...with a Junk Junk here & a Junk Junk there

Does collecting Junk make me a Junkie? To junk or not to junk? That is the question - and of course only has one correct answer....YES! Oh, and please forgive all the weeds.  We've had so...

My Kind of Aquarium!

Another salvaged window.  This one must have been from a bathroom or something because it is small and had no cross pieces.  It's one pane of glass.  The glass is from the scrap bin...

Kiss Me Frog.... or Else!

Oh how sad looking at my beautiful tree! We got hit with a tornado this Sunday in High Point, North Carolina - and this tree is now in a pile (massive pile) at the curb along with everyone elses trees, siding, roof tiles, etc. This picture is definitely much nicer than it looks now. Now it is a mud pit with a tree stump. :(

Re: Recycled Window

OKFarm: Very carefully!

Re: Interactive Kids' Art Project

Way cool. Something to add to my Garage Sale search list!

Renwoman: No pattern! I mostly cut and place the pieces. Sometimes I just keep moving glass around until I like the way it looks. I usually have an idea in my head and might sketch it out - it never looks like my sketch though! Thanks for loving it! This site is awesome for boosting egos! Wahoo! Thanks JunkMarketStyle (Thumbs up & a cheesy grin!)
