Junk Crazed Part 1

This past weekend started out like an ordinary one with a little bit of extra time on my hands.  My normal 40+ hour a week had me going to training and, because of that, I was traveling past several new junk shops. I stopped in at one when I saw a really neat cubby.  I…

The Junk Drunk Link Party No. 4

Welcome to the Junk Drunk Link Party! I was a little lonely last Friday and wound up junkin’ at the party by myself. Since I can’t feature any of your fantastic projects, I’ll share one of my own with you… I found this beautiful antique wooden drop leaf table a while back and held on to…

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…

Let me stop here and explain what my first impression of the “little…

Junk Drunk Part 3

I sat in the driver’s side front seat of my SUV taking deep cleansing breaths to purge the intoxicating scent of junk out of my system.  I swear I could feel my head clear and glanced in the rearview mirror.  What is that in my back seat?!  I got out of the car and wrenched…

Junk Drunk Part 2

If you are up to date with the first part of this post, Junk Drunk Part 1, you know that Junk Intoxication is in full force and getting worse… I teetered and tottered across the street (where seconds before, I almost got hit by a car)  as my purse banged against my leg, upside down…

Junk Drunk Part 1

I had been trying and trying to catch a certain antique junk shop open but I always seemed to show up when the doors where closed and the windows were darkened. The hours of the shop?  Whenever they wanted to be open.  The good stuff is located in an old house and all around it…
