The winner of the Junk Addicts Unite Giveaway is… So, can I just say, first, that the drawing of the giveaway winner was completely random… but is anything in life ever really random? I believe not.

The Junk Drunk Link Party No. 2

It’s time to party with junk! Three Junk Addicts participated in the first ever Junk Drunk Link Party last Friday.   Little parties with kindred spirits are just as fun as big blowouts, don’t you think? City Girl Arts created a magnificently shabby and weathered set of “Junky Old Doors.”  My heart did a little pitter pat…

The Junk Addicts Unite Giveaway: Why “Junk Addicts Unite?”

The Junk Addicts Unite Giveaway: The Boxing Gloves

So, what’s with the boxing gloves? I joked often about fighting, bringing your best fight face and brawling at the thrift shop. But really, “the fight” is so much more than that.    It’s about the reasons behind why you must rescue that piece of junk, complete that project, protect your ideas, keep your focus.  It’s about believing in…

Back from the Big Adventure

I came home from the Galapagos Islands (more on that later, I promise) in the evening, late last week.  Mr. Old House Chic picked me up, gave me a big I-Missed-You-So-Much hug then announced that he needed to tell me something about the house.  Yeah, I said a not out loud uh oh, as well… Here’s…

My Top Ten Junk Pick List

When I walk in the front door of an antique boutique,  junk shop, thrift store, architectural salvage yard or flea market, I have a top ten pick list on a mental Post-It note stuck in my head.  I am always open to add to it, but there are the solid ten things I love and am always…

Junk Drunk Part 4

After going through everything I bought from the little old lady, I sobered up completely and the two missing hours all came back… As I staggered through the front picket fence gate, I noticed the little old lady at the fence line. Let me stop here and explain what my first impression of the “little…
