Just Junk

I must admit this idea came from another blog on my list at the right, Round Barn Potting Company. I have an unlimited supply of pickle jars!! So I used this to hold some of my junk stuff till I am ready to put them to use in another project. I did this over the holiday break.

Since I have been busy latley I haven't had the time to create something new, but a new Magazine called Flea Market Style came out It inspired me to use some of my junk in just decorating! Link also to the right.

The old glass globe below is a fav of mine and I am waiting to find just the right idea to make it special, it currently has a candle in it but doesn't show uo due to the flash.

The fan Ibought last summer for 1 dollar! An old part of a book wrapped in twine and an old paperback book folded into a tree, I made some of these around Christmas time, I have plans to add a rusty star to the top and spray with glitter, for next year.

In the magazine, if you seen one the folded pages of the book could be put to good use, a later blog post!!!
Using twine to tie around old books came from the Round Barn Potting Co.


  1. Wow! I love the wonderful decorating ideas you have here - especially the pickle jar. I will definitely be checking out the blogs you have mentioned ...

  2. You know I sometimes think our junk is just perfect for decor just like you did. It's art itself and doesn't necessarily need to be re-purposed. I have a jar of rusty junk like yours and I LOVE IT.
    I really need to try the book tree thing-that's awesome! Maybe March Junkle Bells!

  3. I just found your blog and I love it... Very great way to display your junk finds...

    Keep On Junking

  4. Good grief - you could keep me entertained for hours just with the jar!!! I love it!!!
