read

Welcome to Party Junk 303 – an upcycled link party Every Friday, 7 PM through Sunday 11 PM Pacific Hey everyone! Glad to have you back! I didn’t really make much this past week, as cleaning my workshop was my focus. So it’s nice to vicariously live through these creative junk projects.  Here are a few highlights […]

9 – Stacking reclaimed wood for airflow, and hiding stuff with a faux chest

read

Vision watching a cartoon. All these looney tune characters are trying to stuff an itty bitty building full with heaps of reclaimed wood. So they toss huge bundles over their shoulders, and darting at road runner speed, they huff and they puff and they PUSH the stuff in. Upon impact, the wildly bulging building separates at the seams for just […]

A major farmhouse reno at my childhood farm – Part 2

read

This story is a continuation of A bikeride to my land with a new partner.  In a nutshell, my son and I had gone on an unexpected VERY long bike ride, and my heart pined to cruise past my childhood farm. But I was hesitant to see it for a multitude of reasons. When we ended up heading […]

A bike ride found my beloved sunset

read

I have a little confession to make. I’ve been trying not to miss ‘my beach’. It probably does NOT help that THIS is my iPhone background now, does it?! 🙂 This was the last shot I took of the beach before we head home. I truthfully cried over this one. Well anyway, the last few days, I actually […]

7 – a MUCH cleaner closet and a conversation with myself

read

Well friends, the purging and cleaning is still going strong… big time. It’s actually kinda taken over in a good way. Most evenings after dinner are spent gutting and bagging. I’m working up such a sweat over it, it actually feels like a real workout. There are always bags or boxes of stuff being piled up somewhere. […]

The shed encased with its fall shawl

read

Yawing to the beginning of a new day, I always like to glance outside before stumbling down the hallway towards the caffeine machine. The two cats are generally snoozing along side me somewhere, so after I scratched behind their ears, I stood up to take in the view. Overcast… normal. Wet… very normal. Green… oh yes. Quite […]
