Junkin' in Texas - WOYWW - Wednesday 200

Nothin' better than junkin' in Texas on a sunny spring day and finding lots of junky beads and broken jewelry to recycle or upcycle! Now that's what I call livin'!  Got to travel with some of my fellow junkers last Friday to Warrenton, Tx!  Our first stop was at County Line corner where our friend, Farita, always has trays of broken and junk jewelry for us to paw through.  We can fill a zip lock bag for $5!  And we did just that!  WOW!

So, my friends, that is what is on my work desk this murky, dreary, rainy Wednesday in Central Texas! (Although we certainly welcome the much needed rain, since the drought is about to kill us down here!) here is a peek at a portion of my work desk (April's my computer desk...I'm still not brave enough to show you my REAL work desk.)

 Lucious junk beads and broken jewelry!  YES!

 My colorful stash of silk sari remnants to use  with my new junk beads in making my wrap bracelets! Can't wait to get started!

More cool stuff at Warrenton!
This booth in Warrenton called "Stash"  was so darling and decorated so uniquely.  The young couple was from Cleveland, Ohio!

  1. Hi, Dix - thanks for visiting me on WOYWW. Isn't it great to meet new folks this way? I've just had a quick tour round your blog, and will be back for more!! Have a great week, and I hope the sun comes out for you. Chris xx

  2. Wow, what a riot of colour - the fabrics are stunning and what a wonderful bargain - a bag of beads for $5! Looks like you've going to have lots of fun with all that stash!
    Happy WOYWW!

  3. Hi Dix,

    Yep, you hit the motherload there! I've bought sari silk ribbon at a local shop and love it. The rich colors and the feel just can't be beat. I can't wait to see the bracelets that you make! I've signed up as your latest follower.

    Happy WOYWW
