The Power of Coffee and Pickers

I am SO going to need this when I get in the car at 4AM tomorrow morning.
Coffee can cure so many ills!  Sadly there will be no room in the car for even a coffee cup tomorrow.  Besides, at O'Dark Thirty AM it's too dark to see your coffee cup!
This piece is already in the car waiting for an unveiling at the Burlington Antique Show.  We're hoping the Pickers Producers (say THAT five times fast!) will pick our booth as a fun and interesting stop during the show!  Fingers crossed, toes crossed and Boy Wonder has set his alarm to join me.  He's got two of his own picks in my booth this time and is bound and determined to sell them for a profit (on TV would be even better he assures me).
This was a quick morning project from a gifted window (because you all know how we junque lovers get people to give us stuff they would otherwise throw away) and a coffee bean sack.  An easy and caffeinated graphic pop of home decor.  Hoping it finds a good home with another coffee addict lover.
Heading to Burlington tomorrow?
Do stop in and say hello.  You can find me and my junque:
Burlington Antique Show
Boone County Fairgrounds
Space #69 - on the concrete around the horse ring (and ever so conveniently diagonal from the Kettle Korn - not that I'm addicted to that either?)

I hope your sale went well, Carrie! We missed you at our little outing. We hit a couple of stores and found some already "found" junque! Did you bring back some kettle corn or did you eat it all there? LOL

It was a pleasure to meet you Carrie. I look forward to a few local junking adventures!

If I was them, I'd pick your booth! This is great and I'm a coffee addict, junk addict and your newest follower. Good luck in Burlington.

Next to the Kettle Korn is a dangerous place to be. I hope you had a great show. Love that window as a frame for the sack.

That is a great way to display the coffee bag. I hope you had a great time! My next stop is to go back to your 'after' post and see how it went! Sounds like fun. I would've gone if it was closer. :) thanks for linking up to the party!
