The Junk Drunk Party
In keeping with the spirit of new found junk friendship with each of you, I started thinking about a junk community and how fast this seemed to form starting with my first post How to Identify a Junk Addict followed by this second post Junk Addicts Unite! I also did a series on our favorite Little Old Lady. I loved each of your comments so much that I am continuing on with trying to create a gathering place, here on the Old House Chic Blog, for all Junk Addicts.
So, welcome to the first of many link parties, called…
The Junk Drunk Link Party!
Drunk?! Just hang on, let me explain…
If you have ever been intoxicated by the affects of a good find, gotten snookered over salvage, adrenaline trashed over antiques, pickled over a pick, toasted over a thrift store treasure, drunk over dumpster diving, crazy giddy over stuff on picked up at the curb, gobbered over a garage sale, crazed from your CraigsList catch- the Junk Drunk Link Party is the place for you!
Here are the specifics:
If you can answer these questions…
1. Found a beaten up old chest of drawers on a curb? A wornout table at the thrift shop? An unwanted chair in a dumpster? How about a diamond in the rough on CraigsList? A piece of salvage at a demolition site? An unlikely and upcycle worthy object?
2. Did you makeover that chest of drawers from the curb? Refinish or refurbish the thrift store table? Fix up that unwanted chair? Create a new life for your CraigsList item? Saved your salvage? Upcycled your object to the totally unique?
Did you answer yes to any of that? Well, then…
Welcome to the Junk Drunk Link Party! I want to hear about your adventures with your junk- the makeovers, the upcycling, the genius new use you thought of for your junk.
For those of you who are bystanders, waiting in the getaway car or at home saying a silent prayer that your loved one comes home and is not currently sitting in jail clutching their find to their chest looking at the jailer with their best fight face, feel free to comment on the posts from us Junk Addicts! (…and if you face plant into your own Junk Addiction, welcome home!)
The first Junk Drunk Link Party will start this Friday, November 14, 2014 at 7:00 am and will be ready (unless I screw it up) for your links to be added to the Junk Drunk Link Party Post. I plan on having a Junk Drunk Party every Friday after that…Want to join?
Get busy! Hurry up! C’mon! I can’t wait to see what y’all come up with!
