I didn't hit any yard sales this weekend and I'm suffering withdrawals. I didn't expect that there would be too many anyway because of Memorial Day. But--this is week two sans sales and I'm getting the itch.

I organized my pantry yesterday. I know it doesn't look like much but OMG if you had seen it before you wouldn't believe it could look like this.

Remember my painting?

My husband stopped at the "inspiration" Dog River Bridge and snapped this picture. Pretty neat, huh?

Well, Good Lord willing and the creek don't rise...I will be out sale-ing this weekend. And look for a booth re-do in the next week or so. The big ice cream blowmold is about to make its debut!!!

No sales for you!!! Well really I stopped at one church sale this morning. It was kind of a disappointment. They had about 6 tables and each table had a set price. They had a $1.00, $2.00, etc tables. You get the picture. So, er, um, nothing was less than $1.00. Just not my kind of sale. Things were too neatly organized. I like to dig when I go junking!

Last weekend I went to a wedding and the reception was held at the Five Rivers facility. Five Rivers is located right off Mobile Bay. It was GORGEOUS! I snapped a few pictures from one of the many docks. The views are incredible. These shots are looking toward the downtown Mobile skyline. If you look closely you can see the RSA tower, the tallest building in Alabama.

Last Sunday I went to a paint party at my friend's church. This was my first time to attend one of these "paint parties" and I loved it! This is my picture. It is the Dog River bridge. I chose to paint this because my husband keeps his sailboat at Dog River, right near this very bridge.

So, are these parties all the rage everywhere else? They are huge here!

One more thing....

This was my fortune on a recent trip to the Chinese buffet.

Small countries beware!

Member's Only

My nephews mercilessly tease my husband. It can be over anything from what he has on to mispronouncing a word. It's all in good fun.

Well, one day said husband had on a little windbreaker type jacket that my oldest nephew thought was a little outdated. When I saw this shirt last night at the thrift store it reminded me of the jacket.

Well, where am I going with all of this you ask? It was a comment my nephew made. You remember the Members Only jackets, right?

So he told my husband:

That's a Members Only jacket and you are the only member!

Hee-larious. I did not buy the shirt. I left it for some other "member."

What I've Been Up To

It seems like I have been busier than usual and I don't see any end in sight.

Saturday was one of my favorite church yard sales of the year. Shout out to Dayspring Baptist Church! They have one huge sale every year and the proceeds go to missions. I found a ton of stuff! And listen to this. . . books were .10 a piece. Ten cents! I stocked up on spiral cookbooks, which are a very good seller in the booth. They also had tons of vintage salt and pepper sets for 1.00 each. I bought several sets but now realize I should have bought every set! These also sell well for me.
I found an near complete set of Corelle with a demure red and pink floral pattern. That will be making its way to the booth too.

Speaking of the booth, this is a picture of the mall I'm in, The Queen's Attic. Ironically the building already had the turrets before the Queens moved in!

The Mobile Register recently did an article on the Queen's Attic. It can be seen here.

My friend Traci and I recently hosted a baby shower for our friend Susan. It was held at the Oyster House. She got some very nice things. Yours truly did the cake and cupcakes:

Wow! I'm jumping all over the place today. Our firm goes all out for Admin Professionals week.

They started the week off with Photoshopping everyone's picture in a frame with a tv show or movie, etc. Here I am as Carol Brady. Ha ha! I didn't too much mind mine but several people hated theirs.

We got a gift everyday including lunch on Wednesday from the Olive Garden and a gift certificate on Friday.

Well I guess that's it for now. Have a good week!

Cha Ching

I did a small booth restock last weekend. When I went by yesterday to straighten up, a couple of things had sold. Now a little breakdown on how I roll...ok, how I operate Ms. Jackie's Junque:

Cute pink giraffe purse:
Paid $2.00 at yard sale
Sold $12.00 at booth.

Super cute new with tags flip flops with the cute and trendy decoration on the top:
Paid .50 cents at yard sale
Sold $10.00 at booth

Several things had sold and I was thankful. Things have been slow.

I added some Toy Story items. I've sold Woody items and they normally fly off the shelf. I hope these do the same.
