This weekend’s theme:

~ ‘what is it?’ junk ~

I have this funny little red doodad that I found when I went junk’in at a welder’s back 40.

I thought maybe I’d make a towel bar out of it one day until I decided to mount it on my signature wall in my work area. Oh right.. I haven’t shown you that yet either, have I? 🙂


 This area is located in my ‘sign shop’ downstairs. The signatures are from a great group of sign folk friends that came by for a workshop I was a part of. I asked them to sign my wall as a wonderful memory maker AND something cool to look at. 🙂

(I’ll do a full reveal of the room when it’s clean complete)

So what did I end up using this strange rusty red artifact for anyway?

It’s a tape dispenser tool holder.


With loads of junk style. 🙂

So, anyone know what it actually is?!?

Here are a couple others I shared during round one of SNS # 66 What is it? junk #1

That’s what I love about weird junk. Your imagination is the only rule maker to go by.

Have you decorated with an ‘I have no idea what it is’ junk object? Please share it in this weekend’s 3rd themed linkup!

~ SNS blah blah linkup rules ~

 1. DIY home projects only please! If you link up for any other reason (selling, inviting to your own link party or giveaway etc) your link will be removed. Items for sale may be linked up if you show your DIY in tutorial style on your blog and your main purpose is to share the technique.

2. Please link up your intended post, NOT your blog homepage url. (post, then click the title of your post, then cut and paste that url)

 3. Please put a link in your post (button or text) that leads back to the party so others can see what’s up. (see BUTTONS label under main blog header)

4. For Home Decor and Crafts, Sewing, Cooking, please link projects up that are new to SNS and/or within 1 month old. Repeat linkups will be removed.

The 3rd weekly themed link may have older posts and not brand new to SNS and will remain open for your new additions at any time. Click HERE for the main list.

If you can’t decide which category to enter yours in, please just pick ONE and go with it. It’s all good!

 5. By linking up to SNS, you approve to being highlighted on FJI Facebook, added to the themed linkups and for possible future features on Funky Junk Interiors’ blog without additional permission required.

 Come on over and see if we’re talking about you this weekend. 🙂

  1. I love a good challenge! I don’t know, it seems that a welder could place more than one item at a time on the bars and then turn the handle to work on them. Really, I have no clue, can’t wait to see what it is! Thanks for hosting, have a nice weekend Donna. 🙂

  2. Thank you for hosting.
    I have a page on my site that lists more than 300 hops, memes, and photo challenges… some for each day of the week. Yours is listed there, too! Check under the header for the link to that page. I’ve also started a BlogFrog community that focuses on hops, carnivals, memes, and photo challenges. Go to to visit & participate.

  3. PS – I apologize – my first link went to the wrong place. I think I even PUT IT in the wrong place.

    I’m a new follower & hope you’ll visit my place.

  4. Just found your blog. Totally love it. I hope I linked my project to the right spot.
    I’m going right now to put your blog on our sidebar. It’s so fun (your blog I mean, not our sidebar).


  5. Hey!

    I had written an entirely different post for today. I was checking your linky party theme and thought Wow! I have a lot of junk. Think I will show some!!! lol So, just posted. Hope you like it!!! lol Thanks for hosting this fun party!:)

  6. Oh I have the perfect piece of junk for this party. I hope I get a chance to get a post done for it so I can link up. What fun! I’m sure you’ll figure out tons of things to do since you have the weekend by yourself. Enjoy the time!

  7. I don’t know what it is…does the handle/crank thing at the bottom turn? Whatever it is, I like how you’re using it! Anyone who has spent any time on your blog knows that YOU would find a way to make anything useful…and make it look killer at the same time!

    and, I totally screwed up and linked stuffed pork tenderoin to the what is it? LOL so sorry…please delete if you can. I’ve done that twice this week.

    Have a great day,
