It finally snowed here. Everything is so fresh and pretty. I enjoy the view of my winter garden from my kitchen and dining room windows.
I found this idea on Pinterest so I just dove into my stash of doilies and bits & pieces of ribbon/lace to create this lovely little beauty. It's a favorite scarf of mine.
I turned a thrift shop dress into the currently popular infinity scarves.
I have fun out in the shop working with the silverware preparing it for jewelry. Hammering, sawing & drilling holes is very good therapy. I draw inspiration from Pinterest.
I'm getting ready for some local spring trade shows. Pinterest is my inspiration.
Wire frame + crystals = chandelier.
I was inspired by Gretchen Schaumann. I'm so pleased with the finished product.
I found this idea after Christmas so I know it's late to post for this past Christmas but I liked it so much that I had to share. I'll be on the lookout for old necklaces all year round so I can make...
My inspiration came from pinterest. I designed a large letter M (the first letter of my mom's name) and had my husband cut it out from wood. I decoupaged pages from an old encyclopedia onto it then...
A junky rain gauge looks great in my yard.
I enjoy viewing the bird bath creation in the garden from my kitchen window.
I created a glass castle for my garden.
My birdcages don't house birds but they're great for displaying my collections.
I was cleaning out the media cupboard. Instead of just throwing out the old VHSs I dismantled them to see what I could do with them. It's so much fun tearing things apart.
When my sister worked at a travel agency, she gave me one of the tubes that their advertising posters came in. It was plain white with ugly ink stamps and labels so I put my own touch on it. Now...
This cabinet was only $7 (compared to the $60 - $75 ones that were old but in nice condition). My husband built a back and a shelf for it; I fixed it up adding scrap moulding and key hooks.
Before even reaching our destination of Shakopee for the Junk Bonanza, we stopped at a town with an antique mall and discovered town wide garage sales. And so the shopping began. After leaving...
I attended Junk Bonanza in Shakopee, MN on Sept. 17. I had an absolute blast and loved every minute of it. It was a full day but I managed to get around to all of the more than one hundred...
My mom is cleaning out a corner in her basement and I ended up carting this very heavy cream separator home. I remember dad milking the cow and mom using the separator. There's nothing better...
I buy up old sewing machines whenever I can. Love them.
I used an old window for this project, leftover glass from stained glass projects, jewelry, glass nuggets, broken china and other bits and pieces. Clear silicone is marvelous for this. Originally, I...
I was inspired by other junkers to try my hand at one of these sculptures. I like how it turned out and the challenge of fastening it all together. The bell still makes a dinging sound so whenever I...
I am pleased with the way my chalkboard door looks hanging at my back door. I may add some more hardware sometime down the road but for now, like the clean simlplicity of it.
This is my last swap project with goodies from Karilelek. It's been fun. Thanks Kari!
I'm still working with my package of junk with Karilelek.
I've purchased some beautiful glass and other decorative eggs at Easter time. I like to showcase them on a branch from the backyard along with the eggs I've decorated that I've featured...
More fabulous junk from karilelek.
Lamps I received from karilelek.
I'm having so much fun with my junk package from karilelek!
Thanks again to Karilelek for the tub of junk.
I went junking two and a half hour's drive away from home. I couldn't believe how CHEAP, CHEAP, CHEAP the thrift store prices were. Spent a grand total of $25.77 for all of this. I only wish I'd been...
Thanks a million to karilelek, my junk partner, for the fabulous goodies she sent.
I found this globe with a broken, ugly base. I knew I could find something better, but didn't know what at the time.
I created this shadow box to display a lot of my favorite things; beaded purses, lace, vintage jewelry & old watches. My husband built the box for behind the picture frame and my framing friend...
I love vintage lampshades and had a collection of them before discovering junkmarketstyle. Now I'm putting them to good use and having a blast glueing glassware together.
I always make time to "thrift" while I'm in the city. I don't usually have anything specific in mind (just an on-going list for future projects) but go in to see whatever will catch my eye.
Actually, if I wanted to use these for travelling, I'd have a lot of unpacking of "stuff" before I could pack to travel. I just can't pass up buying suitcases, especially if they are blue or white...
These are a few Santas from my large and growing collection.
I bought this whole set of encyclopedias for two dollars. I wasn't sure what I'd use them for but I liked the neutral color of them. It seemed wrong at first to destroy these books of knowledge but...
I seem to buy a lot of these little vintage lamps. I like the pom poms on the original lampshade but also like to change things up sometimes so a slipcover seemed like the answer for this lamp. If I...
A simple, inexpensive project using old books. Also a great conversation piece. The folded books can be dispayed laying down on a coffee table or add a simple plate hanger and hang them on the wall.
It's been un-seasonably warm weather here in Canada so I was able to gather up my junk and create my Christmas vignettes without freezing. Now all we need is snow to make it feel like Christmas.
I found this piece of chain in our junk pile. It was rusted into this form and I took my cue from other junkers on this site as to what to do with it. I've displayed a vintage postcard.
My daughter needed some painted axes to represent Slovakia at a beer festival. I had a couple days notice to get these ready. They were a big hit.
A few junk pieces and pumkins come together to create this scene.
Just wanted to share my halloween display even though it doesn't consist totally of junk.
I make teddy bears from old coats, quilts and bedspreads. I've had quite a few requests to make the bears for people from their grandma's fur coat.
Lacey flower bouquet that won't wilt.
"Button, button. Who's got the button?" A phrase I remember my mom and grandma saying.
When I saw these earrings, I thought snowflakes and then I thought Christmas tree ornaments.
I bought some alarm clocks to take apart to make jewellery but when I went to smash them, I thought they were too cute. So . . . . .yet another collection was born. There's safety in numbers, right?
I "married" a footed bowl and plate. I laid a string of pearls around the base of the candle and stuck a vintage pin in the side. (For safety I would remove the pearls and pin while burning the...
I combined chandelier crystals, silverware, pieces of old necklaces and a colander to make this windchime. Maybe someday I'll wire it to make a light fixture.
I nailed and wired an old iron headboard to the wall then added lace, silk flowers, some purses from my collection and some other pretty things to design this headboard.
