Re: It's a Wrap - Part Five

This is my favorite one - just gorgeous! I love all your crafty wrapping!

Merry Christmas to you, Sue - and happy holidays to all my junkin' friends!

Re: Trash to Treasure Clock Tutorial

Very cool! As a newb, the "tutorial" aspect of your post is much appreciated, Gretchen! I learn a lot from all you guys!

Re: How to Create Sterling Silver Ornaments on the Cheap

Hi Sue--
This has to be my favorite thing you've ever done! I adore these ornaments! They're so elegant looking. (I like the slightly tarnished look better, too!) I'll be on the lookout for orphaned lids from now on! Merry Christmas!

Re: Hope Inside...

My gosh. Laurel - you are SO creative! These are really charming. Merry Christmas!

Re: Hostess Gifts with a Junk Twist

Ooooh, Amy - I love everything, but my favorite is the vintage muff as a wine cozy! I'll have to invite you to all my parties if these are the hostess gifts you come up with! Happy Holidays!

Re: "Mommy Central" with Junky Details...

Hi Laurel--
I LOVE "Mommy Central"! Every mom needs a setup like this! (And the phone charging station is perfect!) :-)

Re: Thank You One and All

Oooh me! Me! I brought the blanc de blancs and some of the flowers! I read this post on the 20th, Sue, and I had always felt a little bad that I hadn't MADE something to bring you! I must not have gone all the way through the pics when I first read it, 'cause there is my bottle of wine at the end! Yay! Next time, I promise I'll try to junk it. (AND bring wine. How's that?)

Re: Springfield Extravaganza - some of our stuff...Part III

Such gorgeous stuff! My favorite is the buttons in the paperweight. Did you re-make an old paperweight, or can you buy empty ones? Love it!

Re: Almost Ready For Our 7th Fall Country Junk Sale Friday 10/2 and Saturday 10/3 from 9-5

Laurel, you are so lucky that your husband likes to go junking with you! I'm jealous!

Wish I could go... have to work tomorrow then driving up north to close the cabin. :-(

Re: 34 Birdhouses in total...I don't know if that's enough

Your yard must be fabulous - I love having birds all around! Such cute birdhouses! I love the white one on the post too. I've coveted one like that two years in a row at a craft fair I've gone to, but it was $125!!!

Re: Reel-ly Fun New Plant Stand...

You got some really great stuff at Junk Bonanza! Love what you did with the reel. It was fun meeting you at Sue's!

Re: My Simple Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday or Friday Project!

Lani, I love these! And the "no-work" project is my kind of project.... :-) My fave is the chandelier table. It's absolutely beautiful!

Re: Thank You One and All

We had a blast, as always. LOVED the tour of the house! Soooo much fun! :-D

Re: Bed Spring Candle Holder

Absolutely adorable! I never could've come up with that in a million years! Love the idea of spray painting the whole thing brushed nickel too.


The most brilliant touch of all is how it's placed on the mantel (or shelf) ON ITS SIDE with the little egg cup candles in front of it. Gorgeous!

Re: An old window gets a new job...message central!

I ADORE that! Hmm... I think I know where I can get an old window frame too.... *off to look*
