junkers migration.

March 19, 2013

my favorite time of year…the time of year when the texas sun warms your shoulders after a cold winter. the time of year when the grass turns green again, the bluebonnets blanket the sides of the roads in the most beautiful velvety shade of blue, the birds are chirping…and the junkers, well, the junkers head south. south to texas.

south to the junk capital of the world. it’s the bi-annual migratory pattern of the species junkus mammalias. (that’s the scientific term for junkers…it’s in wikipedia. seriously. (no, not really but maybe it should be)). we arise from winter hibernation…we dust off our junkin’ boots. we stretch our creative muscles. we pull on our work gloves, arm ourselves with plenty of tie-downs for the masses of great junk we plan to acquire and we hit the fields in search of the greatest thing we never knew we didn’t need.

get ready, y’all. the greatest time of year is here. and, like us, you NEED it. TeXAS antiques week is kinda like chicken noodle soup…it feeds your soul. so get here as fast as you can. hit the highways or the backroads. you’ll be glad you did…it’s time for a little junk therapy.

    I’m from Texas but now I live in Georgia…beautiful here, but I’m sooo homesick! I miss the bluebonnets! I’m a junker and hit the backroads of Georgia…but nothing compares to Texas goods!

    So, I just had to ask. Are you girls going to be decorating Miranda Lambert and Blake Shelton’s new Bed and Breakfast???? If so, I will have to try even harder to visit someday.
