Memory Lane...

I've always had a passion for decorating and love of "junk" and repurposing didn't bloom until after I was married.  My husband was frugal and let's just say I "was not"...but once he introduced me to garage sales and flea markets I was hooked, shopping and collecting to my hearts content for prices we could both agree on!  I came across Junkmarket Style, bought all 3 books and lurked around the site for a while and before I finally started posting.  Now a whole new world has opened up...hope you don't mind a trip down Memory Lane with me...

These garden table leg sconces were my very first post...

Still love these shipping crate flower boxes my handy hubby welded a base for.

This chippy basket fixture received a spot in the "Best of 2009" member posts...I was honored...

Dripping with crystals and keys...ahhhh...

These springy wine bottle charms even earned a trip with me to the Art Architecture/Junkmarket Style show in May 2009

My latest junky update was my front porch all decked out with my Country Junk Sale finds.

Thanks for taking this trip with me...speaking of remembering...I like to "remember" what my flowers used to look like when I took the pictures for this recent funky flower post :)
