A Repurposing Kinda Day

It's Earth Day or the unofficial junker's holiday. You see us junkers do our part everyday. We help cleanup Mother Earth with every piece of junk we rescue!

To celebrate the day, here is a little repurposed junk project. An old rusty sprinkler and a little wire makes a pretty sweet photo and note holder we think!

Enjoy and go rescue some cool junk today for Mother Earth.

Tonight's Junk Club

Tonight's Junk Club is gonna be fun!! We are making our salvaged wire note boards. It's not a crazy intensive project, but we like to create fun and different junk, plus you get to go home with a super cool piece that you create! Today will be consumed by baking, chopping, and a little cleaning.
This time I really didn't decide on our menu until yesterday, which is cutting it way to close. So, for this evenings menu our junkies will be served:)

~Junk Food~

Smoked Brisket
Jalapeno Pepper Creamy Cheesey Corn (really it's yummy)
Coleslaw with a twist
Tomato Poppers

For dessert......Poppyseed Cake with a dusting of powdered sugar

I think I'm gonna be busy today. Hopefully, the girls will help mommy lots! This weekend let the work begin. We'll be washing, scrubbing, sanding, organizing, creating, painting....the list could go on and on!

Have a great weekend & Happy junking,

Wanted: Your Opinion

Help me!! It's that time again for me to start making tags for our spring market merchandise. I can't decide if I should stick with our old faithful grungy tags or go with something fresh and bright! Can you girls and boys(if your out there) give me your opinions? Here's a close up....what do you think?

Thank you soooo much!!

Home Sweet Home

It has been insanity around here!!! Last week the junk hunk and I hit the road for a 3 state junking trip! Wow, it was intense. We had a great time finding some unique and cool junk. Our metal barn is full and our other barn is full of projects. We have a month to go before our spring market and we'll need every second!! Of course, we'll have to squeeze in a little more junking too. You can never pass up a good junking opportunity!

We got back home on Sunday. Then it was time for me to get serious and to our tax work. Yes, we totally procrastinated! It's done now for another year. Yippy!!

Moving forward....our April Junk Club is tomorrow night. Salvaged wire note boards is what we will be creating. Our menu for the evening I am still deciding. I can't make up my mind! For desert it will be a lemon poppyseed cake with a dusting of powdered sugar on top...yummy!

I have to admit when it comes to taking pictures of what we got on our junking trips I fail miserably. We are always in such a hurry whether its loading or unloading. Maybe I'll just take a picture of everything piled up in our building!

Hope you have a beautiful day and Happy junking!!
