rusty heart source HERE
Your links for the Copy Me Challenge have truly left me speechless.
Allow me to explain why.
It’s a complete honor you’d think I’d have some of these wonderful treasures in my own home.
Homemade trinkets created with your hands in an effort to emulate what you think I’d make.
Trust me. I wouldn’t have thought of 30% of some of your amazing creations.
And then there’s the one of a kind finds with the most delicious chippy textures everywhere you look.
I’m truly in love with so many new ideas I have on my to do list that YOU created!
Everyone at this party has played a special part in inspiring ME. I truly think I’m the winner here.
I mean, you’ve never met me. Yet you’re getting me!
Some of your replications are near identicals to what I’ve had in my mind’s eye forever and haven’t even made yet. Wasn’t I just talking about old white vintage doors for desks in my office?!?
And you’ve brought out your rusty finest, even when it wasn’t ‘you’. Just for me.
And you’ve shown me so many things that I haven’t thought of making, yet I’d have in my home in a heartbeat.
Know what rusts my bucket the most? That you’ve created things that others have told you they DIDN’T like. However you decided to step beyond that and be proud of what you do love. No holds barred.
Some of you found the challenge difficult. Yet you pushed through it and kept trying. And succeeded! With flying vibrant colous I might add.
Oh my, did you have me envying so very many of you! Those junky objects of desire had me reeling. You just hit the nail on the head countless times.

You’re even creating junk pieces that offer you memories.
And you’re re purposing things to make newer cooler things. All in the name of a junk style only a junker could love.
Didn’t see you up there? Do NOT despair. Those selections were random loves. There’s a whole lotta goodness in that link party I didn’t even touch yet! Wish I had the time to feature all of you.
But I think you get where I’m coming from. I’ve visited all your links and I’ve enjoyed all your stories. And can I just say…
All your junk deserves to win. Every single rusty chippy bit of it! 🙂
Thank YOU for the incredible inspiration you’ve given me this weekend.
And thank you for taking the time to challenge yourself to try something new. And even for being honest enough to admit it wasn’t you!
Keep on junkin, friends! And adding your links. Deadline is Friday, 7pm Pacific.

So… did you find the challenge rewarding? Fun? Difficult? Did you learn anything from the experience?
