I got this door form the Country Junk sale last fall.  It had the perfect crusty handle for a scarf bow...or wreath.
Blue jars...again...
This vintage foot board was a Country Junk find too :)
It needed a little something...so I came up with this hinge banner.  BRR...
This aqua ladder keeps the comfy blankets handy.
I couldnt resist adding little stacked junk snow person.  

Its been cold here...which makes it much easier to cozy up at home and plow through the list of things to do.  One of the things on my list is always "simplify"...which is hard for a collector like me!  This is what I am calling my "Simply Cozy" winter mantel.  This is as "simple" as I get folks...

Hope all is well in your lives and your 2014 has begun in a happy and joyful way.

I will be taking some time over the next few weeks, not only to introduce your new contributor (and maybe more), but to also re-introduce the veterans here at JMS. I am so lucky to work with such a talented group of people editors, contributors, and members alike. Give yourselves a big round of applause!

Today I am re-introducing JMS contributor, Laurel Putman. I have had the true pleasure of working with Laurel in many different ways...here on the site, at big shows, and smaller trunk shows. She is always creative beyond belief and better yet she has a knack for always putting a smile on the faces of those around her. She is indeed a very special lady! Thanks, Laurel for being you and for sharing here at JMS!

This post is quintessential Laurel...thoughtful, beautiful, and approachable. I personally think she does get simple as much as she gets cozy! This post as we say in the magazine industry...just makes you wanna be there!

Please take a moment to go through this post...it will leave you wanting to see more from Laurel. Also, while your here give her a big shout out!

About Laurel:

I have a passion for decorating, collecting and repurposing all things chippy, rusty and crusty, hence, the name of my little business Chipping with Charm. I sell a little bit of this and that. Basically whatever I can get my hands on to embellish with crystals, chippy hardware or old keys. At the moment I am loving projects with sheet music and old book pages, but really nothing is off limits once an idea hits. I think pretty soon my sweet husband is going to put a lock on the garage door before another one of his rusty hinges or old tools gets a new life as a flower or picture holder. What can I say? I just cant stop myself!

I have the joy of selling my wares here and there as well as the honor of sharing my ideas as a Contributor on JUNKMARKET Style.
