Maryland Junk Pics & Herb Class Photos!

Happy Sunday!


I finally got around to taking some pictures of some of the junk Maryland gave up!


I had a blast shopping up there! We went to Gettysburg one day (LOVED IT) and even found junk there! Before I get into more of the junk pics, I wanted to share some photos of our Herb Container class we held at the shop yesterday. The weather was PERFECT!


I set up the class on our big front porch.....
Everyone had their choice of a container (old collanders, baskets, metal buckets....) and three herbs to plant.....



We got down and dirty planting, learning and sharing.....



Then we got hungry!! Lunch is served!!
I whipped up Easy Herb Biscuits.....




Fresh Herb Chicken Salad with grapes, dates and apricots....




I also demonstrated how to make a Basil Tomato Salad but forgot to snap a pic!
For dessert we had Lavender Tea cookies from the awesome Country Charm bakery!



It was a FUN morning and the class lasted about 1 1/2 hours. Each person went home with their planter and a folder filled with info, recipes and I even made each gal an Herb tag to hang on their container. We will be having a class next month for sun or shade containers using the Thriller, Spiller , Filler method!


Okay....onto some more fabulous junk pics!!


Take a look at this old metal mail box!


Don't you just love is was for a manse!!


Good grief , I bout got a hernia carrying it to the check out ,but totally worth it!



More chippy goodness in the form of yet another mail box, stool, egg basket.


I found two shiney trophy cups as well and did a happy dance all the way to cash register right before the hernia thing!





Can't pass on these old scales. Usually whenever I find one they are outrageous....like 75.00 or something. WHY? No idea. This one was like in the single digits......perfect!






Wait til you see the back of this seed sack.......




old chippy green/ white mirror....



adorable little coat rack


AND.......



THE back of the seed sack! Perfect for a pillow don't ya think??


Sure hope your Sunday is sunny and bright!


I am off to straighten up the shop.

What an awesome idea for a class. Wish we had something like that around here...I'd totally go. I'd love your recipe for the Tomato Basil Salad. Sounds yummy. I think you should make a bumper sticker that says, "Real junkers have hernias." LOL!!! I've at least pulled a muscle on more than one occasion. Thanks for your sweet words on my lavender letters. I actually have a moment this morning to blog hop & respond to emails. Woo!

Love ya,
Jami

The herb class sounded so neat. Would love to get involved in something like this. And the food looked delicious. Great to serve food that went along with the class. Looks like all the ladies were enjoying themselves. Love all the goodies you shared with us. Especially the old feed sack. Those things are getting so expensive and hard to find. Have a great day and thanks for sharing photos with us.
