Happy Falloween to AllSeptember 13th, 2011 in blog
With little Ms. Sue takin' a breather from her busy life (she sure deserves it) I thought I'd go back into the JUNKMARKET archives and highlight some of her amazing talent. This post was originally done on September 19, 2008. Love, love, love it! She didn't miss a thing! Hope you're enjoying your little time off Susie Q...but we sure do miss ya!
Yippety-skippety, autumn has arrived! For those of us who live in Minnesota, this is a most blessed time of year. The air is crisp, the colors are coming, and the Minnesota state bird (the mosquito) has left the building. OK, the bird has been replaced by the bee, but you can't have everything. It doesn't last long, so we encourage everyone to make the most of the beautiful fall harvest and the wonderful autumn weather.
How can you do this? We suggest conjuring up an outdoor habitat combining your flea finds from the summer, the best of what nature has to offer, and your junkingly good imagination. In honor of our new book, Junk Beautiful: Outdoor Edition (released in March of '2009,) we decided to give you a taste of the book's outdoorsy offerings. No, this is not an excerpt from the book, but spanking new material just to whet your whistle.
We decided to take a soft approach to this fall-themed entryway. We know y'all don't have a lot of time (believe me, we know!) so we wanted to create something that would work well for everyday living but also ride into Halloween like a witch on a broom. We call this beguiling elegance. A sense of eeriness lurks about, but nothing jumps out of the bushes and frightens the pumpkins out of you. Throughout the next month, we will feature more details on the items in this entryway (along with a host of other "better than popcorn ball" goodies.)
Before I get back to the junk pile, I want to extend a great big JMS thank you to all of our members. You are all amazing in your own special way and we truly appreciate your support, your willingness to share your creative ideas, and your friendship. We are looking forward to the good things to come! Happy Falloween!
