GIVEAWAY! Good Junk!


It's TIME!  Yeah, I know...we said when the blog reached 1000 followers.  Well, we can't take the anticipation any more....and seriously, don't you think blogs (although fun to look at) have taken a bit of a back burner to the convenience of Facebook.  And that's OK.

So....here we go!


Is this not the sweetest giveaway package???  Let's break it down.


The hammered spoon/hand stamped necklace was handmade by the talented Gretchen of Mimi-Toria's Designs.  She recreates from various vintage pieces and objects and her work is one of a kind.  She also does custom jewelry so give her site a look-see!





The adorable floral cup above...comes with the Organic Chai Tea below.  You'll be able to soothe away all your worries with this combo!


We're not done yet!  Two awesome magazines will come your way too!
 
We want to thank our VERY GENEROUS new friends for donating some of the prizes in our giveaway! Laura Caroon, Sarah McCurdy & Dan Nisbet of Midwest Junk fame donated the Midwest Junk Guide. It is a guide of 211 Vintage, Antique and Junk Stores and 26 Junkin Good Events located in North Dakota and Minnesota. It also has some junkin info and design ideas. Thanks Midwest Junk...You guys rock!
We would also like to thank our friends at FOLK magazine for donating a one year subscription. You will just adore the beautiful photography and inspiring ideas! Thanks, FOLK...We love you too!!
 


The first ever edition of Midwest Junk was created by three junk and treasure loving gurus and will guide you to all the best junk sales and vintage shops around the midwest.  The next issue is already in the works and will feature even more junk worthy stops for your roadtrips.  And a bonus...these pages also hold projects for you to try and good junk stories.



You will surely be able to melt an afternoon away with Folk magazine.  You'd better make a cup of Chai Tea before you sit down with this one!  And you'll be getting a YEAR SUBSCRIPTION!!




The pages within are purely drool worthy.  And contributing editors, like our friend Donna Williams of Funky Junk Interiors will keep your mind hopping on what projects to try next.



And MORE!  (no, not the dress form!)  Look at the beautiful scarf she's wearing.  It's new, but has the sweetest vintage appeal ever!



Won't you look great...wearing your vintage charm scarf, your sassy junk girl necklace and sipping tea...while you soak up some inspiration from Folk magazine and plan your next roadtrip with Midwest Junk!

  8. I am a follower and have attended every single Junkfest event! I always come home with some new addition to our house. So far my favorite one has been a vintage hurricane glass bowl with some shredded vintage papers in it. I actually have to many favorites and look forward to bringing home some new addtions this year! My latest painted room was dark chocolate with a pinot gregio color and black accented with a metallic silver. I love darker colors easier to keep clean from the kids dirty fingers. I hope I win!

  13. My favorite colors to decorate with (I don't have just one) are earthy reddish browns, teal or aqua greens and goldish yellows. My favorite thing about junkfest is that it gives me so many decorating ideas and gives me somewhere to go with my friend - just us girls. I have been following your blog since last year.

And Midwest Junk too...oh it really doesn't get any better. I am a follower here through google reader and I am a facebook fan. No I haven't made it to Junk Fest yet. Sure hope to this year.
    Thanks for the chance.

  65. Attending Junkfest is a religous ritual for me and my Hillsboro friends. We have been going for several years now and start getting excited with the first hint of fall. The Junk Girl neckace was made for me! I am anxious to shop for items for my garden shed, fondly referred to as "the clinic"where friends will gather, decorate, and enjoy "wine therapy."

  70. Hello! I'm a new follower. I was googling things to do in ND and found JunkFest. So happy to have found your blog - I love to junk! I've read a few of your posts. I'm so jealous of your factory cart coffee table (I'd love to have one too but only if it really is vintage/used). I also ohhh'd and ahhh'd when you hung your ironstone pitchers in the window!
