Welcome to the long awaited Copy Me Challenge kickoff!
On Funky Junk, your assignment was to attempt to create my salvaged junk style.
And, this is also where I show you Miss Mustard Seed’s version of a little funky junk. 🙂 Let’s see how she made out… take it away friend!

I woke up this morning with a sudden craving for coffee, chick flicks and flannel jackets. I started saying “eh” after every sentence and found beauty in rusty bolts and gears.
(By the way, my husband thought of a name for Donna’s jewelry line…Rust Lust!)
After raiding my neighbor’s dumpster (not really, but it’s what Donna would do!), this is what I put together.
First of all, to emulate Donna’s style, I needed lots of layers of texture. She loves her twiginess and natural elements, so I made sure to add that in.
I needed a “Donna-worthy” back drop and a chippy old door with rusty hinges was perfect. A gracefully pointed shoe form brings a little quirkiness to the arrangement.
…and I knew Donna would go nuts over the threading and rust.
Family photos are casually tucked into the arrangement to add personality and a sense of history.
An antique fan brings in a little funky-junk shine, but still has the perfect amount of rust.
I tucked some twine in an insert for an antique tool box, again to add texture.
Hinges and pinecones fill another cubby of the insert.
I couldn’t put together a Donna arrangement without including a meat grinder! An antique ruler and pair of scissors are tucked inside.
I knew she would also love the typography.
I didn’t have any bolts hanging around my house, so these wooden spools are a good stand in.
I dug this crate out of my basement and didn’t notice the advertisement on it until I was editing the pictures. Isn’t it perfect?
It’s filled with feed sack pillows and a wool throw.
So, how’d I do?
Now it’s your turn!

How did she do?!? I’m moving over there to have THAT rusty junk. That’s how she did. 🙂 Why, I’m mighty proud of you for stocking this stuff, MMS! I am so in love with those scissors…
LOVED that video! My fav part was the dumpster diving haul. She totally nailed the coffee thing too. 🙂
