    Easter Weekend Junkin’ Finds

    Hello everyone! I hope you all had a great Easter weekend! Did you get a chance to do any junkin’ in between all the fun holiday activities? I got lucky on a couple of sales so I have a few junkin’ finds to share with you today.

    shabby chic yard sale treasures

    Here’s my small loot haul. Still not too shabby for only hitting three sales and $8 spent!

    Well, actually it is kind of a shabby loot haul, my kind of shabby!

    As in shabby-chic, like this small vintage oil lamp, pretty gold mirror and tiny solid brass bunny with perfect patina!

    Gorgeous Vintage blue glass bottle brown glass bottle

    I also found two more bottles for my collection. So many cool finds, it’s hard to choose a favorite!

    vintage golf basket as easter basket azalea

    This old rusty, yellow golf basket, was only $1.00. It’s a pretty cool find because my youngest son just took up golf and he likes old sports related junk too. I couldn’t resist using it for an Easter basket, at least for the weekend! As you can see from the Nerf guns and swords in the background (keepin’ it real), it was a nice Easter weekend with lots of outdoor fun. Spring has sprung in full force and yard sale season is really here now. Can’t wait til next weekend! Are you ready to get junkin’ too?

    Not So Junky Junkin’ Finds

    I am a junkaholic. Or at least I think I think I am. I love a good rummage sale and prefer to spend my free time on the hunt for anything vintage. My previous blog and IG name, “Junkaholics Unanimous” was a play on my addiction to junkin’ and being proud of it. On my blog I called for all vintage junk addicts to proudly unite along with me, and many did! One day I was discussing the ideas for my new blog with my dear blogging friend Olivia at Reinvented CollectionShe has a stunning blog and gorgeous French style. She has been such a blessing to me as I have jumped back on the blogging horse and I truly value her opinion and expertise.

    We were discussing whether or not to keep my old name on Instagram and other social media accounts when I launched Follow The Yellow Brick Home. Out of nowhere she said, “Amber! ‘Junkaholic’ does NOT represent your style!” One thing about Olivia—she is a straight shooter!

    Brocante junk finds shabby chic rusty treasures and antique frames

    What? Why? How? Junk IS my style. I love anything chipping, rusty, crusty, old…junky!  Olivia is in Alaska, so she hasn’t had the opportunity to see my collections of  jars of antique marbles, vintage buttons, and mismatched game pieces, hoards of vintage pearls, or stacks of antique post cards curated neatly around my home. Neatly. Yikes! So maybe I am not be a hoarder? I might be having a crisis of identity!

    After listening to her reasoning I began to agree with her. I love to go junkin’, but I really do have a more brocante and shabby-French Farmhouse style. I don’t have hoards of rusty metal and salvaged wood piled up behind the garage (anymore). Inside the garage is a different matter…

    Let’s take a look at some of my recent finds that support Olivia’s opinon. Read more
