Junk in the Trunk (and then some)

They say beauty is in the eye of the beholder and my eyes behold a whole lot of treasure in what some see as trash.  There ain’t no such thing as JUNK to me.

Santa, It’s Time To Stop The Madness and Start Recycling

Remember “The Island of Misfit Toys”? I sure do, in fact that cartoon may have a lot to do with my junk-a-mania!!!!!!
It was waaay back in the 1960’s that the Holiday classic first broadcast. The plot depicted how all the defective and unwanted toys from Santa’s workshop were sent off to an island/sanctuary (I don’t think so!)
Man oh man, thank goodness times are a changing. Those defective, unwanted and discarded pieces of the past are now recycled, repurposed and celebrated for being for the misfit’s they once were.
My message to Santa this year is to get with it, recycle, repurpose, re-tweek and stop the  madness.

Celebrating “Junk” with Eclectic Abandon

imageJust another wonderful day in my “junk” filled paradise and I couldn’t be more grateful.  This summer has provided ample opportunity to celebrate all things imperfect.  I have picked up lots of old beat up furniture and had a blast drinking wine and getting dirty while putting “a little paint on the old barn” and listening to my favorite crooner Dean Martin.

Also have some really cool old items, that wear their well-earned rust wonderfully.  In addition, I attempted to flex my green thumb on some different ideas for succulent potting.  The succulent thing is definitely a learning process but I just love finding ways to display them a just a little differently.

My goal is to milk every bit of summer sunshine and warmth for all the yard sale booty I can scrounge/aka score!!!!!!!!!  Then it’s down to the store and hopefully celebrate “junk” and all things imperfect in total eclectic abandon.
