I *heart* junk!


My mom and I had the pleasure of going to the JunkMarket ladies Junk Bonanza today!!! You've probably seen their new magazine. They have so many creative tricks up their sleeve. I went away with an Autumn Glory sign and a couple of old shutters to get creative with. Boy did I have fun taking pictures:) The colors and the textures were amazing. They had lots of fun junk stuff and some gorgeous fall flowers and gourds! So sit back and enjoy a little photo tour of the junk sale!!!

On top of all that, I got my Designing with Color book today:) It's almost like a Freestyle part II. Looks fabulous! I'm off to bed saturated with color and ready to soak in all this inspiration!

Wow!What fun!
I used to go to antiquing and to flea markets.
I still have things I haven't gotten to yet.
I'm unable to go out much anymore, so I like your blog.

Hi Kari,
I saw your post on Poppy Ink & came over to check out your blog. I am so envious that you got to go to the Junk Market thing. I'm in Wisconsin & would have loved to have gone, but didn't have anyone to go with me? (Can you believe how insane my friends are -- they're not real into this stuff yet. LOL)

I also rec'd my DW Color book today & am not going to bed tonight until I read it!

Have a great weekend. :)
