It's the little things

Happy Friday!!

We made it through another week. I always look forward to the weekends because thats when we get our junk on! Lately, Kasey has stayed home with the girls while I go out on junk hunts, but tomorrow grandma is watching the girls, so both of us get to play, it's always more fun!!

Often times we highlight big pieces we've rescued, but today, I thought the little guys should get some attention. Ironstone platters, one of our biggest weaknesses. Letters & numbers too! Its always nice to have these good old basics when working on projects.

Hope you find lots of cool junk this weekend. xoxo jojo

Cinnamon & Sugar

We are huge cinnamon & sugar fans. Our girls love it on toast on these cold winter mornings. As, you all know we have been having some crazy weather this winter. Last week it was an ice storm and this week was a blizzard, no joke! We ended up staying at my mom's so we didn't get snowed in again. This is where this little cute cinnamon shaker calls home. I have seen it at her house many times, but for some reason this particular day I have decided I must have it! It is a hoosier cupboard spice jar. It is too cute and I want one for our C&S. So, I am on the great junk hunt once again for one of these little cutie pies. If any of you come across one please let me know!! Hope you all are having a great week, the weekend is almost here. Happy junking, jojo:)

soldering 101

Question: Why Soldering? Kasey & I just had to0!

As with all things junk, its not perfect. I love the imperfections and the distressed quality of soldered pieces. These two necklaces are a few of our first creations. It has opened up a new door to things we can create. Another addiction begins.....

What are your new addictions for 2010? Happy Junking! jojo

January Junk Club

Ephemera Journals

Ok, really I was very indecisive about Junk Club this month. We will create 3 mini journals/notebooks on club night. I always try to be season appropriate and really thoughtful about the project of the month. In January we all are trying to reorganize and regroup after the holiday craziness, so I wanted to pick something that would help us do that. After debating many projects I decide these mini journals would be just perfect.

As with all of our junk clubs a mini dinner and drinks are included. I like to think of it as a time to relax, create, and laugh with other junkers. We always have so much fun! If you want more details click here. We have 8 spots available!

Now that we're done with that, I finally got dug out, and we went junking! We we're quite happy with our haul! A cool advertising metal wall cabinet, picture frame, old movie film shipping containers, a dresser, and more. I've teased you! Hope you find some good junk this week! xoxo jojo

Cabin Fever

Is there anybody out there? I am a prisoner in my own house. Snowed in...... waiting for the plow to come by. We had another 6 or so inches of snow on Wednesday. Followed by 40mph winds, which lead to major drifting!! My junk hunk couldn't even make it home yesterday. And now we are in the deep freeze!

I don't care what the weather is tomorrow, jojo is going junking!!!! Do you hear that Old Man Winter? I am leaving my house!!!!!! That is if the plow comes by.....

I have been totally dragging my feet about our Junk Club project for this month. I WILL be making a decision today. Watch the website for club night date and if your signed up for the JC Newsletter, you'll get the email first.

Hope all of you are staying warm and safe. Have a great weekend! jojo

Happy New Year!

I hope all of you had a beautiful holiday season. The craziness is over, things are quieting down, and HA! That's a nice thought, but things around here are always crazy. We have lots to do and learn in this new year.

One of my goals this year is to master the art of soldering! I was a lucky little girl and got all the equipment needed for Christmas. Kasey and I both made our first creations. They will be making their appearance soon.

We have set our OC 2010 Market schedule, get your pens out!
May 15th & 16th
October 9th & 10th
Jolly Junk December 4th

Keep posted as we have so many things we want to create and we've already been busy junking for our May Market. If you can't wait until then, stop by our online shop.

Friday Nite Junk Club is starting again in the New Year! We would love to hear what you want to create. Is there something that you've been dying to try, but just haven't? Let us know, your project just might get picked!

I am sure there is more to tell, but I'll save it for tomorrow. Happy Junking in 2010! jojo
