Welcome to Party Junk 294 – an upcycled link party
Every Friday, 7 PM through Sunday 11 PM Pacific
Hello weekend junk fanatics!
I admit, I did not post much this week. I meant to… but with school not yet in session, we were busy drinking in the last few days of freedom. We are going to miss our late night movies and mid morning sleep ins… who else is breaking all the rules this summer?
This week’s question – the future of this link party… your thoughts.
I’ve been loving featuring spotlights hard on FB over the weekend, which appear to drive lots of interest to your and my site. YES!
But I’d love your opinion.
Link parties throughout the web generally follow the same format. Features, then link up. I’m a little anxious to spin this one with a fresh twist, but I can’t think of how yet. I want to add value to your reading AND value to those linking up in a unique way.
A good success needs to give value to the reader AND bloggers, so I want to ensure this one is currently doing that, or could do better, so…
As a reader, how can showcasing the best of the best of others help you? Do you like the current format? Don’t care for the friday link parties at all? What do you tune in for?
As a blogger, is there something special I can do that would kick things up a notch? Or love it the way it is?
Basically put, what do you love most / least about the Friday link parties? Feel free to add your honest insight in comments below, as a reader AND blogger perspective. Thanks!
On with the junk!
Although I didn’t do much this week, I did start the week off with a new project of a signed up handmade branch ladder…
and the kickoff of a new stencil collection!
Back to you and your wonderful upcyclec projects, you are making it hard to select which of you to feature! My jaw drops every weekend. But here’s a few favs from last week’s party…
Vintage window seedpacket art, by Sadie Seasongoods
It’s my belief that this works SO WELL because they are two outdoor elements teamed up.
Add hooks along the bottom, and you have funcional art for keys or even hanging your garden tools. So pretty!
Who wouldn’t be more inclined to play games on this cutie?! Study the shape of the legs… they are horse perfect.
Spoon jewelry pendant by Thrifty Rebel Vintage
Costume jewelry takes on a whole new level when attached to bent spoons. Charming!
This one had me at coffee. With metal, pallet wood, and my own amazing (if I do say so myself….) coffee stencil, this one is a layered beauty!
Game Board Coffee Table Upcycle by Saturdays Vintage Finds
Team up an actual game with a base, and you have an instant game table… literally! Doesn’t this add a fun punch of colour?
Barn wood jewelry hanger, by Making it In the Woods
Don’t throw out those quirky wood pieces that are seemingly good for nothing. Look what this one became!
I can also visualize a few more layered underneath. Gorgeous!
Look closely… the top is a TRAY! How genius and gorgeous is this coffee table idea? I’m encouraged to dust my own off from storage after seeing this beauty..
Which are you inspired to try?
