JunkFest...72 days and counting










Time is passing by quickly...only 72 days till JunkFest 2009 and there's much to do. It's time to grit my teeth, get a cup of coffee and get to work!

An exciting day for me...Amy at Whisperwood Cottage had named me as one of her featured followers. I am very honored! Whisperwood Cottage is a wonderful blog and has been a great inspiration to me. And that's not all...Amy has also honored me with a Kreativ Blogger Award. How sweet! Now I know I owe an apology because we've been awarded a few things before and even Andrea has named me as a recipient and I didn't quite find the time to follow through with the rules of the award. So I'll give it a go now. The rules of the Kreativ Blogger Award are to name and thank the person who gave you the award (named above), list 7 things about yourself, and forward the award on to 7 new recipients. And comment on the recipient's blogs the let them know they have an award.

Now, this is the hard part. Seven interesting things about me. I can come up with many more than 7 THINGS about me but "interesting"? Not sure about that one. Here goes.
1. I've lived in the same county all my life. (except for one summer I stayed with my Great Aunt)

2. I tell everyone I'm 5 feet tall. Lie. We won't talk about my weight here.

3. There are crumbs on my counter....ALL the time. And I don't care, because I've learned there are more important things in life than nit-picking.

4. I've learned the hard way that no one, I mean no one, is immune to tragedy and crime. Both have hit my family like a brick.

5. From the experiences in #4 I've learned that I have the strongest family in the world. Life happens. Our responsibility is to pick up, move on, and LIVE.

6. My blogging hours are from 10:00pm to 1:30 am. Sometimes I blog with only one eye open.

7. Junking is one of my most favorite hobbies. Some of my others are quilting and camping with my family.

There, I did it. For tonight I name all the Junk-Fest followers who have the letter M in their blog name. (sorry, too late to link everyone) Again THANKS, to all of you. For the award, for reading our blog, and for sharing the love of junk. Now either get to work...or go to bed. ;)



  1. Nice blog, Missy!
    You are TOO FUNNY!!! (...but with a few lessons we can all learn.) You do have a strong family...cherish that., get going on all that awesome junk!!! :)

  2. PS...Is there ANY paint left at the store for me!!??

  3. Love your post, Missy! You are a STRONG person and I so admire you for that!

    Oh, PLEASE don't mention how many days there are until Junk Fest - I am a wreck the way it is - can't bare to see it in black and white! (I hate that day counter, by the way)!

    Holy paint, woman! And I thought I had alot...guess NOT!

  4. Glad to know more about you! I can relate to your #4 & #5. And today I needed the reminder in #5!
    Always enjoy the JunkFest post!

  5. What resources you've got to make junk into treasures and collectables! It's cool to see *behind the scenes* just a bit. ;-)

    Congrats on the award/s! I'm not at all surprised. ;-) And great minds must think alike, I guess. I've been SO behind on my blogging efforts...and thought I might start anew by finally complying to Cassie's 6 Things tag. Sometime. Today. ;-)

    Happy Independence Day weekend, Miss! Hugs.

  6. Great post, Missy! Loved learning about you. I am glad I am not the only one who has perpetual crumbs on the counter! Will you be able to come to Oronoco in August? I'd love to come to JunkFest in September!! Does anybody have a room for me to stay? :)


  7. Well, now I know why I can't find American Accents spray paint anymore!!!

    Amy, you can bunk at my house! Junkers always welcomed!

  8. Oh My gosh! I just might have to drive over to Junk Fest! Seriously! I'll be in Fargo this weekend and am wondering about going the extra to Detroit Lakes to the flea there. Have you been and is it worth it?
