July Junky Finds

I have been out junking as much as I possibly can the past few weeks, filling up my inventory for the Latah Market at Chaps/Cake. So I then found myself faced with a garage packed with things to work on, clean, repurpose and mark. All of this is good, now that my teacher husband is done with summer school and I have more time. I've been spending more days working on my Funky Junk work, which some days this week has felt alot like play. I've been spending lots of quality time with my furniture and finds, a few of which I've pictured here. There is more. Much more.

My oldest, a seven year old, told me Monday, "We're more important than your stuff." I think he got that from a Berenstein Bears episode, but point taken. So we had a talk under the cherry tree, on a bench I found junking, about how I love them and miss them, but it's okay for Mommy to work. And that I'm just out in the garage.


  1. Can't wait to see your treasures...I've been spending much time on much junk and hearing a few complaints...but, its from my cutie pie hubby that makes it all happen for me. I'll use your line and see if works. See ya soon. Glad & Cel/Junebug Design

  2. I love the pic of you and your boys! Great treasures.

  3. Cute stuff. I love that measuring cup! I can so relate with the kids. My daughter said to me this last week, "Mom, you're so happy when you are at your shows!" I think she understands that this is our play time, but we love them too! I'm planning on stopping by the Latah Market on Sunday...see ya there! Good luck this weekend!

  4. Love your stuff Hollie!! I am headed to the Vintage Barn on Saturday but just learned about the Latah show. I'm going to try super hard to get out there, especially since I know you'll be there.

    Hope you're having a wonderful day!


  5. Such great pics -- love the one of you and boys (Haden's pose is priceless)! And the measuring cup is super-cool too! I'm so happy with my bench from you from your "pre-sale" :)

  6. Yea girls!! So good to hear from my fellow junker ladies, and I know you all understand the love & drive it takes to pull it all off! Hope all of you have an awesome weekend, and great shows Junebug & Sophias!
    Hope to see most of you;)


Hey, aren't you sweet!
