Junk Funk

Ugh. Is anyone else feeling the "blah" of winter yet? I know, it seems it just began (since we really haven't had much snow or cold until now)...but that's not what gets me. I just have a hard time when it's pitch black when I wake up and then also dark not too long after I return home from work.

The other part about it, is that it makes it really hard for a girl to "junk"! I've been lacking in my good finds lately. I thought some of you may be in the same "junk funk" that I am in, so I thought I would share one of my secrets. You wanna know a place you can find some unexpected junks and rustic feeling items?? Gordman's. It's totally either hit or miss, but oh man--is it fun when you get a hit! And isn't that how real junking works anyway??!

A lot of the stuff that you find in my house, as well as my mom and sister's, actually comes from Gordman's. It's cute stuff at a great price, which is always hard to pass up! Here are some examples:
A cute "egg" basket. Hard to see here, but it has a worn, red, rubber handle. Now I just need to think of what to put in it--any suggestions?? Heidi got this for me for Christmas, as well as the other goody that you see below...

A cute crate box. You can find one of these in each household of the women in my family!

I loved this "Home" sign and I was able to snag it for a really good deal!!
Some other fun things that I got for Christmas (I got a lot of fun stuff, but forgot to take pics of some of it before I packed it away for next year's Christmas decorating!):
You might recognize this from my post about the craft show that I want to this past fall. I was so exited to finally get it from Heidi for Christmas!! :)

I LOVED my rustic letter my mom got me!
So there you have it...those are some of my most recent fun things. What about you? Where do you go during the winter to get your junk fill??



  1. I go to Maggie's garage to visit all the past junk finds. :)

  2. LOVE your latest find at Gordman's, your "home" picture on your shelf. Oh so cute! Also love where you put your "V". You do good job. :)

  3. Oh, also I love your ball jar on your shelf. That looks perfect there and is the perfect addition to your shelf. Amazing what a simple ball jar can do. Oh how I LOVE junk! p.s. Janice, did you REALLY write your comment at 5:00 AM? I'm dead asleep at 5:00 in the morning much less awake enough to be on the computer. Please tell me that is a mistake. :)

  4. Agh! I know the feeling Hannah! It's withdrawal! :)

  5. Luann, I think the time is off on the blog somehow. I was definitely not out of bed at 5 a.m.!
