FuNkY JuNk and JuNkY FuN

The new year has everyone searching for happiness, wealth, success, you know, all the important stuff. My theory on this is...clean the basement. So, a couple of days ago, I took the plunge. Our house was built in 1938, so it has the block basement walls. One corner is the coal room. There is the fruit room. And the main room still has a functioning well pump. I love this old house and I am truely honored to live here. I have some issues with staying on track, so it helps to have several different rooms! I jump from room to room. The goal for the month is to get some organization with all of my junk and make room for the projects that I have not completed. I found old door knobs, rusty and crusty tools, Ball jars filled with nuts and bolts, baling wire, wood chunks and some trinkets. I can't wait to get them all put together and then the creativity will hopefully follow. We won't open the barn until April or May. That seems like a long ways away, but I know we have to get a jump on it! I think I will head to Gilbert, to see Brenda at JBKnacker for some inspiration. Her shop is always a treat. Gotta get, I hear some junk calling me from the basement!


  1. Isn't it the truth! I too heard the muse calling, and followed my heart to my favorite inspirational spots! That need to sweep it clean and freshen it up is what keeps our shops and our lives happy!

  2. Good luck! I have some major organizing to do myself. Too much junk? Never!! Spring does seem forever away, but I have lots to get done before then. Take care. Have fun at Brenda's, I need to make a trip up there too!
