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

I have to say, you are one girl that constantly changes, and changes displays. Now I know that its not only at the store you are doing this, but at home as well! Sometimes you just gotta do it, right?

Take care, Sue

Hi Kate, you have the prettiest junk I have ever seen.

Happy birthday to your gorgeous son. My son who will be 15 on Sunday is thinking more now about the food that he puts into his body. Maybe he is finally listening to me since I changed my eating habits many years ago. Of course, after my summer in the STates, I got a little more junk in my trunk that I like. HA!

I LOVE those crocheted necklaces mama made for you you and your daughter. I saw on someone else's blog something similar and thought I would like to give it a go. Now I am inspired to do just that.

Hope you have a fabulous Hump Day! :) Blessings, Tammy

JUNK Vignettes, who would've thunk it!?!
But if anyone was going to turn their junk into an artful piece of Eye Candy it was going to be Princess Kate!
You've got such an eye for putting things together.

See you at Irvine this Sunday!

Linda said...

Faded Charm said...

Thank you so much Kate. I'm just so exhausted from today. Not how I had planned my day.....the call from the school telling me they had called an ambulance because he was hurt in P.E. class. Not sure what to think, but the day kept getting more intersteing. He ended up breaking his leg and needing surgery with a steel plate and pins. It was so hard as a Mom to see my son in pain like that. He is better now and the recovery process will begin. I kept telling myself all day that it could have been worse and I felt so fortunate that I have three healthy children.

I know you can relate with pain and hurting and you've survived....we will too. Right now I'm heading to bed so I can be there first thing in the morning when he wakes up.

Take care,

Kathleen
