JunkMarket Trunk Show Preview...with pictures :)

 If you read my last post you know that I've been having some trouble posting this week.  But I am happy to say I am back in "business"!!  Yay :)
Thanks to all of you who gave me tips and tricks...I really appreciate it!  Honestly, all this computer stuff stresses me out...I just want to make stuff, post about it and chat with you all.  Is that too much to ask??
 But during my "down time" I got a lot done for the JunkMarket show this weekend.  
Want to see a few of the things I am bringing?

I think this was my favorite new idea.
 I bought a few of these chippy garden fence sections at Christmas time for an idea that never happened.

Chipping with Charm:  Garden Fence Heart...
I took them apart and then layered them on top of each other.
I used twine to tie them together.
 Chipping with Charm:  Garden Fence Heart...
Ta daa...a heart for photos...or whatever you choose.  
I also used a couple for something else...but that's a surprise for the show.  You'll have to stop back to see photos of the booth if you are curious :)

(I'll be sure to post pictures of our booth and more on Facebook tonight after we set up too.)

Here's a peek at a few more things that will be in our booth...

Chipping with Charm:  Trowel Photo Holders and Knob with Flowers...
Chipping with Charm:  Old Tool Photo/Memo Holder...
Chipping with Charm:  Junkmarket Trunk Show...
 Chipping with Charm:  Rustic Level Crosses...
Chipping with Charm:  Sign by Signs of the Times...
Of course I will be sharing a booth again with my talented friend Joan of Signs of the Times.  Don't you LOVE this sign??

  1. I'm glad your computer problems are solved. Your projects are wonderful, Laurel. I especially love the fence part heart and the repurposed magnetic boards.
    Have lots of fun and success at the market!

  2. I had to stuff stressed me out, too! Love all of your creations...I'd LOVE to be at the show!
    Good luck :)

  3. Love the photos Laurel! I just did something with a cabinet door just like that one! So glad you got the glitches worked out! :)

  4. Computers cause headaches from all the stress. When I hear, "You may need to contact your IT department." I'm thinking, "I AM the IT department." Ugg. Thank goodness we can all get our craft on to release the stress. So wish I lived closer so that I could attend the sale and see all your creations in person. Thanks for the fun peeks. Love them all.

  5. Great creations and I am happy your computer problems are solved. I feel so lucky that my husband always takes care of my computer, I call him my IT guy, LOL!


  6. Hope you have a wonderful show, your cute fence heart idea!

  7. Everything is super adorable and just my style Laurel... Good luck on your sale. When I'm ready to open a shop I will be contacting you for pointers!

  8. You have some wonderful items to bring to the sale. Love the wire heart, photo hanger - it's genius! good luck on the sale, so wish I could make it since I'm so close but we have plans with family. bummer.

  9. LOVE that heart! You have so many wonderful things, Laurel. I wish I could see them up close and personal. Good luck on the show. I hope you sell it ALL! xo Diana

  10. You are so talented! I love the wire fence shaped into a heart! I love all things junky, but sometimes my junk doesn't throw together so well. My displays can look cluttered. You have such an artistic knack. Thanks for the inspiration. Hope you're surviving your winter in MinneSNOWta. We've been gone ten years and I still miss the amazing people, but NOT the snow. :)

  11. Love your sweet things! I had a peak at them this morning on facebook! Hope it's going wonderful for you!!! :) xo Holly

  13. Good luck with the show. Love your creations ... especially the vintage door know vases.
