Your attention please.

Like I was saying...(or was I?). Oh my. My. Heart. Is. All. Afluttery! I can hardly contain myself. Our little blog has been getting quite the attention recently and my JunkSisters and I just can't wait to tell all! Two wonderful things, unforeseen by us.

The first is that we've been asked to enter our JunkFest blog in a new and exciting competition amongst decorating/junking bloggers. So You Think You Can Decorate? 10 Decorators 10 Challenges 10 Weeks

Now doesn't THAT sound exciting???!!! It's brought to us by Alchemy Junk, a great blog to check out.

I have to say, the competition is FIERCE! In fact, I don't consider them "competition", but sincerely feel honored to be considered worthy to be in their company. Here are the other nine decorators...(and believe me, their blogs are wonderful!)

The Shabby Chic Cottage
Flea Market Trixie
Welcome to the Turner Farm
Shabby Nest
WhisperWood Cottage
All Things Thrifty

  1. Does anyone else see those little boxes in my post? What the ?? Hmmm. Posting puts quite the strain on my brain. But YOU'RE WORTH IT!


  2. Congrats on your double honors! You girls have earned them! I look forward to the SYTYCD fun!


    P.S. As far as the little boxes, there is probably just something funky in your html. If you want, copy and email the html code for that post to me and I will see if I can fix it for you.

  4. Nice work!!! I'm so proud of you guys!

  5. Hey Missy--great white hunter! Have I got something for you to consider doing with the antlers that are not "trophy mount" quality!

    I'm a basketmaker who specializes in weaving ANTLER BASKETS! I've been creating these one-of-a-kind original designs since 1990 and can make something terrific for you with the "less than perfect" harvested or shed antlers you come up with.

    And if you'd care to purchase some already made, I also have a selection of those on my website. Take a look at my blog and also my website, then give me a shout!
