NEW blog! Introducing Funky Junk Interiors

Ok, call me crazy, but I have to go with this one. Because the mere idea is sending me to the moon.

For many years, I've been an avid antique shopper. The FIND is just electrifying (in a good way) as the implement. I love to find junk and create exitement in a home in unique and surprising ways.

Before Cody was born, I've long loved to go to auctions, flea markets, garage sales, you name it. The tiniest unique cup can become a wonderful conversation piece in the right placement. The once kitchen table, now a coffee table, becomes the most amazing and productive feature you can imagine. The once old beat up sign in someone's scrap yard has become my headboard that I adore and makes me smile every time I walk into my bedroom.

This stuff triggers me. It's abit like playing hide and seek and place with special finds.

With this house well under way of becoming a gorgeous backdrop, my crazy fanatical musings and head boggling images are bursting at the seams. I can't stop. And I don't want to. Imagine being an extreme decorator and having to shut that down for 4 LONG years. Hello to me... I just woke up. And you have NO idea how fast my head is spinning.

I'll continue to enter all the continued renos online with great pictures and immense thanks to those that are continuing to help me through this hump. But at the same time, I have to also share what's sparking me back into life again.

So for you decorator types that are curious as to what's going to continue to happen again and again in this house, and perhaps others, check out...

I'm going to share my finds and what I do with them. I'll show you amazing inspirational footage from other blogs that will having you absolutely drooling to find that old barn wood or old door.

You simply haven't seen nothin' yet.

There's a special plan for all my creative energy. I know it. The house had to materialize to become my backdrop for what's to become. If we are patient, The Plan is implemented in all due time. We just have to chose to take the action and fly with it.

So, I hope you're curious enough to wander over to that 'funky' blog. This reno blog will now resume to regularly scheduled programming, and that's to do with the house finishing. The decorating fun will be at the other.

FUN! Who doesn't like fun?!? I hope you are as intriqued as I am inspired. And get ready to shake your head at a few ideas I have to share... they just might inspire you to be brave with your own decorating... or perhaps need me to help you... either way, I hope you enjoy the ride!
