How can people not like JUNK?
Why is it some people ‘get it’ and others don’t?
My kids know that mama loves junk.
The other day, we passed by a junk yard (a true old car heap junkyard) and the kids yelled – ‘ MOM – STOP! It’s a whole yard of junk’ So we had a little lesson in the the types and levels of junk.
How do we define ‘junk?’
You all know the feeling. You arrive at a garage sale & there is GOOD junk – yippeee.
But sometimes, you stop and there truly is only junk (that doesn’t fit our bill of junk – think maybe old rubbermaid containers, broken toys, plastic xmas decorations?)
But then sometimes you get:
this little itsy bitsy ruffled baby slip
put them all together with some tucking here and there --
and for evening wear -
piles of junk - er – junk vignettes around the house
my succulents in an old wooden cheese box alongside a sifter with another succelent tucked inside…
and some rocks – just because
just a simple ladder with a huge plant hung from it –
beauty to me
my collection of vintage doorknobs in a vase
the little copper metal thing below is actually supposed to hang from the top of a door and a hanger can slip through the little outie portion for hanging a robe or something….I flipped it unside down & wrote with chalk for display instead
and then I moved it here
at my desk I’ve got a vintage muffin tin to hold office supplies and a flower frog for pens
at the kitchen window above the sink – some metal pots with plants and a street directional arrow sign – yum
love that sign
love that sign
in my craft area – another muffin tin
and I love me some scrabble letters
jar oh jars
This is just a smattering…I have more – oh much more – TOO MUCH more.
I am feeling the need to edit more so we’ll see what changes that brings to the cottage.
The problem is I like all the things individually just not all of them all of the time. It’s kinda (not exactly) like deciding which of my babies to keep (well more like which puppies actually.)
ta-ta for now!
