Join MMS and myself in the Copy Me Challenge!

 You know my style by now, right?

Pretty rustic, junk accessories galore, with plenty of salvaged materials with the dirt basically blown off for good measure. (washing ruins a great patina you know)

 Now, can you guess who’s style this is?

Why, it’s Miss Mustard Seed herself, of course! Her look is unmistakable! In my eyes, it’s refined vintage glamour. 🙂

Let’s take another quick peek at the differences in style, shall we?

Ok, I can’t resist. One more…. this one’s REAL good. 🙂

Hard to tell the two styles apart, isn’t it? 🙂

Do you think she could style something totally salvaged or rusty like I do?

Better yet, do you think I could jewel up or refine something to emulate her style?

What about YOU?

Do you think you could mimic both our looks?

Well, here’s your chance to get in on a fun challenge!

You’re officially invited to two

link parties!

~ When? ~

We are both fast approaching a milestone that has everything to do with you, so we want to celebrate with you!

Watch both Miss Mustard Seed’s and Funky Junk’s follower widgets. Once one of them flips over to 4000, one party will begin! And the other one will soon follow when that meter flips to 4000!

~ The Theme ~

This one will be so fun! 

Funky Junk’s theme will be MY salvaged junk style. 

And Miss Mustard Seed’s party will be HER upscale vintage style.

Copy us for a day!

~ The twist ~

Oh yesss… we must have a twist!

I’m officially challenging Miss Mustard Seed to copy me for a day. I want her to create something in my rustic style to see what she can come up with.

And then I’m going to feature it at MY party. 🙂 Heehee!


She’s gonna get me back. She’ll be featuring how I, junker me,  morphs a something or other into a sophisticated creation with my own two rust lovin’ hands.

Will the style confusion have her belting out “Oh Canad-eh!” while she runs around throwing rusty junk on her neighbor’s yards? Hey… she may land the treasure of her dreams from their own curb! Go MMS go!

Honestly? I’m not sure I can pull this off. To freshen up my rust with a fresh coat of paint, complete with a glaze, then add something sparkly, and maybe even throw in a labor of love kind of music sheet wreath…  (blowing dirt off stuff is a little quicker!) I’m kinda freaking out abit here.. but I’m willing to try if you are! 

~ How to play ~

1) Funky Junk’s party – create a new post or link up an old one that reflects Funky Junk’s style and have it ready to post anytime after my meter flips over 4000!

Update: both challenges will start after both widgets flip over 4000.

2) Miss Mustard Seed’s party – create a new post or link up an old one that reflects MMS’ style and have it ready to post on her blog anytime after her meter flips over 4000!

But you’ll have to watch both blogs. They’ll start ANYTIME after a meter flips past 4000. So, follow along so you don’t miss out!

~ Prizes! ~

AND!! There will be a nifty prize for the best emulator on each blog with something from each of our own personal styles!

  1. You guys are hilarious! I’m a big follower of both of your blogs, and it’s really fun to see you both encouraging each other on.

    Gooooo 4,000!


  2. OMYGOSH…this has GOT to be one for the blogging books. How fun…I mean, THIS..IS..GONNA..BE..HILARIOUS.
    I am going back and announce the fun oon my sidebar..and THEN..I am going to get to work on both projects…
    woo hooness….

  3. Oh, this is going to be fun!
    I think you might even need to pull out a certain box of fabric and trims and make a MMS type pillow to go on whatever you end up creating. 🙂 (I’m not gonna give up ya know. :))

    Both of you have made great strides this year, and it’s fabulous that you are cheering each other on like thise. Can’t wait to see what you come up with!

  4. Oh, I’m SO in!
    I love both of your styles.
    I swear, I was standing in Home Depot the other day right next to a selection of bolts and I felt inspired. I thought of you!

    Heading over to MMS to check out her follower numbers 🙂

  5. Hmmmm, MMS was the first blog I started following and FJI was the second. Is there a theme in my house that I don’t know about?

    I so enjoy both the blogs I’m just not sure I could emulate either, you two are incredibly talented.

    I know this is way ahead of things but maybe the next challange, a room created using the combined talents of both ladies??? I could so your two styles in lets say a bedroom!?

    I’ll be watching and admiring.

  6. Ok Funky Junk…Now you’ve gone and done it…A CHALLANGE…4000 FOLLOWERS? I’m already one of them…I’m putting my treasures together for you. Go to my blog I mentioned YOU!
    Take Care,
    Mel’s Cabin

  7. Great idea! I can’t wait to watch the two of you do this. As for me? I can only dream of doing something half as good as either of you. I may give it a try. I’ve got a couple of things I’m thinking about.

  8. Wow… this sounds like a lot of fun!! You’re already over 4,000… watch out!! What about SNS??? I’m already set to link up tomorrow with the post I put out today. I wonder if it will work for this party… I have a lot of junkin’ style in it… lol!
    Congrats on reaching 4,000 followers, Donna… WOW!!… and congrats (if I haven’t already told ya) on your feature in the January issue of Romantic Homes!! You so deserve it, my friend!
    Jo 🙂

  9. 23 Jo, SNS is going on as planned! This party won’t begin until next week sometime so you have all weekend to play for this. 🙂

    Facebookers hear updates a little quicker, so if you wish to keep up by the minute, come on over! (widget on sidebar)


  10. Tooooooooooooo funny! I don’t go from room to room, but from area to area. If I were to move my camera a bit too far in one direction or another…I just know I’d hear HOWLS followed by many Hail Marys and quite possibly a 911 call to the Vatican for a vat of holy water…my messes are JUST that sinful! ;}

    m ^..^

  11. I love primitives….so I’ve been following your blog since???anyway I am new to blogville and don’t have a clue how to “link” any thing but cuffs…..oh my! I did turn a blackeye pea crate into a photo display of sorts… totally inspired by you….I’ll try to figure out the link thing
