AMY'S HAVING A PARTY...we're invited - AND SO ARE YOU!!

Mark your calendar now - August 15, 2009

3-5pm at the Oronoco Gold Rush Days...

Well...this is one of my "junk dreams come true"...

...a trip to Minnesota (with my junking friend, Candy Allen of "The Junk Sophisticate" ) for some HUGE junking fun, AND an invitation to Amy's blog party at the Oronoco Gold Rush Days (click on the button to the right...).



It's our FIRST blog party and WE'RE SO EXCITED!!! I'm pretty new to the blogging world, and have loved every minute of it (still looking for that "Blogging for Dummies" book though...). I can't wait to meet (in person) bloggers I've "come to know" as well as make some new friends too!


It looks like Amy has some great things planned for all who attend...

prizes, food (a junk potluck), fun and more...



Candy and I will leaving Ohio and heading west to Minnesota for four days (with a junking itinerary that screams FUN), and our weekend will be topped off to perfection by hitting the streets of Oronoco and going to Amy's blog party. We'll be helping Amy out a bit (along with a few other contributors from JunkMarket Style) - and don't you know I'm going to be the first in line to get my "Junk Beautiful Outdoor Edition" signed by Sue Whitney of JunkMarket Style!


Now my next big dilemma - what does one wear to a blog party???


Please leave a post and let me know if you're planning on being there - the more the merrier!!


Here's the link to the Oronoco Gold rush Days website - check it out:

Stay tuned for more details!


  1. I just mapquested this... I'm only 4 hours away!!!! I nudged (with love, of course) Hubby over to the computer and he said, "Yeah, I know exaclty where that's not far from us." GASP Then he said, "Want to go? I'll drive you up there. We should probably take the truck." GASPING Do I want to go? Of course I do!!! I've only been blogging since... well, 22 days ago! But I have been stalking many of you via JMS website for awhile! LOL... I am always using your ideas! Would it be silly for me to go to a 'blog party' since I'm so new??????

  2. Amy - please come - I'd love to meet you! It'll be so much fun to meet some of our new blogging friends face-to-face! And have lots of junk fun! Your hubby is so sweet for volunteering to drive you - (with a truck??? - ok, that's priceless!). If you want, you can stop by Amy's blog and let her know you may be coming - it will definitely be "the more the merrier"!!!

    Will stop by your blog and say hi too!

    Take care, Kathy

  3. I would so love to go to this, not sure if it's in the cards though. Have a great time and post LOTS of pics.

  4. Kathy, we are gonna have so much fun!!! The camping I'm not so sure about though. Ha! Seriously we've got so much planned. Can't wait!


  5. Hi Kathy
    Thanks again for the email....thought I would give commenting another try. I think that the problem REALLY was that I was getting my passwords mixed up. Have so many for various things, can't keep them straight!!!
    Love, love, love your blog and all the junk masterpieces you do!!!

  7. Pam - thanks for stopping by - and there will be definitely lots of pictures taken!

    Amy & Lani - it's gonna be fun with a capital "F"!

    Janis - yeah!!! It worked! So glad you stopped by...and by the way...I love your junk too!!


  8. Yep! We'll be on our way! So happy to be having you as a road trip buddy since you are a "low maintenance traveler". Love that.

    Amy @ The Lemon Cottage- It would be great to meet! From what I've read online about Gold Rush Days, it will be well worth your travels!

    ps Love that pic of the Minnesota map w/ buttons, Kathy!
