Dreaming of Junking Calendar


I trust you all had a Merry and Blessed Christmas?

Ours was bittersweet, as we had to travel up to the
Pacific Northwest to attend my father-in-law's funeral,
but we are at peace knowing that he is no longer suffering.

It was a low-key Christmas at the Lorys household....
we spent Christmas Eve with my beautiful friend 
Binky, her family and sweet mutual friends.

We also took in the movie Les Miserables Christmas night,
and now I'm enjoying a few days of post Christmas
down-time with no photo editing to do. Yay me!!!
I finished editing my house photos for some
upcoming magazine features, so I'll keep you
in the loop about that as news develops.

In the meantime, I'd love to share with you
the latest ab-fab ( © Sue @VRS ) 
offering and project from my uber-talented
junker idol, Sue at Vintage Rescue Squad.

available via Sue's Etsy Shop.

This is her third year of putting together these
completely amazing calendars, each one chock full
of not only titillating photos of drool-worthy JUNK,
but also a month-to-month update on all the junking
hot spots and events across this great big, junk-filled
land of ours!

I've been lucky enough to be included all three years,
and this year I even got the cover.


Thank you, Sue!

I have three other photos inside,
and I'm super jazzed to be sharing this honor
with Sue herself, as well as fabulous photog

Here are a couple more images of mine featured inside...

Cat and Sue's offerings are to die for,
as they are both superb photographers
and junking goddesses.
I hope you'll head on over to Sue's Etsy
and order your calendar now!

Next go 'round, I still need to give you the scoop
on my current Romantic Country magazine feature!

I'd also like to invite you to follow me on
Instagram at 

I'm adding new pics over there all the time,
it's just another fun way to keep in touch!

Hi Anne- it's been so long since I've visited! Your photos look amazing. We moved back to Pa. (from Maine) in Sept. and it's been crazy since. Finally, I am starting to breathe again. I started at a local hospital (ICU) in Sept., but will soon be jumping to PACU- thank God. Are you still working? Sorry about your FIL, hope hubby is doing OK. Merry Christmas!

Hi! I'm a new follower! Ive recently found the folk style blog, and ordered the magazine, which led me to some wonderful new blogs! So here I am, enjoying all this wonderful talent! Haven't bought a calender yet, love this one. I adore the little photo holders! So cute! So sorry to read about your father-in-law. We lost a loved one this month too. Makes for a difficult Christmas, but she was very ill and in pain.
