Junk in my trunk Vignette

I decided to take on the challenge and link up to Donna's PARTY

at Funky Junk Interiors... and I was so inspired that I linked up

to Debra's Vintage Inspiration Friday.

So I'm looking at this table in the garage of cast off's

items I have not done anything with and yet under the

table was my old wood dollie

good staging platform and it has wheels

I was having much fun

out on my driveway

after playing with all of these pieces I

decided to bring the trunk inside and place

it on my favorite chippy table

 Inspiration was endless after I had seen

some of the vignettes that

other ladies had put together with

their junk!

What fun

I am also linking up to

Kathleen's White Wednesday 

one woman's junk

and her treasure

all the right moves

as far back as I can remember mama said follow your instinct...

and when it tells me to move I move

and when my heart whispers stay I wait...

industrial piece that hubby worked on

for my space at the Store

this vintage scale was my moment of go

I turned a corner and there it was..

and now for the stay...

white, rusted and five tiers


I filled her layers with wonderful

goodness much that came from these

talented ladies at

I love selling statement pieces

mama loves to crochet and she made some

sweet necklaces for me

and little "G"

mama spoiled her big girl too

primping before the celebration

of my middle punk who just turned "18"

Christopher studies nutrition and

how food affects the body as you can

see I have to sneak my "junk" food

in our house

under that muscle is a heart of gold

and a young man whom

I simply adore

signing off with lots of

monkey business

Vintage Inspiration Friday " in the mix "

I am linking up to our lovely Debra from Common Ground

for her Vintage Inspiration Friday...

Sue's boy BRYCE inspires me.....

whenever I am in the Store I have to

stop by to see his wonderful talent

not only is Bryce full of talent but charm as well

he is never too busy to give a warm

hello and offer to help

his gentleness reminds me of why we love

this business of "junkin"

old vintage tool drawers that I sold this week

the tiny ones were my favorite

old doors inspire me

I layered these doors for more texture

as you can see the "crows have landed "

a girl can have fun!!!

Thank you Debra for letting us share

what inspires us...

vintage always inspires me...

Happy Friday Ladies xoxo
