Kathy Stantz, Junk Heaven , OH, US
contributor


My name is Kathy, and Im a junkaholic - there, I said it...feeling much better now!

I was born to junk - always begging things from my grandma, and collecting rocks and Avon bottles when I was little... I refinished my first piece of furniture when I was 18 - and havent stopped re-doing things since...

My friend, Terri, Susan, and I (aka Nostalgia's Cottage) buy old furniture and great vintage junk - and paint, repurpose, etc. It's a great feeling to give a piece of furniture that's worn out or forgotten...a second chance! Or, to turn someone's "trash" into a treasure (and maybe even a new purpose), AND to give it a new home - well, that's why we do what we do!

One of the things we also love to do is restyle vintage jewelry and bits/pieces into unique junk jewelry - necklaces, bracelets and more.

We sell our wares at a few flea markets and shows in Ohio. We are vendors at The Vintage Marketplace at Springfield Antique Show & Flea Market (May & September). In 2014, we will also add occasional sales to our calendar - in downtown, Mansfield, Ohio.

We have a blast - always on the hunt for something! (Would love to quit my day job and do it fulltime!) Every summer we plan a girls trip - junking all the way, and have traveled into Pennsylvania, Kentucky, Tennessee, Indiana - and of course - all over Ohio - one of our most fun trips was the Worlds Longest Yard Sale (250 miles through Kentucky/Tennessee).

My hubby is fairly understanding of my addiction (and has been known to stop and pick something up from the curb if he thinks its something I could use) - but says well never be able to move - too much stuff (I think not!!). My daughter shops my basement when she comes home to visit...(shes her mothers daughter for sure!!).

My personal style is definitely a mix of this and that - cottage/beachy/shabby. I am a collector of many things (my friend says if you have three of something its a collection - so...yep, Ive got a few!) Of course my favorite thing to do is hunt for additions to my collections (and pieces of interesting junk to play with) at flea markets, garage sales, thrift stores, antique shops - and sometimes its just dropped at my doorstep (friends and neighbors - gotta love em!) I collect pottery and ironstone (mostly white - Haeger, Hull, etc.), old clocks, vintage beach stuff - especially beach oil paintings, vintage jewelry, child-size chairs, and lots of other stuff! :)

I am so happy to be a part of JUNKMARKET Style (aka Junkaholics Anonymous) - a great support group for junkaholics like me - HOWEVER, were not looking for a cure - just a whole lotta support!!

I have had the opportunity to meet some of our contributors and members through the shows we attend, and a couple trips to Minnesota - I am so thankful for the friends Ive made along the way... Thanks to Sue for bringing us together. She works tirelessly to keep this the fabulous place it is to share our junk and ideas. All together...were quite a collection (and I mean that in the best way possible)!

God Bless!

Happy junking trails to you!

Twenty years in the "re-making"...and it's finally all "laced" up!

This very old platform rocker (from the 1800s, I think), has literally been hidden away in my basement for about twenty years - because I thought I'd do something with it... (I'm not the only one who's said that, right??)

Thankful...

For being able to do what I love - create junk from junk!

Check out our "new" Check Out "counter"..AND the Springfield Antique Show & Flea Market AND the Vintage Marketplace

It's that time again...EXTRAVAGANZA, so in the middle of the craziness of getting ready, we decided to come up with a "new" check out cabinet...

Just Chiming in!

A little project for our next show, The Summer Market in Avon Lake, Ohio - July 26 and 27.

It's SPRING, and the place to be is "the" SPRINGFIELD Extravaganza!!

A preview: The Rural Society Antique & Garden Show - in the HEART of Ohio!

Hello all...I'm still at it...pedalin' junk!! Here's the next show we're participating in - and sharing a bit of my junk too!

A window of opportunity/organization

Getting organized - it's doesn't have to be "pane"ful...

Let it Snow...let it snow...let it snow

Snowmen (and women) made from vintage bottles and "dressed" in bits and pieces of jewelry, buttons, fabric and more! Just like a snowflake - no two are exactly alike!

A day (or three) at the Fair - the Country Living Fair

I wanted to give you a quick peek of the goings on at the Country Living Fair in Columbus, Ohio in September...which actually gives you a peek at what she'll be up to at the Country Living Fair - South - at Stone Mountain, GA - October 22-24 (yep - this weekend!)

Architecturally speaking - there's great junk at Columbus Architectural Salvage

Sue and I needed a few more pieces and parts to complete the look in the Gorilla Glue tent at the Country Living Fair...so we went on a quest...

JUNKMARKET Style meets Sobo Style - in O-H-I-O!!

Sue...on the road again...and this time she's heading to Ohio...and Sobo Style in Columbus, is her first stop!

Vintage Market Day...and an unexpected trip...

Well, a week later, and our Market Day went off without a hitch...well almost...actually a stitch (6 to be exact)!

To Market...to Market...our first annual "Vintage Market Day"

This Saturday, July 24th, my friends and I are having our first annual (occasional) market... Antiques, primitives, trash-to-treasured vintage decor for your home and garden, redesigned vintage jewelry, junk - and LOTS more!

Back to the Beach...

Yippee - the good ol' summertime - what's not to love, right??

AAJMS - A few of my favorite things

More junk from ART & ARCHITECTURE JUNKMARKET Style...

More from AAJMS...and an outing or two...

My new workbench "Pretty in Pink" (vintage pink!)

A vintage optician's workbench...found a new home - and a new line of work!

"Olde Tyme" Collage

Flea-ing in the Sunshine State!

We visited the fleamarket at Volusia County Fairgrounds this week...

We wish you a Merry Christmas & a Happy New Year!!

My conservatory...decked out for the holiday!

I'm dreaming of a pink Christmas....

Here's an "up close" view of my pink tree from my previous post, and a "few of my favorite things"...

A Ho-Ho - Whole lotta Christmas Junk!

Just a bit of what I've been up to in Christmas junk at my house...

More projects for the show - again, using vintage pieces and parts...

Weight just a minute...there's junk in those paperweights!

Well, we're getting ready for another show, and here's one of my favorite projects - and it's a simple one too!

Sweet Junk at The BitterSweet Cabin

Over the weekend I stopped at one of my new favorite places and visited with my new junking friend, Jan...

RING aROUND the Rosie!

Sue inspired me with her posts on all things "round"...

Springfield Extravaganza - some of our stuff...Part III

Here are some of the things we made for the show...

Springfield Extravaganza - Part II - so much to see and so little time!

Here are some of the sights of the Extravaganza...

"FALL"ing for the Springfield Extravaganza - Part I...

Whether's it's spring or fall...the Springfield Extravaganza is the biggest fun of all (in my humble opinion)! (and I made a rhyme...) :)

Serving up a "light" snack - vintage junk-style!

Here's what I entered in Amy's Junk Potluck - at her blog party at Oronoco...

An old window gets a new job...message central!

An old window and some random pieces and parts seem to fit together perfectly...with a purpose - ORGANIZATION!

From garden fence...to cloche...to chandelier!

Here's the finished product - from my wire "cloche" post - inquiring minds wanted to see! :)

From garden fence to cloche - an unexpected project!

My girlfriends and I had our workshop night and in the midst of a whole different project - a wire cloche was found/made...

A few of my favorite things - from Oronoco with LOVE!!

As a follow-up to Sue's awesome picks from Oronoco...here are some of mine...

Girls' night at the workshop...it's nothing but fun!!!

I've got the best friends...one of our favorite things to do (besides junking together) is having our project nights!

What to get for the junker who has (almost) everything??? It's a "challenge" that's for sure!

Well...this was all my idea, and thought I'd just throw a few ideas out there...

Sometimes it's ok to break a dish (or two)...

A few of my mosaic projects

The Rusty Gardener

Here's "some" of my rusty garden decor...and a little more

My lunchtime menu: JUNK!

On Wednesday, I hit a garage sale - actually more like a mini fleamarket...

Que Sera Sera...Whatever will be...will be...by none other than Doris Day!!

A fun little ditty courtesy of me and my new friend, Doris!

Springfield Extravaganza - tis the season - to "flea"

Well...we survived...Extravaganza!  Lots of stuff to sell, junk to see, and friends to visit with - and we did it all! We arrived on Thursday (the 15th) to set up - lots of excitement ...

A lamp is a lamp, is a lamp...again!

Just another routine stop at the local thrift stores (at lunchtime...), and look what I found.  Sitting on a shelf - looking very cheesy and really outdated - almost ugly (to most peoplewas...

My Texas-sized Junk Swap Package!

Well...my Texas-sized junk swap package arrived a little over a week ago (I'm still finding more stuff in the box...ha ha!!).  Bridget (aka bridiemurphy) was my partner for this swap.  She...

A junking weekend - on the road to Kentucky...(Part 2)

Here are a few pictures of what we saw on our junking/fleamarket trip a week ago.  The show was almost a rain out...but big fun was had by all four of us on the trip down! I wanted to share pics...

Rain or shine...there's junk to be found!!

OK...home and still trying to get "junk" organized from our fleamarket trip...  I not only bought stuff over the weekend, but I also got my junk swap package from bridiemurphy fun...

On the road again...

Well...we're hitting the road to the great state of Kentucky - Burlington, to be exact.  It's our first flea market of the season, and we're ready to set it up and sell it!!!  We've got...

Time for an old drawer to SPRING to life!

I've been inspired by everyone's great spring projects and pretty florals - so...here's my first project for the fleamarket/spring season - with a touch of spring. I guess it's pretty obvious I...

My self-imposed junking intervention (aka organizing my basement workspace...)

Well...I've been organizing my basement workshop - and wanted to get things out in "plain sight" so I'd know what I've got to work with - you know, if it's "out of sight...it's out of mind"nbsp...

Happy Easter & Welcome to our Booth!

Ta-da!!!  We have a booth in a local antique mall - it's called Pumpkin Hollow Antiques, and it's in the village of Bellville, Ohio.  We've started out with a small space, and are going to...

Junk Mail from Candy!

My junk friend, Candy, sent me a package the other day.  When I went on vacation last month, I came across an old (really rusty) test tube holder - and it reminded me of a project that...

Junk Vacation - Part III (final chapter, I promise)...my finds!!

So, here are a few of my vacation junk souvenirs!!! I just love the rustiness of the test tube holder (Candy - we definitely need to do a swap...I need a few more tubes!).  And the "horn shaped"...

Junk Vacation - Part II

OK - here's our second favorite stop...in Eustis, Florida (Lake County) - loaded with thrifting/junking/antiquing treasures galore (here's a website with the "list"...

Junk Vacation - Part I

Well, I'm back from the Sunshine State, and had a great time (the weather was a little cool, but that didn't stop us...).  On the way down, we stopped in a little town in Georgia for a couple...

An "ugly duckling" project!

Here is my "ugly duckling" project...AND, it was really ugly... I bought this at a local thrift store for a huge cost of $1.99!  It appeared to be (at least to me anyway...junker brain and...

Fun photo/card display

We saw these at a friend's shop, and have started making our own versions.  Here's one I did for the upcoming show.  I repainted a small metal lamp base and wired it up (no electrical...

Vintage pincushions

Here are a few of my vintage pincushions - ready to be sold this weekend!  We've sold quite a few of these at our last few shows - they're all unique - using vintage buttons, jewelry, millinery...

Love this bottle!

This old salt shaker was perfect to show off this wedding picture (bought with a bunch of cards, etc. at an estate sale).  I tore the edges and rolled it up to fit inside.  I used the...

A fashionable button bouquet

We're getting ready for our next show - and I had to do a new batch of vintage button bouquets and pincushions.  This is my favorite button bouquet.  I had a pint bottle that was begging to...

The Garden Room - (Part 2)...details, details, details...

So many details in such a small space.  It's such a relaxing room, bright and sunny, with a wonderful view of Ellen's garden in her backyard - On a cold snowy day like today, I can picture Ellen...

We interrupt winter for...Ellen's Garden Room (Part 1)

I think I may have shared this on the old website, but wanted to revisit (it was so much fun to do).  Last March (in the midst of a bit of an ice storm), my friend, Terri, and I were hired by...

I'm done with holiday decorating...

Well, this is it...now it's time to bake some cookies!!! Merry Christmas to all, and may all your junking dreams come true next year!!! Kathy  

A Merry Christmas Conservatory - revisited...

Here's my conservatory full of vintage holiday cheer!   So many great old figurines and a perfect place for them to be for the holidays!  Lots of carolers, and the red bell on the left...

And, a little holiday something for the "powder room" too!!

OK - had to share a glimpse of my "powder room"...

Oh Christmas Tree! Oh Christmas Tree!

I have a "ton" (literally) of vintage ornaments...and have decked the trees... (and still have boxes that haven't been opened - too many???)

A little Christmas bling...

This is in my tv/sewing room...dripping in vintage costume jewelry and a couple sweet little angels keeping an eye on things!  

A vintage Christmas - just a peek...

Just started my Christmas decorating - I'm a little behind this year, but I love "playing" with all this stuff.  And, with all the great ideas from everyone here - my mind is...

Button Bouquet - 101

After my first post showing the button bouquets, a couple members wanted to know how to make them.  Well, on a difficulty scale of 1 to 5 (5 behind the hardest) - it's probably a 2.  These...

Lighting up an old lampshade!

Here's one of my lampshade chandeliers!  An old lampshade stripped down - the top is trimmed with lace from an old pillow case (it fit perfect), and the bottom is tasseled - and of course lots...

Some Christmas Joy - part 2

Another holiday junk collage - joy, joy, joy!!  An old picture frame, scrapbook paper and letters from the craft store (painted and stained to age them)...and bits of junk finish it off!  

Button, button, who's got the button???

I DO!!  And, I'm not wasting any of 'em!!!  Button bouquets for everybody this Christmas!!  (hope they're not looking here for clues) My junk swap partner, LuAnn, sent me some...

Our Day-after-Thanksgiving show!

Here's a glimpse of our "traveling shop" at the Scott Antique Market - held at the Ohio State Fairgrounds in Columbus this past weekend.  It was a huge success and we filled our little "cashier"...

A junky little bit of Christmas cheer - part 1

"Building" a Merry Christmas - one project at a time (more to come...). 

A "renewed" chalkboard

This is a vintage chalkboard that we've repurposed for our sign at fleamarkets/antique shows.  It's a "show stopper" for sure!!!  We want to make sure our customers can find usnbspWe...

Not-too-shabby "cashier" table

When we do fleamarket/antique shows, we’ve always just set our cashier space up on one of our tables that we’re selling and we always end up having to move, rearrange, etc. to keep doing...

No junk at Joan's...treasures galore!!

My friend, Terri, and I headed to Joan's open house early last Saturday...and were surprised to find that it was only about 20 minutes away from our workshop.  We weren't disappointed...

And...A Cozy Guest Room Too!

Here's Ellen's oh so cozy guest room.  She had all the right "stuff" for us to play with to create a space where her guests will probably never want to leave!!! :)  My friend Terri and...

An A-Door-Able Desk & More!

What a way to spend a day...our friend, Ellen, asked us to build a computer area (that didn't look like a computer area), and give her guest room a re-do (pictures in next post...).  The desktop...

China Candlestick

This is a simple creation - a piece of old china attached (glued) to a vintage crystal lamp (that had bad wiring).  It was waiting for it's second life - and I think this is...

Shuttered shelf

Designed by my friend, Terri and I, it's made of small louvered shutters and a couple picture frames for a roof.  Fabric, jewelry, buttons, etc. were used to embellish the roof.  Glass...

A "bottled" centerpiece...

I love bottles, and this is a collection that I made for one of our sales. 

Conservatory - (and the good ol' summertime)

Here's my conservatory - I didn't make this one, a friend did - it's a tabletop version, and I change it in the spring, summer and Christmas - and a couple times in between - it's too much fun coming...

Projects - for the Scott Antique Market

Starting to think about our next show...at the Scott Antique Market (at the Ohio State Fairgrounds in Columbus) - November 29 & 30 (Thanksgiving weekend) - a great "inside" show - yippee no...

FREE Junk!!

Free junk - this stuff is too cool - yardsticks, metal baskets, an old chalk board, and just a bunch of "junk" (I mean "stuff") - but I think there are some treasures in here... A friend is moving...

A squirrely little fall display

I don't do a whole lot of fall decorating (a little on my porch), but did a centerpiece for my dining room.  The cloche was bought new, but the two little guys were rescued from the confines of...

Where there's a window, there's a way (to make something...)!

I got some of these windows from a building renovation downtown years ago - free - and one by one, they've taken on new lives.  My friend, Terri, and I did two of these to take to...

"Beach" Ball

In it's former life, yes, you guessed (or maybe not...) - this was rolling down the lane of a bowling alley (or in my case, probably the gutter) !  I like it much better now! I love the beach...

Jewelry caddy

"What are you gonna do with a broken hall tree?"  Well, that's what my girlfriend asked me...  And, I knew it wasn't lost forever...(actually, I knew what it could be the moment I saw...

Junk Chick!

Too much time on my hands...maybe!  I used a piece of old wood trim and hardware that's been laying around way too long - whipped up a little "hair-do" out of jute and wire (my daughter, the...

Vintage Building Blocks - A-Z

Too much fun with old building blocks - I bought a bunch on Ebay, and have been having fun with them!  I put the  "Live-Laugh-Love" in the original cart and now it's a wall...

Thanks to all of you for your hard work, and for loving our show as much as we do!!! Looking forward to September!

Sherry - hope to see you - let me know when you're headed south (after the snow is gone I'm sure). Sue - I'd love to talk about a casual sale!! Maybe we can talk or get together after the 1st.

Re: Fall Harvest Decor

Ang - your pumpkins are fabulous - don't let one show discourage you too much - it's on to the next!! :)

We've had people take notes, take photos, etc. - without asking, and Terri was almost pushed once so someone could get a pic (so rude). If we see them taking pics without asking, we'll ask them (politely) not to. Fortunately, most people are very respectful - and appreciate the work that a person puts into their craft/art.

Keep up the great work!!

Kathy

Re: AAJMS Back on October 13th, 2010

Wish I could be there. I love this video - and the song (can someone tell me the name of the song/artist??).

It's such a fun event - bringing together a great mix of vendors with art, architecture, antiques and vintage repurposed items.

And, I loved meeting JMS members and blogging friends there too! (The Charitable Event - with early bird shopping was a blast!!)

Stop in if you can - and best wishes to all the vendors for a successful event!

Re: Freeze Frame

Lots of great guesses - I'm stumped - but I like Grasshopper22's guess of the ice cream cart window, or is it that I just love ice cream??? Anyway - such a fun re-use, and Elizabeth is so beautiful. I'm sure you're so proud of your graduate (and, yes, if only we could freeze time...).

AND, clever idea to glue the sawtooth before nailing!

Re: Back to the Beach...

So glad you all enjoyed a visit to my little beach...it's always fun to get my beach junk out - and I try to hold onto the season till the end of September :)

I warned my daughter the bikini might become famous - ha ha, or infamous in junk decor!

Kenda - I've missed being here - but it is turning out to be a super busy summer, and I've missed so many member posts - so, I need to start getting caught up there too - lots of new members and great ideas... Hope all is well with you (a water park sounds like fun)!

Jim - OK - I'm busted...you're probably right - is that a bad thing??? It's called organized hoarding I think ;) (And share?? There's plenty to share a bit...)

Take care - and happy summertime!

Kathy

Re: Playing Outside...

Laurel - I'm a little late checking in - but so glad I didn't miss this. You've put all your "junk" finds together so beautifully. I'm a big fan of what you did with the rusty license plates too, and the settee/bench is way cool (gotta love those springs!!!).

It looks like you're having some big junk fun this summer - miss ya!

Kathy

P.S. Gardening with rust is so much fun, isn't it?? Your flowers/plants look pretty darned happy!!

P.S.S. I'm hoping to get a tour one of these days!

You're having just a bit of fun playing with "new" toys, aren't you??

Kathy

P.S. Alice - have BIG fun in the BIG apple!

Re: To Market, To Market..Burlington Antique Show!

Junquemagnet - You've got some cool things to take to "market"! And, good weather always helps sales!!!

I've been to the Burlington show to buy and sell. It is such a beautiful setting in the rolling hills of Kentucky, and the crowds start coming in early! It is hard to stay in your booth when you're surrounded by so much awesome stuff... My friend and I also sell at Springfield - maybe we'll see you there in May! :)

Good luck this weekend!

Laurel - your stocking hanger aka iron bed frame is a great idea! It looks like you're making the best of a construction zone - great job!!!

Merry Christmas!

Kathy

P.S. I love kids' artwork too (I saved a lot of my daughter's and usually decorate a little tree with her treasures!)

Re: "Just what the Junker ordered"

Looks like you found a fabulous "treasure chest"!! It is amazing what people throw out - and fortunately we're there to pick it up!!! :)

Have fun!

Kathy

Re: Paver snowmen

Very charming little snow/doormen, Marie! What a great use for pavers - and if they're used outside, they're definitely not going to be blown over by the wind!

Thanks for sharing!

Kathy

Re: Gift tags

Marie - these are super sweet. What a clever idea!

Kathy

Re: Santa's shopping cart just arrived!

I love it all too! And your shopping cart (I want that!!!) haha! I was out shopping with a friend last week, and we passed by an antique store with an old shopping cart in the window (very similar to yours - and I wanted it on the spot...), but when I looked a little closer...it had a "sold" tag on it! Some lucky shopper beat me to it - oh well - there's always tomorrow! :)

You've got a great collection - thanks for sharing it with us!

Merry Christmas,

Kathy

Re: Old Letters & Glitter

JUNKMARKET Style has managed to "collect" quite a group of like-minded junkers...(thanks Sue!). And, you know what collections do??? They keep growing - so 2010 is gonna be a blast!!

Merry Christmas to you!!

Kathy

Re: Our First Garden Fountain in 2007

Kathy

(P.S. It's so great when a project can have a part-time job too...haha!)

Re: You can thank Disneyland for this one!

Midge - you amaze me! This one made me smile - your description of how you were inspired, and then the result...I LOVE IT!

I bet your home is just the sweetest little piece of "junk" Disneyland ever!!! (and fyi, visiting your "Disneyland" is on my "to do" list)

Merry Christmas,

Kathy

Re: Announcing "The Best of 2009". With Christmas Quickies...Instead of Cookies

Miss Sue...First, I know you're having a wonderful time...how could you not, right??

Second, I appreciate all you do to keep everything going at JMS...lots to do "behind the scenes"! Also, the members here are the best - the most generous, creative, and fun group of people - and I'm proud to be a part of it all!!!

I'm so excited to see what 2010 brings for JMS, and I'm sure we'll be greeting even more new members than ever!!

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year my friend, and enjoy your well-deserved rest (and lots of warm sunshine...a little jealous up here in Ohio...)!

See you next year!

Kathy

P.S. And, I love that money changer - too much fun to decorate with (gailmarie...we'll have to be on the look-out!!) AND - The wedding sipper is a fabulous idea!

Merry Christmas, Kathy

Re: I'm dreaming of a pink Christmas....

Thanks everybody! I love the pink in this room too - and silver and pink - a perfect combination! The tree is fun, and just an inspiring little corner of the room. My girlfriends love it too!

It is definitely a bit girlie (tiny flowers on the wall), but when we moved into our home, this room had been the daughter's room, and it worked SO well for me - I didn't want to change it. Just added a new border (it had been little bunnies).

Sharon - Go Buckeyes...Rose Bowl bound!! :)

Cocalotta - thanks for your nice comments too!

Merry Christmas!

Kathy

FYI - I got the pink tree at Hobby Lobby...


Re: Christmas Vacation...tree

Jim...you light up our lives...with all your awesome vintage creations!! Your tree is unbelievable - from the pennants (they are "over the top" cool!!), to the pedal car (my hubby would love that...), to the glass insulator to top it all off (clever idea my friend!!).

Where did you find all those pennants??? Everybody is going to want some!!! (Santa??? Are you there???)

Have the merriest Christmas!!

Kathy

Re: How To Make A Santa Snow Globe

Kimberly,

Who doesn't LOVE Santa Claus??? And you've "captured" this one in such a fun way! What a great project for kids (definitely with adult supervision, right??). You've given us great instructions on the "how to" of this project. And, the possibilities for different "subjects" is endless...snowmen, angels, birds, cartoon characters, super heros - (and speaking of super heroes (in our junk world) how about a mini-Sue with a piece of junk in one hand, and Gorilla Glue in the other)... Thought I'd get a laugh from Miss Sue!!! :)

So, in the spirit of the holiday and winter season - I've chosen this as my FAVORITE project by my friend Kimberly!

During our trip to "Minnesnowta" this past summer, Candy and I had the pleasure of meeting some of our JMS contributors and members, and we got to spend some time (not enough though...right Kimberly??) with Kimberly. She and her mother-in-law graciously hosted us on their boat one evening - where we shared lots of laughs, a sunset and a wonderful lakeside dinner. In addition to helping to entertain us, she was also having a garage sale the same weekend - which we of course had to visit and shop a bit! (And, yes...there was some awesome "junk" there!)

It was so much fun getting to know Kimberly and the Minnesota gang... It's a great memory, and a reminder...we have to plan for next year!!!

Looking forward to more of your clever projects - and your great junk style in 2010!

Happy Holidays, Merry Christmas & Happy New Year my friend!

Kathy

Re: VINTAGE TROPHY CUPS

Janis - Your trees deserve a trophy!! First place my dear!!!!

These are just divine!!! And, I'd love two or three...or four! :)

Thanks for sharing (and hoping you'll share your "recipe" for bleaching trees too).

Merry Christmas!

Kathy

Re: A Ho-Ho - Whole lotta Christmas Junk!

Thanks ladies - for all your comments and holiday wishes!

Pulling out my Christmas stuff is always interesting (and a little scary)........somehow my collection grows a little each year (not sure how I do that - must be little elves out shopping and leaving things for me I guess - ha ha!)...

Anyway - I think that little hay unloader will have many happy holidays (and seasons) in its future. And the rusty clock case - too much fun.

Oh, and by the way, the next thing up for auction will be my trusty, rusty test tube holder (sorry, just kidding). It's another great piece with lots of possibilities (this purchase was inspired by my junking friend Candy). And, Alice...your offer is very tempting! :)

Kenda - thanks! I've gotten behind in my reading, but looking forward to catching up in the next day or so.

Take care, Kathy

Re: A peek into our booth at the Scott Antique Market

Thanks All! We always have a blast at this show (even if we had to do a "speed" set up on Friday). The clocks were the star of our space - so, we're looking forward to the January show (with plenty more to sell). We ran out of space, and had boxes of great stuff we couldn't even put out (so...guess we're more than ready for January!).

Midge, LuAnn & Lani (and everybody else - ha ha) - a caravan to Ohio is in order! :) We've got BIG plans for Springfield...and Miss Candy will be with us too! We never know who might show up! (Sharon - hope to see you at Springfield too!)

Well...back to my Christmas decorating... (pics coming soon!).

Take care, Kathy

Re: Santa Delivers with Boyish Charm

Hey Sue - So glad you're able to put the scooter to good use - and what better way than a special delivery on Christmas morning?

Your packaging is perfectly "cardboard chic" - and the ribbon and bell are just the right touch! What lucky kids - I'm sure they never know what to expect from you!! :)

Keep up the happy holiday ideas - we love 'em!!

Kathy

Re: 'Tis the Season

Sue - love your festive red container - and it's so perfect to show off some holiday greenery too...

Miss Lily is probably having big fun in the midst of your holiday decorating - she's such a cutie!! Takes her mind off the tree watching, right?? :)

OK - in my boredom this morning...I "googled" the model number of your container to find out what it was used for(weird, right???)...anyway, the website (Eagle Manufacturing) says: "EAGLE Galvanized Steel Oily Waste Cans offer fire safe temporary storage of solvent, waste rags, shavings and other materials subject to spontaneous combustion." So, I know this will be of tremendous help to you in deciding what to do with it next...(no charge for this service - ha ha).

Well...I'm sure I've been a big help today!! I'm going back to work now!

Kathy

Re: Sweet Reindeer

Gretchen's necklaces work really well for your holiday purposes too... All of your little touches of vintage junk are inspiring (I'm going to be a busy girl with all these ideas spinning around in my head).

Thanks for sharing - your pics are awesome as usual, and your clever ideas have your signature great vintage style!

Kathy

Re: Simple Holiday Wreath

Andrea - your wreath is just divine! I love the colors too...and the "25" is perfect (with a little bling too).

What a fun use for an old purse - and I love that you revived the green tree with a fresh coat of paint - great save!

Good luck with your sale!

Kathy

Re: Blooming junk

Marie - I'm so glad you and your flowers survived the wind too! Yikes 80mph...it's hard to beat junk flowers for sturdiness (and they don't have to be watered)!!!

Love them all - and the fact that they just keep rusting to perfection - way cool! That paint mixer thing is fun - great saves and very fun art!!

Thanks for sharing

Re: Christmas with Georgia

Geo - your shop is SO beautiful - the pink trees add a very festive "pop" to the look, and I like your candlestand "tree" - can I see a close-up of your decorations?? :) Fun...ornaments filled with junk - just the kind of stuff I like!

I really love the neutral bedroom setting! I love the look and the great vintage style!

Why, oh why do I have to be so far away??? I'd love to stop by and shop a bit!

Take care and wishing you BIG sales!!!

kathy

Re: I am TRIPLELY inspired!

Midge, Midge, Midge...what the heck would we do without each other??? Love how you pulled all that inspiration into a wonderful creation of your own!! It's very cool - and fills my little junk heart with J-O-Y!

Thanks for making me smile!

Kathy

Re: Outdoor Christmas Sled

Janie, the sled looks great - and the skates really do add the perfect touch. I've got an old sled that I need to dig out and decorate up a bit - you've reminded/inspired me with your post!

Thanks!

Kathy

Re: My first posted project - cookie cutter tree

Janie - WELCOME!!! And, I'm so glad you've posted your project! (I met Jane this weekend in Columbus - she's so sweet - and a true junker...driving a few hours to get there - on the holiday weekend - that's a junker's determination for sure!!).

I love your tree and especially "with" the strainer! Great job - looking forward to more (and your table....).

Thanks for sharing!

Kathy

Re: Happy Thanksgiving!!!

Re: Drawer # 4 Does Thanksgiving

Sue - I love how you've used drawer #4 (and using them out of order...so totally our Miss Sue!).

I'm sure Elizabeth and her friend enjoyed every little bit of their beverage center (and strawberries too...yummy). I love the tulip bucket - where do you find this stuff?? :)

So well done....!

Thanks for sharing your day!

Kathy

Re: Dear Santa: All I want for Christmas is a Gigantic Pile of Junk

Jim, I love your vintage Christmas junk display (using the train track was ingenius!! - AND the vintage bulbs for pegs - too cool...) - it all goes together so perfectly. And, of course the drawing is special all by itself (and Amy, you're right - a wall full of concept drawings would be awesome.)

I'd also take junk over just about anything for Christmas...well, maybe an Hawaiian vacation might win...! ha ha... And, a Black Friday junk sale - that just sounds heavenly!

Thanks for sharing.

Re: Bringing a Little Bit of the Farm to your Outdoors!

I love the rusty-crustiness of it - a great display!

Take care,

Kathy

Re: Be thankful...

Thanks all for your comments and wishes for the holiday. We spent our Thanksgiving at home with our daughter - the time went wayyy to fast. Hope your holiday was wonderful as well.

We're back from our show in Columbus - it all went great - sold LOTS of clocks - clock update on my blog... www.sylviasdaughter.blogspot.com

The hay unloader really is cool - and now I'll have to figure out how to use it for Christmas! (Geo...you need to come and junk in Ohio - I got it for a mere $10 - however, we might have to search the state for another one - but I think we'd be up to the task!!)

Well...time to get the Christmas tree out - and all that other "junk"! (and get caught up on posts too!)

Kathy



Re: So what do I do with a lot of "tiny" junk?? Maybe a collage or two!

Thanks all for your comments!

Jenny - When I was doing the fork collage, I was going to add more, but thought it was sweet the way it was (I do tend to fuss a lot when I'm putting one together - so this was an accomplishment for me) - ha ha!

Candy - hoping to see you on Friday too!! Have big fun with your family!!!

Makinithappen - With all that great stuff, you'll come up with something awesome I'm sure!

Alice - Vitamins...ok - got 'em!! :)

Re: Something to sing about

Midge - such a cute idea. And, I love your idea of painting the laminate samples...I've got some of those - and you're right, they'd probably be so happy being painted and becoming a functional piece of decoration!

Re: So what do I do with a lot of "tiny" junk?? Maybe a collage or two!

Thanks everybody! More fun projects - and I know there are a "few" of us who definitely have lots of "little" things - whether they're leftovers from other projects, things laying in a "junk drawer", or just things collected "for a rainy day" - or maybe a cold winter's day...waiting for just the right box (some of these were old cheese boxes) -- or some other container (I've got some empty clock cases I'm thinking of using next time around...)

The little ironstone tea set is my fav!

Just a couple more days until our show - so, time to pack it up! Hope you all have a great Thanksgiving!

Kathy

Re: Curbside score, now what?

I love your curbside chairs just like they are - chippy paint is a good thing!! :) I have just a "few" little chairs around my house (one of my weaknesses...) - sitting up on a table or bench, or just sitting pretty here and there in a corner...and always holding a little something!

I like all the ideas, and one other - you could even hang them on the wall as a shelf... My girlfriend has one hanging on her fence and sits a plant on it.

Enjoy your finds!

Thanks all for your comments - and understanding (so well...) the obsessions I/we have with all different kinds of "junk". I'm in such great company!!!

The dresser mirror is one of my favorite things - I think I need to hang it on the wall...but that might be a scary view...16 of me - yikes! :) (I collect enough myself - just think what 15 more of me could do...)

Robert - perfectly clean isn't always a priority - I love my "swiffer" duster! :)

gailmarie - the wire thing is a giant flower frog - I haven't figured out what to do with it yet!

Candy - I do have a few extra buttons I could share with a friend...

Take care, Kathy

And - Joanne - "Hi, my name is Kathy.........." ;)

Re: "Emerging from the JunkYard" and Designing for a Cause

Marybeth - what an awesome job you did - and such a well deserved award too! You get a bit WHOOP WHOOP from Ohio!! :)

I love the colors scheme you chose, and all the great pieces you repurposed - the workbench is super cool, and I love the transformation that a simple paint job made on your chairs. You brought them up-to-date and they fit in "just right"! :) Using the rubber mat for a stencil was oh so clever, and then hanging it on the wall - a double duty beauty for sure!!

Love it all! Congrats!

Kathy

Re: In love with old metal

The music sheets are so perfect as placemats (they could even be laminated or maybe decoupaged to be reused...). I also love the old light fixture as a bud vase, the doorknobs, etc., etc.... I'm sure your friends had a fabulous time - and had lots of junk to talk about!!

Take care, Kathy

I would decorate a Christmas tree with the flour scoops for a porch display...how cool would that be? Hope to see pics!

Re: Edible Centerpiece

Sue - your salad is so yummy looking! And love the gear mold...that's very cool! And, I'm thinking that the jump rope can double as decoration AND after meal exercise too!

It really is a bummer that it's already snowing for you in MN...that means it will eventually end up in Ohio too. (Junking down south for the winter would be a good thing!!)

Kathy

Re: First one door...then two!

Great idea Marie - You are doing some great things with your room! A labor of junk love, I'm sure!!! :)

Kathy

Re: FINALLY!! Organized - sort of...

Marie (first - love your new pic...well I think it's new, right or have I not been paying attention???)

And, second...you get an A++++++++++++++ for your organizing dream of a workroom - WOW! The lockers are simply amazing - oh how I would love some of those! And, from the looks of your many machines...you ARE a sewing machine. Your seat cover on your chair (with your name) is super cute. What a fun and very happy place!!! (and yes, thank goodness for sports channels!)

It looks like such an inspiring and relaxing place for you! Thanks for letting us take a peek!

Kathy

Re: i'll never do this again:)!

You did a fantastic job on the skirt - and endured the pain too - congrats! I've done projects (using wire, broken china, etc...) that have wore out my hands - but the end results are worth it (just not something I'd do every day!!).

Your end result is very clever and so cool!

Re: RC Cola Cooler Turns Over a New Leaf

Geo...LOVE your potting "party" station! So multifunctional, with just the right touch of rusty-crusty coolness! I like the hooks and handles you added to hold tools, etc. (and it looks like it's on wheels too?? perfect!)

Good luck at your sale and take care!

Kathy

Re: Climbing my Chippy Ladder to Success!

Lani - I love it and all its fabulous chippy-ness!! What a great display.

Nice job my friend!!

Kathy

Re: UPSIDE DOWN HANGING LAMP

grannijo, Love your version!! You did a great job repurposing your light fixture (and great price too!) - it's too funny, but I have a light fixture sitting on my workbench waiting for the perfect piece to top it off (it's brass and really needs to be painted) - the inspiration just keeps going round and round!! :)

Kathy

Kathy

Re: Springfield Extravaganza - some of our stuff...Part III

OK - I guess I'll "have" to start scheduling at least a small get-together for sure!

1. Candy is scheduled to be our next door neighbor - her first time as a vendor at Springfield - I'm SO excited!! (And, Candy - hope to see you at Scott's...let's talk!)

2. LuAnn - Springfield Extravaganza will be the 3rd weekend of May...

3. Lani - we may need to get some rooms reserved!

4. Jim - it's closer than Minnesota...does that help? :)

5. Suewannabeinkc - yep - we're in Ohio - here's the website: http://www.springfieldantiqueshow.com/

6. I better start putting together a mailing list - and we can start thinking about our little Buckeye JUNK party!

And thanks all for your nice comments about our projects - I've started to work on some new "junk" for our November show (it really never ends...thank goodness!!)

Kathy

P.S. Janis - Terri has collaged for a while, and I just started (I made three new ones over the weekend) - they're so much fun.

Re: Organ Pipe Photo Holders

OK - I know you're shopping at some secret junk hideaway somewhere in the woods of Minnesota - where the heck do ya find stuff like that?? ha ha!! Those are so COOL! And, of course - I love what you did with them (and tie clips to hold the photos...sweet!!!)

Happy Monday to you! And thanks for sharing!!!

Kathy

P.S. Great photos Mom!!! :)

Re: New life for old objects

Great pics! Love the old baby shoes hung in the frame. And I love anything "beachy" - a unique way to display!

Thanks for sharing.

Kathy

Re: Springfield Extravaganza - some of our stuff...Part III

Thanks ladies! Midge - glad you've got your calendar marked - looking forward to your visit! Maybe we'll have to have a bit of a "junk potluck"!

Kim - I bought this old paperweight (empty) at an estate sale - and added the buttons, cut a circle out of a piece of a vinyl wallcovering sample that I got from work, and glued it to the bottom. The paperweights are cool because they magnify the contents. Gretchen gave me the idea of using them and I decided to do buttons in this one - I think she had done some for an occasional sale. Hoping to find more...

Kathy

Re: Springfield Extravaganza - some of our stuff...Part III

Thanks! We have too much fun (if that's possible) with all of our "stuff"!

My fingers are crossed too - hoping for a caravan of members at Springfield in the spring! :) We'll be at the Scott Antique Show in Columbus, Ohio on Thanksgiving weekend - if anyone's nearby!

Hope you're having a great weekend - leaving now to check out a couple garage sales (the season is winding down...darn...!).

Kathy

Check out my blog for more pictures: www.sylviasdaughter.blogspot.com

Re: Springfield Extravaganza - Part II - so much to see and so little time!

Thanks everybody - for coming along to Springfield! I think I could just travel the countryside - reporting from show to show...how cool would that be (and be able to buy a little along the way as well).

First...I agree - the clown is a little creepy (the more I look at him, the more he reminds me of that clown in the Stephen King movie..."It"). But he was unique!!! (thank goodness!)

Janis - as far as prices - this show runs from garage sale finds to fine antiques - but our prices in Ohio (and surrounding states) are definitely lower than other parts of the country (so, it's definitely worth a trip for collectors or people looking to re-sell). And, thanks for the info on the shoe scraper - I can see that...

gailmarie & Jim - the green cabinet was in a friend's booth - I admired it from afar! And, I didn't buy any of the globes, but wish I would have. Sue will be checking in here - so, she'll hear about her twin! :)

Karen - you're welcome - it's always great to see new members with new ideas to share - looking forward to more of your posts!

Anita - hope to see you there next year - the list of Buckeye Junkers is growing! ...and Candy - I'm working on it - the more the merrier!! ;)

...there's one more post to go!

Kathy

P.S. Thanks for the comments about my pic - it was time for a change - my friend said I needed to get rid of the bib overalls - I don't know...I kind of liked them!

Re: Serving up a "light" snack - vintage junk-style!

gailmarie, Joanne & snowyowl...thanks for your comments. I just have too much fun with all this "junk" - but can you really have to much junk fun?? I don't think so! :)

Please check out Laurel's version of the serving dish - actually a few of them - they're awesome! http://www.junkmarketstyle.com/item/16387/de-light-ful-serving-piecesinspired-by-shabby-chick

snowyowl - hoping to see pics of your projects too!

Take care, Kathy

Re: De-Light-ful Serving Pieces...Inspired by Shabby Chick...

Laurel - you really did those serving dishes up right (and I bet the treats WERE tasty as well)! I'm sure you got lots of compliments from your friends too.

My favorite is the one on the silver base - but, they're all so sweet! I love how we inspire each other and then come up with creations that show our own style.

Very nice job! Thanks for sharing!

Kathy

P.S. Now...I want to have a party!!

Re: Miniature US License Plate Map by Design Turnpike

Karen,

Beautiful fall display - I love vintage mirrors - they can be used in so many different ways.

Welcome to JUNKMARKET Style!

Kathy

Re: "FALL"ing for the Springfield Extravaganza - Part I...

Thanks Sue & Gretchen! I know I'm gonna be dragging you all out here one of these days!!!

Gretchen - we have definitely made the transition into more neutral tones, and more silver/metal pieces - and everybody's liking it (and buying it). It seems like a more aged look - and can fit in with any color someone decorates with.

Sue - just call me "pics-r-us" - I've definitely got 'em!! :)

Take care, Kathy

Re: Candle stick flowers

These are wonderful - great save on the candleholders - and so clever how you've repurposed them!

Re: CHICCOTTAGEJUNK PROJECT

Janis - I LOVE THESE! A great way to make the bottles a little sturdier and add a bit more "vintage" to the look.

And of course...you are the queen of jewels & ribbon!! And you wear your crown so well!! :)

Will have to check out chiccottagejunk - thanks!

Kathy

Re: "FALL"ing for the Springfield Extravaganza - Part I...

Thanks all! It was a great weekend, and we had fun setting up our space (except for the late night - had to use a floodlight from one of our "neighbors" so we could finish! We really should have just slept in our truck (it was almost midnight when we finished!).

Sharon - hope to see you there next year (and lots of others too)!

Alice - I checked your blog - love the angels! :)

Candy, ol buddy ol pal - we definitely need to talk!!

texasjunkermom - I'm not sure about the cloche... I looked at some on ebay (great place to get an idea on prices - saw an antique one (16" tall) starting to bid at $49 - and $20 for shipping...) so that price might be a little high if it's a new one??? - anybody else know??

Lani - I'm sure if the Grizzly would have gone shopping - he'd get be able to deal on some great prices!! And be able to carry heavy furniture too...a junk hunk!! :) (Lani - I'm all for a get-together!!)

Janis - thanks about the pic - I thought I needed something new - it may change again - not sure...haha!

Have a great week!! (and stay tuned for Part II)

Kathy

Kathy

Re: You Can't Take the Fancy Out of Fancy...

Challenge #1,325 or so it feels like, right?? They just keep coming and you keep pulling another awesome project out of your "challenge" hat!!

Your vintage frame is very cool - and I love your choice of paint color too. The door knobs really finish it off!

Keep up the good work! And good luck in Philly!

Kathy

Re: My Simple Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday or Friday Project!

OK Lani dear...your "simple" tables and their style are over the top cool!! Not sure which is my favorite - oh heck...I think I love them all the same!

The little table rise is super cute! And, what a great repurpose for that chandelier - it makes an awesome table! And, yes the chimney cap is probably the icing on your simple project "cake"!!!

Loving it all, my friend!

Kathy

Re: Old Glory Miniature License Plate Art by Design Turnpike

Re: Serving up a "light" snack - vintage junk-style!

Sharon...would love to have an Ohio event...! I know there are a lot of Buckeye Junkers out there...and surrounding states too...right Midge, LuAnn??? Others?

It's definitely a great way to make new junking friends, and meeting in person is just way too much fun!!

Kathy

Re: Serving up a "light" snack - vintage junk-style!

OK...you're all gonna make me blush! :) Thanks for your comments - ya just gotta love those super simple projects that put on a great show AND have a purpose in their new life as well!!

The junk potluck was a huge success (and so was the blog party) - thanks and congrats to Amy & Co. for all their hard work! And thanks for bringing us all together - everytime I look at the pics...there's a new memory...

Just a note...In your search for lamp bases, be sure to pick something that will hold up to the weight of your light fixture - you don't want it to be top heavy. These two pieces were surprisingly well balanced in weight and size. And, if a finial won't hold it together...I bet a little Gorilla Glue would do the trick, and then place something decorative over the hole to cover it up.

Take care, Kathy

Thanks for sharing!

Kathy

Re: Freeby :-)

My vote is coming in late, but I also vote for painting (and distressing). And, I think a marriage of pieces would make it spectacular.

I could also picture it as a potting table (with a window and some architectural pieces attached for shelving...) - and the drawers would provide great storage for tools, pots, etc... One of the large drawers could be pulled out and the space used as a shelf - to display pots, garden junk, etc...

Or, a drawer or two could be pulled out (for components to fit in), and it could be used as an entertainment center.

OK - stopping now - let us know what you come up with - can't wait to see pics!

Kathy

P.S. Don't ya just love "free"? :)

Re: simple monday fix to unfinished project ;)

Geo...I say go into mass production honey!! - ha ha!!! :) I think people will love them! (we actually did three different sizes today) (and I also thought they'd look cool hung from chains in a grouping - maybe with a big crystal hanging in the middle of them...?????)

LuAnn - you're right - so much for Tupperware... :)

Jan - can't wait to see your cloche!

Midge - I'm going to do a post on my blog - so will let you know and you can see the finished chandelier.

Thanks again everyone! Happy Junking!

Kathy

Re: I Don't Know Why This Caged Bird Would Sing....

Midge, Midge, Midge - I hope to visit and sample some of your "junk food" one of these days - it looks like you know how to throw a meal together (literally...out of the back of your van - gotta love that)!!

You've got some great stuff there - the typewriter (ala chocolate)...how perfect! And your caged chicken is way too funny!

Way to go!!!

Kathy

P.S. Maybe we'll all meet up in Oronoco next year! :)

Re: On the Streets of London Town . . .

Thanks for sharing!

Re: Views from the 127 Corridor Sale

Thanks for the peek of the Longest Yard Sale - the old VW van is too much fun! I went 4 years ago with three of my girlfriends - we had a great time, and filled a trailer!

Can't wait to see what you create with your finds!

Kathy

Re: So much junk, so much to say, SO LITTLE TIME!

Midge! So glad things went well for you -lots of great advice here for sure - and when you love what you're talking about...that makes it all so natural!

Keep up the good work!! You're a great voice for us junkers!

:)

The bottle tree is fun! I would love to visit Tybee Island. I have a book with photos of cottages - and the ones there look so cute and have been refurbished.

Thanks for sharing!

Kathy

Re: Old windows and doors

What awesome windows you found - you've gotten lots of great ideas from everyone - I like the room divider idea - they could be hinged (taken apart easily or more added on if needed).

Whatever you decide to do - please share pics with us!

Take care, Kathy

Re: wood mosaic tabletop

I love how this tabletop was pieced together - the colors are awesome!

Very nice work! Thanks for sharing!

Thanks for sharing.

Kathy

Re: should I paint it pink?

That is so cool - I've never seen one before. I also like it in it's natural state (the rusty green)...but if the color doesn't go with your look, then I agree with RustyDiva...paint it! :)

Would love to see a pic of it when you're done with it.

Thanks for sharing!

Kathy

Re: Simple Mondays

Sue - Simply natural elegance - nice display.

And, I also love the idea of simple Mondays - since it's noon, and I'm still not quite awake yet... :) (guess I was working in the basement too late last night on a couple projects...).

Kathy

Re: A TP Holder

Sue - well, well, well...toilet paper never look so good! Who knew a fixture in the bathroom could provide so much entertainment?!?

You've accomplished another challenge in fine form my dear! (Jim, I know you were "bracing" yourself for what she might come up with...)

Can't wait to see how you "flush" out the next challenge! :)

Kathy





Re: JMS Post from the Past - "I'm Going All the Way to the Top!"

Lani - You totally did this forgotten piece justice and it looks so happy in its new home! Such a clever and entertaining use for it!

(Be sure to watch out...the Pfarkel sisters' camper may be pulling up in the middle of the night to steal it away!) ;)

And, great job with the power tools!

Love it! Kathy

Re: A few of my favorite things - from Oronoco with LOVE!!

Kathy

Re: Vintage Redesign Jewlery Designer Scours Oronoco Flea Market for Treasures

Gretchen...

You definitely found some buried treasures! And, I know your creations will be unbelievable. It was so much fun to visit the French Flea and see your designs in real life!

I'll be keeping my eyes open for some more goodies for you too (and thanks for the bag of leftovers...I'll take them anytime!)

Love ya, Kathy

Re: A few of my favorite things - from Oronoco with LOVE!!

Thanks for all your comments - Oronoco was amazing - and will hopefully be an annual trip for us!

We did all come across some great junk... Candy and I will have to bring a truck next time (oh yeah...we'll need that to pull the Airstream!).

About the gas sign...it brought back "vague" memories of gas wars (I must have been really young!! ;)

Sue and the little pink dress...they were MFEO! Just too cute!

Midge - watch out...we're coming to your storage unit next!!

Hey dragnfli! Love your pic - and I wish I would have bought one of those linoleum pieces for you...guess there's a project in our future! (and keep your calendar open - you're coming along with us next year!)

Kari - you covered some serious ground on Friday...whew......bet you got lots of great junk!

Gretchen - I feel like we only saw about half the show...guess we'll have to move a little faster next time (or get there earlier - ha ha).

Sue Sullivan - we'll definitely meet up at Springfield - our spaces are 828 and 851 (will send you a map).

Lani - there was at least as much laughter as there was junk - such great memories! :) And, you know Candy and I will be back!

Amy - your space was fabulous - not to mention the music, great food, etc... Glad to share some pics - you were a busy bee!!!

Well, I'm going to be busy working on my next post...and showing off my "finds"...(sorting through a few hundred pictures...).

Take care,

Kathy

Kathy

Re: Pick Another Daisy

Well...my favs...the daisies, the jewelry and the candles...it's all too cool though - how about a mix of candies...M&Ms, Hershey kisses, etc., etc....or bowls of buttons, or sprinkles/toppings for ice cream cones/sundaes??? A million and one uses!

Great little project there Miss Sue!! :)

Kathy

Re: Once Upon a Time in Texas.....

OH MY GOSH! That is a dream...to just be able to walk in and scoop up every little bit of junk you can find!!! (I seriously have dreams like that - your real life find is so cool.)

You've got some great stuff to play with - can't wait to see what you create!

Thanks for letting us in on your fairy tale finds! :)

Kathy

Re: Breadbox Beautifies Bath By Banishing Beauty Bottles!

Oh wow!!! Your garden tea house is amazing - what a great friend to let you in on some awesome salvage materials!

What a dreamy setting - kick off your shoes and relax! I'd love to have a little get-away in my yard too (I'm dreaming of a cute little vintage camper...).

Great job! Thanks for sharing.

Kathy

Re: Oronoco Stories...what happened in Oronoco stays...

P.S. The whole camping experience couldn't have been any more perfect...Thanks!!! (and hugs all around...) :)

Re: Oronoco Stories...what happened in Oronoco stays...

Well, all I can say is - and being very truthful...THE PFARKEL SISTERS SAVED OUR SORRY CAMPER BEHINDS - seriously! (I guess you could say we were just a tad "high maintenance" being the "experienced" campers we are...ha ha). I really think we had just one thing on our minds when we set out that morning (a bit behind our anticipated 7:00am departure time...wink wink) - and it was nothing but JUNKING! But - at least we remembered the tent and sleeping bags!

Setting up the tent was big fun - and I believe there is a photo circulating (thanks to our dear "tweet" Candy) that refers to how many JMS girls, Pfarkel sisters AND Tomboy Tool gal does it take to set up a tent? You don't want to know...

The Pfarkels are amazing - SO much fun...and we even got a peek inside the big camper - love the flamingos ladies!!

Note to my fellow JMS contributors...Next year we'll be alongside the Pfarkels in our "Airstream"! :)

Hugs from Ohio! Kathy


Re: My Picks from Oronoco

jakiparrot - I've visited the Renninger's Antique Extravaganza in Mt. Dora (very cool/quaint little town) - and they have monthly shows, but the Extravaganzas are in February and November - over 1000 vendors. It's an awesome show!

Here's the link to the site: http://www.renningers.com/dora/dorahome.htm

I'm sure there are others as well.

Kathy

Re: 650 Mile Garage Sales Pictures

Looks like huge fun - I know it seems to go on forever down there - a junker's dream!

And it's so cool that you showed off Junkmarketstyle - the more the merrier!! :) (I think I'll hang a sign at my space in September too!).

Thanks for sharing, Kathy

Re: Michigan Yard Sale Trail

Great stuff LuAnn - and the view is so beautiful. Hoping to make it up that way some time!!

Thanks for sharing!

Kathy

Re: GIFT

So sweet - what a nice gift and Makayla is too cute!! :)

Kathy

Re: My Picks from Oronoco

Ah.....such sweet stuff!!! And you've definitely got the eye for finding it! Candy and I were so excited about being part of the fun - and we were not disappointed!!! (a little sleep deprived maybe...but oh well - there was definitely not a minute wasted!).

I loved those light fixtures too - I think it would look so cool out on a porch or patio (or an entry, etc., etc...)...what great lighting!!

And the gas pump front...well - I bet we see more of those photo opps (or oops!)!

You're right, it is definitely an awesome thing to see young junkers out there buying AND selling...great junk never grows old! (That doesn't mean we're considered old junkers does it??? I didn't think so!)

Thanks for sharing the pics Sue... We're looking forward to another camping trip (maybe Candy can "borrow" the Airstream!)...

Hugs, Kathy

Re: Vintage Treasures Market

There's our girls! Great pic!

Kathy

Re: Pre-Oronoco Gold Rush Estate Sale

Way to go, Kathy

Re: Beautiful glass lids and bowls...

This is such a great use of those random lids - very sweet (and love the apron!)

Kathy

Re: "The Twelve Best"

Wonderful (I don't know what else to say...). I love the patina, the color, the new function and life you brought to the piece (ok...so I thought of a a little something to say!)

Love it!

Kathy

Ingenious and sooo functional!

Thanks for sharing! Kathy

Re: canadian ranch/farmhouse items

You've got some great stuff - and have used it well!

What a perfect re-use of the kiddie pools (no one will ever know!) ;) It looks so natural! (and...love the bathtub garden too!!)

Thanks for sharing! Kathy

Re: old canadian airforce foot locker

What an awesome bench - and of course the color is just the best shade of chippy blue! It looks perfectly at home!

Welcome to JUNKMARKET Style and looking forward to more of our posts!

Kathy

Re: A Junker's Nuts and Bolts Bin

Sue - I LOVE THIS! What a cool find, and SOOOO functional!

You rescued it from a lonely, dusty life in an antique store...guess it was tucked away just waiting for you!

Great job!

Kathy

Re: The Five Feet Table

Jenny - high "fives" all around on this table!!! It's so much fun - and unbelievably creative - who would have thought...?(just like Janis said)- JennyK!


Thanks for sharing! Kathy

Re: Girls' night at the workshop...it's nothing but fun!!!

Thanks everybody for your nice comments - sounds like we all should get together for one big junk weekend (sounds good Laurel)! It could be a "BYOJ" (bring your own junk...ha ha!!) event! Hmmmm...

My friends and I have a blast - on our trips, project nights, and a lot more! The four of us have been friends for almost 30 years (since our kids were born) - so, it is definitely a blessing to have them to share all kinds of "junk" with!!

Alice - there is definitely always some kind of food involved! :) (and almost always chocolate - haha!)

Lani...ya never know (Sue's got lots to share!! - wink wink!)

Thanks again - hope to see a few wreaths posted soon!

Take care, Kathy

Re: A Shakespearean moment

You did that little bare spot up proud - in fab junking style!! (And shopping at home...way to keep the budget down too!)

The wire cloche is very cool. I've got one that I made (will post soon).

Thanks for sharing with us!

Kathy

Re: Is anyone going to the 650 mile garage sale this week?

Have fun buying and selling everybody. My friends and I went four years ago, and loaded a trailer full of great finds! It was our best girl trip ever! We drove south into to Tennessee a day early, spent the night, and then headed north for three days.

We hope to go back next year for our "five year reunion" of the World's Longest Yard Sale! :)

Can't wait to see pics!!

Kathy

Lots of great stuff - I like your picture frames (yardsticks) - cute!

Glad you did well!

Kathy

Re: What to get for the junker who has (almost) everything??? It's a "challenge" that's for sure!

Lani & Janis - this is even more fun than I thought! Junk is just fun anyway - and sharing it is a hoot!! (seems like Sue thinks so too...so far!)

Janis - you may visit and play in the basement anytime...I won't even bother to clean it up...! :)

Lani - I'm narrowing my junk pile down for Sue...(we've got a little bit of camping gear to bring too!)

Take care! Kathy

Re: A challenge -- Trash to Treasure Charity Auction

I will be at Amy's blog party (at Oronoco Gold Rush Days) - and would love to donate my piece that I made for the "junk" potluck!

See you there! Kathy

Re: Chalk Liner Wreath

Sue - this is awesome - looks beautiful hanging on your door! (and good idea on the "illusion" of hanging)

What a great gift from Miss Georgia!

Love the re-use of the panty hose...!!

Kathy

P.S. I have a feeling that any "thank-you" cards we receive (for these awesome gifts) - will be accompanied by a challenge befitting these acts of "generosity"!



Re: Sneak Peek and Guess Your Best

I guess I could go with Jim's hint and say I bet it's one of those thingies that puts lines down on a football field (or some kind of field...) - but just for fun - let's say it's a hand-operated snow making machine...(And you know you could use one of those in Minne-snowta!!)

Anyway...Sue - you've got some great stuff to work with - and the umbrella may be a challenge - so, if you need help - we'll be there next week for some brainstorming! :)

See ya, Kathy

Re: ROCK-A-BYE BABY!!

Janis - what a sweet little flower bed you created! Can't wait to see it in full bloom!

Love it!

Kathy

P.S. How did your sale go???

Re: Junkin' is the "SPICE" of life!

Like everybody else said...clever, cute (or like alice said...gosh darn cute - I love that!! :) - and you put it all together so well - great job!

Such a unique chalkboard!

Thanks for sharing with us.

Kathy

Re: What to get for the junker who has (almost) everything??? It's a "challenge" that's for sure!

Fjerda - great idea!! Will tuck a little something into a corner! :) (Will check your blog, and post a link on mine.)

See you there!

Kathy

Re: Desk with Chalkboard Top

This is the greatest idea!!! Lots of space for little ones' imagination - AND easy clean-up too!

Way to go!

Kathy

Re: Yard Sale is all done Up JM Style...The Details

I bet the junk is flying out of your yard about now!!! :)

(Making room for lots more!!)

Kathy

Re: Circuit Breaker Box Clock

Jenny - Oh man...not a "shock" to me - or anyone else I'm sure...it's another AWESOME clock - love the bit of rustiness & vintagey green - and the pieces and parts you put together!

And, when you want to lose track of time -just shut the door! Sweet!!!!

Kathy

Re: Any Ideas ?? I'm stumped!

Suzie7 - first...welcome to JUNKMARKET Style! You'll find lots of ideas here for sure...our junker brains don't ever seem to rest! :)

Second...what an awesome piece of furniture. For placement, it looks like it could sit on the floor, hang on the wall, or maybe sit up on a cabinet or table (like a small farmhouse table...).

As far as what to put in it...like others have said it could be functional - in the kitchen or a craft area (that's where it would be in my house...ha ha) to organize. And, like audlyenuf said - boxes or baskets with labels or tags so you don't forget what you've organized - for me, if it's out of sight...it's definitely out of mind.

I think a mix of a collection of things would be cool - seashells, bottles, and just random old stuff - not necessarily in every cubby - that would keep it to a less cluttered look.

It'd be great in a child's room too - they'd have lots of "little things" to stow away. And, how cool would it be in an entry??? Anyway, I got a little carried away - it IS just such an awesome piece! Hoping to see pics of what you do with it!!

Kathy

Re: CAN YOU FIND THE LIGHTSWITCH?????

Re: What to get for the junker who has (almost) everything??? It's a "challenge" that's for sure!

gailmarie - Can't wait to see what you make with the strainer (I have the stand and the wooden thingie that goes with it...) - hope you didn't get "junk overload" looking at all my stuff... :)

Kenda - you're definitely not the only one with lots of junk (it makes me feel better to know I'm not the only one too!!).

Sue - I knew you couldn't keep your eyes off this post...! You only have to wait two more weeks (from today)! :)

LadyCatherine (love your name!) - What a great story about your typewriter - thanks for sharing.

Fjerda - Are you going to be at Oronoco? I might be able to bring a little something for the auction(if we have room in the van)...

Take care all! And thanks for sharing in the fun!

Kathy

Re: A good junk find

Alice...great finds! I love the red can caddy - that'll be fun to use! And metal stools are one of my favorite things!

gailmarie- I know what you mean - I went to a sale last week that was advertised as a neighborhood sale (and you know how excited we get when we see those kinds of sales - LOL)...well, the neighborhood must have put all their stuff at one house - that's all there was! But fortunately...there is enough good junk out there...that a little misadvertisement doesn't stop us, does it??? On to the next sale...and the next...! :)

Thanks for sharing, Alice!!

Kathy

Re: What to get for the junker who has (almost) everything??? It's a "challenge" that's for sure!

Thanks you guys! Making the appropopriate "selections" is proving to be a real challenge for me...too much to pick from??...I think that would be a "yes"! But, I've got a couple things in a box (Candy, I promise we won't have to strap anything to the top of your van!!!).

And, Candy...way too funny - I see lots of laughing going on during our road trip (hope we don't miss any exits...).

Jim...the round thing would make a great lamp!! - and if anyone could do it...well - I don't need to say who that might be! :)

alicemom - Terri and I will be at the Springfield Extravaganza in September - but I probably won't be having another garage sale till next year.

Kimberly - I really need to learn to part with more of my junk (or get really busy and work on my projects...yep - that would be the best choice - time to get to work/play! :)

Kathy

P.S. For more of my thoughts on Sue's challenge - you can check out my blog... www.sylviasdaughter.blogspot.com - some clues...oh yeah! :)

Re: Yard Sale is all done Up JM Style...The Details

Sue...it looks like you'll be making room for lots more great junk, right?? (oh, yeah..and for some guests as well??!)

I love all your individual "departments" - I did the same thing at my garage sale (I didn't have "quite" as much cool junk as you, but did the best with the junk that I had - ha ha) - and people came in and made comments about how they felt like they were walking into a store - just can't stop, can we??)

Wishing you lots of junk success!!!

Kathy

P.S. Candy and I will have to check out any "leftovers"! :)

Re: Recycled Window

Cheryl - we're going to have a blast meeting everyone AND hopefully a lot of JunkMarket Style members...Also, can't wait to see the demo - I want some pink tools!!

Amy - I know you're going to be the perfect hostess!!

Amy's got details on her blog...www.junkologie.blogspot.com

Kathy

P.S. Can't wait for the junk potluck! :)

Re: Doesn't Matter if it's Black or White . . . .

Miss Lani...everything is so perfect in black and white - and like I said on your blog...the age and character of the accessories make it such a soothing combination! And a great setting to pop in a little color here and there if you want to too...

I love the motel chairs - your "married" hutch, and who doesn't love some polka dots?

Beautiful my friend!

Kathy

Re: My First Entry...Shabby Roses and Pedestal Plates

Welcome to JunkMarket Style - so glad you've joined in!

I love the paper pattern roses - they are so sweet! And like Candy said, I can see them at a bridal shower or reception.

Your vintage pedestals are nice and so versatile.

Thanks for sharing - looking forward to more posts from you.

Kathy

Re: Projects from the Pages of a Book

Well...Sue! This is all just sweeter than Candy...! :)

I love the luggage tags (it's a name tag AND a napkin ring - very fashioinably cool), the vase (reminds me of my Doris Day carafe), and the cartoon "wrapping" paper...it's ALL just fun!

Books can definitely provide some great material to work with. All of your projects are just so clever - and of course the dialogue and photos are too entertaining!

You've done it again!

Re: Sometimes it's ok to break a dish (or two)...

Stellaluna,

Here are some thoughts (I'm sure others have some tips too - please share!!! We can all use a little help from our friends!!)

Breaking: I put my plate, tile, etc.. in a box wrapped in a towel (so, in breaking, pieces don’t fly…). (And, check it each time you hit it - to maybe pull out pieces that are the size you want...). If you want the piece/design to stay intact, (before breaking) I’d cover the back side with masking or duct tape to hold the pieces together, so you’re not trying to figure out what goes where…(or even take a picture of it before breaking). (Be sure to wear safety glasses when breaking and/or using tile snips.)

Some basic supplies:

Gloves (use when breaking glass)
Safety glasses (use when breaking glass)
Hammer
-Tile snips (for plates or tile) (can be used to cut in more uniform pieces – try this on a practice piece to see how it works. I cover the piece with a cloth while I'm cutting it.)
-Tile adhesive (to put the pieces in place prior to grouting)
-Tile grout (sanded) (this can also be used as the adhesive instead of tile adhesive)
-Grout sealant (optional)
-File (to file down sharp edges – if necessary)

Tips:

You can lay your pieces out on the tabletop (or whatever surface you choose), and use the grout and/or adhesive to stick pieces in place…allow to dry, and then start filling spaces with grout.

After applying grout, be sure to wipe tile/pieces with a damp cloth before grout dries on surface (follow directions on container).

If you’re doing a bowling ball – be sure to clean the surface well (to get rid of oil from the bowling alley – if it was in the gutter a lot – like mine is...there will be more oil on the surface - haha) – I use soap and water, and then rubbing alcohol - you could even sand it a bit.

To work on it, I place it on a stand of some sort (I have a metal candle stand that I use - for a large candle.) – this will help hold it in place. I also put a towel over the stand (provides a bit of a cushion for it to rest on – it helps protect the pieces that you’ve already adhered to the surface as you turn it.). Allow an area to dry well (I let mine sit overnight) – and then you can move it to begin on a new area. This process takes a few days – if you move it too soon, pieces will slide and/or fall off. (Again, be sure to clean the grout off the surface of your tiles with a damp cloth after its “set up” a bit.)

Good luck with your mosaic - hope to see it in a future post!

Kathy

Re: Sometimes it's ok to break a dish (or two)...

Thanks for your comments!

Jim - if you send broken plates, no need to mark the package "fragile" - the damage has already been done, right? :)

Janis...I wish you were going to be there too!!! We'll work it out one of these days (promise!!)

Thanks LuAnn - I'm thrilled to be a part of this very talented group!

Gretchen - I'm looking forward to seeing your "beach" ball!!

Take care all!

Kathy

Re: Editor's Challenge

See Sue - there's nothing to be nervous about, because of all the people I know - I'm positive that you're up to about any junk challenge thrown at you (don't take that literally)... I just know everyone will be ever so kind and thoughtful in their junk selections - only the best for you - promise!! ;)

I also know that in the future, I will be very careful about suggestions I make - because the old saying of "what goes around comes around" is a very true statement - especially when you're talking junk!


Kathy

P.S. I'll be delivering mine in a van!

Re: Welcome to my cottage......maybe

Midge, Midge, Midge - I love your inner tube welcome wreath/message board creation! It's just too much fun, and I love how you can change it out for different messages - very ingenius my friend!! (And for the fisherman...don't forget "gone fishing") I should do one of these for my deck.

Thanks so much for sharing!

Re: A street light named desire...

Re: Gardens at Cabin Update

Gretchen - I saw this on your blog... Love it all! So peaceful, creative and beautiful! The photos alone are so soothing, I can only imagine how much more so it is in real life - what a special place to be able to visit and relax.

The plaque that you found in memory of your Mom is really touching, and your flowers are so beautiful.

I remember you talking about the dumpster diving you did for the granite stones - :) - lots of hard work - and it's turned out (and aging) wonderfully!

Thanks for sharing! Kathy

Re: Sometimes it's ok to break a dish (or two)...

Thanks everybody! My favorite is the "beach ball" (and the easiest one to do too).

Candy...Terri isn't posting yet... Will see what I can do! ;)

Midge - it's definitely time to get out the grout! (and save your toes!) (And, Alice - yep - another "reason" to pick up more shells on vacation!!)

Lani - throwing plates at your hubby??? Well, that's one way to break them! ha ha!!

AND...garage sale update: (drum roll)...I made my road trip money! Woo hoo!!

You guys are the best and I really appreciate your comments!! Thanks, again! Kathy


Re: How To Resize Photos

Candy - great tips my friend! Re-sizing took me a while to figure out. I use Photoshop Elements, and it's pretty simple. Also, haven't used the setting on my camera - but I know it's there - will have to see how that works too.

On my blog I don't seem to be able to upload pictures that can be clicked on and enlarged...not sure what I'm doing (and/or not doing) there...just part of my learning curve! :)

Good luck all - and can't wait to see your pics/posts!!

Welcome to the site - and congrats on your first post! You brought a new and elegant life to your mail caddy - love the clothes pins on the sides for little "extras".

Also love them being used as shelves - a nice clean look too!

Simply divine!! (And great photography as always!)

P.S. I'm sure the kids don't mind...especially if there's food involved! :)

Another wonderful/creative addition to your party "line" of projects... :)

Bravo!

Re: Needing advice

Hi Tabitha, and welcome to JunkMarket Style!

Will the trunk be in a protected area like a porch or deck? I might just line it with some kind of vinyl or plastic (maybe a vinyl tablecloth with a print to it, or at least a color that's better than black plastic) - you should be able to staple it in place, and then put some different containers of plants in the trunk - then you could easily water or change the plants, move the trunk, etc... If you have a few small containers you could set a small table or stand inside and arrange your planters around it (for some heighth).

That's a great piece for "planting"! Good luck and please share the finished project!

Take care, Kathy

Re: How to Re-Purpose a Scale

Sue - looks like I'm the first to "weigh in"! I love that you used the scale for a much more fun and functional use than that "other" use! It looks great in your bathroom and makes everything so convenient to get to. (And, love the color combo...pink, black, white, and the perfect little touch of "rust"!.)

Thanks for sharing!

Kathy

Re: Clean-up that Yard With a Little Junk!

Lani - Your garden junk is all absolutely wonderfully fabulous!! From your beautiful front porch - the park bench, fan collection (very cool), chairs, etc.... to all your great containers for your planters - it's breathtaking!

Thanks for sharing, and I'll defnitely have to check out your blog for more pics!

Re: The Rusty Gardener

Thanks for visiting my garden and your comments too! It's so great to have an audience that understands how great junk works in a garden/yard/porch...etc. I'm not sure if all my neighbors do! LOL :)

Bucky is certainly a conversation piece - he isn't allowed in the pool though...too many sharp edges...I guess you could say he's a "fish out of water"...(sorry).

Sue - You won't believe it but I found another scooter this past weekend (exactly the same - just not faded - it's a nice vintage red - should I hold it for you??).

Dana - I'm sure there are quite a few husbands who think we're a bit nuts (mine is one of them, but he's used to me).

RustyDiva - Can't wait to see your pics!!

Gretchen - the rusty, bluish planter is my favorite. I've got some little glass-topped sidetables that match too.

Thanks again everybody - and if you want to see the rest...be sure to check my blog (yep, there's more!!) :)

Re: A JUNKTILLERY BIRD BATH

Christy, I love this (and the color you chose for the base is just right for your garden setting). This is a piece that will last forever, and definitely won't blow over in the wind!

Great job!

P.S. I've heard those comments before (or gotten the look when I leave the thrift store with a piece of "junk")...but, those people should see the finished product,right?? :) They'd be amazed!

Re: My lunchtime menu: JUNK!

Thanks for the comments everybody! It looks like we're all open to a little lunchtime junking! :) I hit the thrift stores once a week too (at lunchtime).

Gretchen - We'd have to share the "S" spoons - you could have one and I'll take one! :)

And, Jim - yep - it's a sickness - with no known cure (thankfully) LOL!

I went to some sales on Friday (on the way back from an out of town furniture delivery..and we found almost nothing...go figure!), and then on Saturday - found a van load (a neighborhood sale - love those!). So, our junking definitely has its off days - but plenty of good ones to make up for it!

Take care, Kathy

Re: Hey Mr. DJ . . .

Lani - what a wonderful tribute to your Dad! I'm sure you make him very proud!! The wall piece you created is so unique and very cool. It goes so well with your microphone collection (love those!!)

Take care and have a great weekend!

Kathy

Re: My lunchtime menu: JUNK!

Glad you're all enjoying your virtual trip on my little lunchtime "junket"! There was definitely plenty of stuff to go around (and around)...

RustyDiva - My personal choice for a career would definitely be a personal junk shopper (where should I send my resume?) :) ---- I could do this every day! (Does that sound extreme?? Nah - you guys understand!)

Geo - the wooden file cabinet was very cool...and it was a steal! And you're right about hidden treasure, there were boxes stacked under the tables that you couldn't even get to (so, I may have to go back Saturday when things have thinned out a bit!).

Hey LuAnn...I told you it was great stuff! :)

There is definitely great junk in Ohio! (and I mean that in a very positive way!) ha ha

Kathy

Take care, Kathy

P.S. Thank you to my fellow-Buckeye junker, Candy, for the help getting started and the inspiration for my flowers! :)

Re: Drink Up! CrAzY Bottle Collection

Jim - this is so cool - it looks like soda pop heaven for sure! You've done these vintage beverages proud - your pics and display are amazing (as always!!).

Yikes - can you imagine soda (or pop as we say in Ohio...) tasting like a potato?? You may have the only one ever sold!! :)

Thanks for sharing!

Kathy

Looks like it's party time for sure - and movie nite too??

Kathy

Sharon - another Buckeye! :) We definitely need to round up these Ohio junkers one of these days!!

Have a great weekend! Kathy

P.S. Gonna see if I can find a DD movie to watch!

Love it! Kathy

Re: JMS on The Today Show with Matt!

Sue - you rocked and really know how to "throw a garage sale"! Loved the merchandising, and the "dressing room" was totally cool! And, the "free" stuff - great tip! Because, everybody LOVES free! This is getting me inspired to drag some stuff up from my basement - I really need to have a garage sale!

You're a natural! Looking forward to your next "gig"!

Safe travels home and can't wait to see more "junk"!

Kathy

Re: Springfield Extravaganza - tis the season - to "flea"

Alice - good walking shoes are a must! Hope to see you!!!

AND....I'm so excited (and surprised...didn't know she was "lurking") - I'd like to introduce firsttimejunker (aka Sara) - my sis-in-law! Guess this junking thing is contagious! Now you're definitely going to have to come up with something to share with us...(no pressure!) - and we definitely need to set aside some time for some sisterly junking! :) Hugs!

Kathy

Re: Rusty Old Wheelbarrow Planter

Jim - what a great deal! All you had to do was add the flowers - it looks great!

My neighbor was going to take one to the dump (like yours...rusty, with holes, etc...) - but, he knew I was a "bit" of a junk collector - and asked me if I wanted it (of course "yes" was my answer) - it now resides in my garden filled with flowers too!

It's so nice of someone else to age these pieces so we can enjoy them in their repurposed life!!

Kathy

Re: Loaf Pan Candle

That was made to hold candles - it just didn't know it until now!! Great job, and I bet it smells divine!

Thanks for sharing!

Kathy

Re: Medicine Cabinet for Small Oddities

Great cabinet - and love the use of the chicken wire! Fun stuff to display too!

Kathy

Re: Old Door Coffee Table

A "belated" welcome to JunkMarket Style - and a "belated" "WOW" - great table you made from your door - and accidents can be good things - definitely good in this one! The finish is perfectly suited for the table!

Kathy

Re: Vintage frames turned Earrings Holders

Great job! And so useful too. Love the fabrics you chose!

Good junk luck tomorrow! We'll be watching...and then going out garage sale-ing!!! :)

Re: A Desk Re-Done

Sue, what a very "smart" redo of Elizabeth's study nook (and you did it while she was gone - what a great surprise!!) Love the colors too - and the vintage barber dish is very cool!

I had big fun helping my daughter decorate when she went away to college (I know about the moving away thing...sometimes a sore subject with us Moms...) - but after graduation she moved to the east coast (smaller space)...now I've got a lot of it in my basement "in storage"! ha ha

Take care! Kathy

Re: Red HOT Kindel vanity REDO

Very cool! The color is awesome and suits the piece perfectly - great pics too!

Kathy

Re: Girls Just Wanna Have Fun- Contributor Challenge

Kathy

Kathy

Re: "FOREVER THE WALTZ"

Janis - your signature elegant style - beautiful! Love the portfolio idea (it just gave me an idea for something too!). And your 2-tier stand is so sweet (love the little knobs/feet - gotta have some feet for a little waltz, right??)

Well done! Kathy

Re: Springfield Extravaganza - tis the season - to "flea"

Thanks all! Glad to take everybody on a "virtual" fleamarket trip...! I'd love to show you all around the show personally (hmmm...a professional fleamarket tour guide...I would SO love that!!) - it's an amazing show!

Geo - we would have a blast, I'm sure!!! (Candy...you too!)

Candy, every time I see metal letters, I'm looking for an "A"! :) (how many do you want??) ha ha

Jim, I laughed out loud when I read your comment about the couch...I put the green monkey there! :) (It was a good contrast...well, maybe not such a contrast, they were both pretty ugly!)

Claudia - we just can't seem to pass up a thrift store...even if we're totally exhausted! (It's a sickness!!) :)

If you want to see more great pics...I put a bunch more "junk" on my blog. (www.sylviasdaughter.blogspot.com)

Kathy

P.S. Have I ever told my junking friends - I just love you all??!! I do!! :)

Suze...will do a little research...stay tuned!

Re: JMS Returns to The Today Show

Sue - Congrats! Would love to be one of those people holding a sign in the background (maybe I'll make my daughter get up early that day and do it for me!!). I'm thinking a coast-to-coast garage sale tour is in order (how fun would that be - we have a trailer we could fill!!) - or maybe the Partridge Family would loan us their bus!

My DVR will be set for sure!

Kathy

P.S. Got some great stuff while garage "hopping" (as my father-in-law calls it) yesterday. This is my favorite time of year!

Re: Picture Holder Perfect for a Crash Test Dummy!

Lani - that guardrail is rusty perfection (great vision and repurpose)!! An awesome way to display your kiddos' artwork!

Kathy

Great seeing you all together - in deep junk discussion!

Sue - the #4 necklace is so sweet and the meaning behind it too! Does Gretchen have a #9???

Thanks for sharing - do you have a pen permanently attached to your hand?? :)

Kathy

Thanks for sharing! Kathy

Re: back door message center

Great idea - and perfect placement too! No one can miss the news of the day!

Thanks for sharing! Kathy

Re: How to Spiff Up the Biff

OldBarnRescue...It's fun how a creation takes on a personality, and a name to go along with it just adds to the charm.

My friend Terri and I have named some of the tools in our workshop...we have a tiny ball-peen hammer that we named "Bertha", our cordless drill is "Raquel"...and we have a mannequin bust that we named "Marilyn" that we display jackets on...silly girl stuff, I guess! :)

Kathy

Re: Time for Junk!

Great clocks...and great vision. I really love the pot lid - fun color on it too!

Welcome to JunkMarketStyle and can't wait to see more!

Kathy

Love the handbags made from ties and the garden spikes. Thanks for sharing!

Kathy

P.S. And, it looked like a beautiful weather day - a bonus, right?

Re: A lamp is a lamp, is a lamp...again!

oldtoysrock903 - It did sell on Friday... And another lady came in and saw it, and she said she had seen it on the junkmarketstyle site - good advertising I guess!! :)

Will keep an eye out for the other half (it was probably part of a pair) - ya never know! :)

Kathy

Re: Where do you keep a keyboard?... In a piano, of course.

Midge - your piano desk is unbelievable and so original! I love that you could keep the keys intact too...under plexiglass - how cool!

You're definitely right in tune with this project!! Love it!

Kathy

Re: A lamp is a lamp, is a lamp...again!

Thanks for all your "groovy" comments!! I know the lamp will find a good home this weekend...

And, thanks Geo...It's just too much fun!! :)

Re: Dustpan Note Organizer

Very cute! Love the color and the new reuse!!

Kathy

Re: A lamp is a lamp, is a lamp...again!

Thanks everybody - so glad you all like it! I just love it too - and I'm sure it will sell right away this weekend.

I would normally grab a can of spray paint, but this color was already perfect - and very 70s...and who doesn't love flowers??

I really think it was meant to be a hanging light too...guess it's been waiting for me to rescue it! :)

Kathy

Re: How to Spiff Up the Biff

Sue - Bart looks quite content in his new surroundings...considering it's the bathroom - ha ha!! So, it looks like his new profession is bathroom butler - offering you a handtowel when needed! Too cute!

He definitely is a piece that brings a smile!

Thanks for sharing!

Kathy

P.S. My friend and I name things too...tools in our workshop, etc... we have the tiniest little hammer that we painted robin's egg blue and named "bertha"...too much fun!

Re: vintage playpen/crib shelves and spring junk finds!

That is a wonderful bunch of junk finds! Looks like you'll have lots of fun with it - and the crib is awesome!

Kathy

P.S. The softballs add just the right touch of the good ol' summertime!

Re: Found Dentist chair in my BASEMENT under the stairs!!!!!!!!!!

What an unbelievable find!

Kathy

(any other goodies in your basement??)

Re: Happy Mother's Day

Jim - what a junking great gift for your Mom! The flowers and great too! What a good son you are! :)

Sue, spent the day with my Mom and brothers and sister! Lots of laughs (we provide my Mom with entertainment - without even trying...that's what kids do, right?? At any age I think!).

Hope your day was fun too!

Kathy

Re: A junking weekend - on the road to Kentucky...(Part 2)

Janis...with all that junk...the fun just had to follow, right??? :) Wish we could all take one big junking trip - wouldn't that be HUGE fun???

Christy - and the great part is that it doesn't need to have water added (well, unless you wanted to add to the rustiness)!

Eva - the photo of the fence doesn't really do it justice, but I tried!

Thanks ladies!

Kathy

Re: Antique Sale FUN!!

Geo - beautiful display and great stuff! Those little stool/chairs are fun - and that hose reel hiding by the table is very cool! So glad you did so well! Fun, fun, fun!!

Take care, Kathy

Re: French Bed Canopy

Eva - that rusty wheel looks beautiful in its setting - what a great rescue! And, fun to add different things to keep the look fresh.

Great job, Kathy

Re: Wall Cabinets

Eva - great little shelf - and I love the pieces you used in it too! Good to see you back - I know you're having fun looking at all the new stuff - and there's lots!

Take care, Kathy

Re: Fun & Unique Jewelry Displays by Gretchen

Gretchen! You've put it all together so perfectly (with a splash of "junk" with your beautiful "bling')! I love the claw foot...rusty patina and all...who would have thought it'd go so well with your beautiful jewelry (us junkers, right??) - cuz we get it!

Very creative display, and I also love how you "slipcovered" the modern display piece with burlap!

Thanks for sharing!

Kathy

Re: How to Dress up a Dinner Party

Sue - you've done it again!!! Love the look - great colors, so fun and welcoming (and I noticed the "K"...so, yes, I'll accept! :). The cuff on the bottle is ingenious, and I can picture you going through pickle jars at the store...too funny! (Remember, they probably have cameras...it makes for good entertainment I'm sure.)

I think it's going to be crowded at your table...!

Kathy

Re: record challenge - butterflies are free and so are records

Love the flutterbyes too! How cool - some fun uses for old records...who would have thought?

Will have to look for the Salvage Studio book.

Thanks for sharing! Kathy

Shadow - works for dog treats, right??? How cute is he? and what a great story - love getting to know a celebrity!

Kathy

Re: HAND ME A "MIRROR"!!!

Janis...(fyi - I always click "awesome" before I even look at your post...cuz I know it's going to be!)

And, your mirrors are so sweet - such an elegant touch - I can picture a wall done in mirrors with these mixed in for a bit of bling!

And, the water globe was a great find! Tres chic!

Thanks for sharing.

Kathy

Re: Another JUNK wind chime...

Lots of inspiration in the Junkmarketstyle books!

Thanks for sharing.

Re: My Texas-sized Junk Swap Package!

AtticusFinch - thanks so much for the background on my two little angels - on the back of the larger one it says "sunflower angel" - special edition - 1996; the little one is holding a heart and is stamped 1986. They're very sweet.

Thanks Eileen & Gretchen - Bridget really outdid herself! :)

OK Sue...it's on my "to do" list!!

Kathy

Re: The French Flea Occassional Market Place

Would love to be able to come to a junkmarket event! And a sleep over? Big fun!

Get some rest girls!!

Kathy

Re: Junk Chime

Candy - the chime is so sweet! I bet the girls had fun milking a cow. I got to do that years ago at my aunt's farm...but, I gotta say...once was enough for me! LOL

Have a great weekend!

Kathy

Re: Greetings from Project Land

Geo...what great stuff! It looks like you've been working like a crazy woman (that's what we do, isn't it??). I love the fence light - I've got some fencing in my basement just waiting to be converted into one of these. And, I love all those green crystals!!!! I know your show is going to be a huge success!

Thanks for sharing - and can't wait to see pics of your space.

Kathy

P.S. About the conservatory - really nicely decorated...just think of this one as "baby steps"...you'll build one of your own and it'll be fabulous!

Re: My Texas-sized Junk Swap Package!

This is my third swap - it's so much fun - the giving and receiving!! And another way to get to know fellow junkers...

There's one every few months or so - so, Rachel will probably put out a post to let people know when the next one will be.

Bridget's package was really amazing - and I'll be enjoying my gifts for quite a while. It was definitely like Christmas...

Merry junking, Kathy :)

Re: BUILT IN CUPBOARD & OTHER GOODIES

HAVE FUN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Kathy

Re: Cast Iron Stove Picture Frame

Geo - fabulous frames (forget that they were stove pieces) - they really were meant to be frames (it just took them a few years to realize it - or for you to find them)!!

Great job!

Kathy

Re: Garden Totems

Janis...you could do a small tabletop one - with a platter for the base - I know it'd turn out beautiful! :)

(No balls being kicked in the house, right??) ;)

Kathy

Re: A junking weekend - on the road to Kentucky...(Part 2)

Thanks all (and thanks for visiting my blog too)! It was a great start to the junking/antiquing season!! And, yep - there's hope - even if it rains...us junkers don't give up easily - and the thrill of the hunt is the biggest fun (Geo - you're right...those engines are always running - and with the slightest hint of rust - watch out!...!)!!

P.S. Time for a junking field trip to Ohio!

Re: How to Create a "Living Green" Centerpiece

Lani - No "L"s right now...but ya never know what we might find! And, I think it's fun to be able to find something that someone's been looking for...and, we've got a LOT of junk in Ohio (that almost sounds like a bad thing...but it's not!!) ha ha

Kathy

P.S. Geo...good luck to you and Jenny at your show!!!

Re: Garden Totems

These are great and they really do add some sparkle to your garden. Very nice job, junkermidge! We've made some of these too. As an alternative to sticking one in the ground, I've used a platter as a base for some of mine, then they can sit on a bench or tabletop too.

I love seeing everyone's "take" on a project - so much creativity!

Thanks for sharing! Kathy

Re: Galvanized Flower Garden

Jim - what a great planter - and metal goes good with any color, and that green is perfect!! I love how you put the two feeders together in the same project too! Those flowers look right at home...

Re: Sterno Burners are NOT just for Tea.

Geo...you've got some flower power going there!! So many uses, and what a fun (definitely Brady Bunch) color and flower design.

In the last picture (where it's standing up ready for heat), wouldn't it be great with a cloche sitting on top, and a little something inside??? Or as a little plant stand?

Thanks for sharing.

Re: On the road again...

Thanks for all the comments everybody. Unfortunately...Mother Nature won this one...we had a few hours of clear skies in the morning on Sunday (started selling at 6:00 a.m.), but rained out by noon. There were still those diehard shoppers trudging around, and there were some sales - we covered our expenses - but, that's the fleamarket business...

HOWEVER, it was a girls' weekend and we had our two friends with us - we had a blast on our travels, made a couple new friends - found some really great junk (will post later) and wore ourselves out laughing (that's a good thing!!). After we got back, I left my friend's house - and on the way home found a "gift" by the side of the road - a "free" sign sitting in front of an old wooden hand plow "thingie", so I had to turn around (as it was screaming at me to put it in my garden), and threw it in the back of my (already pretty full) van! So...all is well!!! :)

Also, we were invited to be vendors at an Antique Festival in Waynesville, Ohio - it'll be awesome - Waynesville is called the "Antique Capital of the Midwest"...it'll be huge fun and a great show!

Thanks again, everyone!

Re: Crib Notes On Weaving - Shhh, Don't Tell

Candy...you've done it again - no sewing, no gluing, and no power tools...and you come with a simply (casual) elegant look - you've got a gift, girl!!! Love it!

Thanks for sharing!

Re: On the road again...

Thanks everybody for your comments! I'm hoping our customers feel the same way!! :)

piecesofthepast - if you go to the link for the show you can get a map - hoping you're nearby...it's a really nice show - beautiful country setting - good vendors & good food! Would love to meet you!

Jenny, I really like the box too. I put pics on my blog and one of my friends posted a request to buy it - wish we had 6 more to sell!!

Janis, the color of the table is awesome - and I distressed the heck out of it to get back some of the original (gray) paint too - it's a nice mix.

Take care, Kathy

Re: JUNKMARKET Style's 2009 Top "10" in Junk

Sue - Great top 10! And stopping at 10 does seem like a real junker's test for sure!! :) You know a lot of us have this issue with "stuff"...that's why we fill drawers, closets, rooms, basements, garages, sheds, etc., etc... Oops - I said too much, didn't I???

Love the lockers (more room for "stuff")!
