I had NO IDEA when I started blogging back on the 1st January this year that I was to become part of an AMAZING community of supportive creative souls....Or for that fact, that many of you reading of my junking adventures would be from different time zones....I NEVER contemplated reading cheery words from Italy, Finland, England, Scotland, New Zealand, Canada or Wales though I DID have a sneaking suspicion I'd hear from the US....
For a while when I first started it seemed as if I was all alone....I remember calling out to Mr SVJ as he left for work one morning that FIVE people had found me & were reading my blog....When he poked his head back in the bedroom door where I sat in bed with my laptop I had the BIGGEST smile on my face you'd have thought I'd won the lottery....hahahahahaha....Well really I HAD....I had found YOU & you had found ME and this very simple fact STILL makes me SMILE OUT LOUD....!
One of the first people to climb on board the Shabby Vintage Junk train was Gina from Vintage Junk In My Trunk & it is with Gina that I have the HONOUR of sharing my 100th post.
