It's just me...

So here I am in all my glory~ doin what I love to do best!
I snagged, took , stole, borrowed this photo from Sue at Vintage Rescue Squad.
She recently did another Southern Fried post about our day of junkin. Hop on over to her place to read all about it!
Back to this photo.....it made me laugh.
THIS right here is me at my best. Maybe not the best outfit, or hair really ...good grief ....it's so unbelievably hot down here. I think the equator runs right though North Carolina now. UGH!
Anyway, this was one of those perfect days....Throw your hair up in a clip, slap on some mascara and lip balm, t-shirt, flip flop, truck load of junk wonderful kind of days. The best part was sharing it with a new friend that loves junk as much as I do. The other funny thing about this picture is what you don't see! The day before Sue and I were to meet up, I didn't realize that Mr. OTM was going to be taking the truck to the shop to get some work done on the air conditioning. They had to take the WHOLE DASHBOARD off and well, they didn't get it all done that day and I HAD TO HAVE the truck if we were going junkin so I had to take it as is....with the dashboard laying in the backseat.
Yep, welcome to Redneck Ville, I am your Mayor.
I was embarrassed for like 0.5 seconds. Then hit the road to start the hunt.
So, there ya have me. Keepin it real , doing what I love!

I am just green with envy that Sue got to come junkin in your neck of the woods. Oh I so need to take a road trip your way!

That is so funny! That would be me too. Like, the "I was embarrassed for about 0.5 second" and then you had to go junkin'. Thanks for stopping by.

I loved this photo; glad to see it more-widely circulated. And no worries about me "outing" you about the dash. I've had duct tape on my car for a YEAR, not just one day. XOX
