flea market finds May 2015-9285

“Sunny… It’s going to be a good weekend to hit the flea market…” I was telling myself that for at least a week straight. But can I admit something here and now? I love the thrill of the hunt! But the early morning wake up? Not so much. Once upon a time, I use to flea market […]

Ahh!! I am home from my travels! And as you can imagine, I have a little catching up to do. And so much to tell you. But honestly, I missed creating so much, I got right into it my first day home. Why hotels aren’t yet outfitted with workshops I do not know. BUT… new towns […]

Sky watching at its best

flying into vegas Funky Junk Interiors-007

I will be the first to admit, when it comes to flights, I’m like a kid in a candy store. My seats are always by windows. A window is a must! Not only does it provide 50% less elbow knocking space, I get the best view in the house for no additional cost. My very fav part […]

The opulence in Las Vegas

Las Vegas-007

Today was our first day crusing the strip in Las Vegas. And I will say, this country mouse is seeing city lights in a whole new way! Las Vegas does not mess around in the form of opulence. (glass ceiling) I’m trying to grasp what Las Vegas really is. And in a nutshell, it’s about […]

In preparation for The Olde Farmhouse vintage market, I’ve been playing with the old fence wood I collected a while back. Remember the lottery win post HERE? First I needed to find it a home.

The easiest way to clean reclaimed wood

fence board toolboxes-9088

So… remember all that great old fence wood I came home with not long ago? At one point I attempted to use a scrub brush to clean them. But after huffing and puffing over 1 square foot, (I’m too old for that nonsense…) I got the pressure washer involved. Best. Decision. EVER! Pressure washing the reclaimed wood […]

Motivation through pressure washing the patio

pressure wash-8922

I think it’s safe to say, some days it’s just really hard to get fired up about doing stuff. Upon doing a sweep with my eyes in every possible direction, undone things can feel like too much.  Unfortunately, in these cases, it’s a matter of getting out of the chair, and forcing myself. How spoiled […]
