Junk & Keys

I don't drink coffee on a regular basis... however this morning I had 2 cups. So now I feel like my head my burst and I'm on the verge of bouncing off the walls. HA! So I figured I might as well put my energy to good use before I crash in a bit... So I got on Etsy and searched for Junk & Keys. I don't know why but even as a child I was fascinated with old keys. I had a pretty good collection and for me, the possiblilities were endless! I could hide one in the yard and *stumble* across it then set off on a journey to unlock chests filled with the lost treasures of the world!! Or perhaps my own secret garden or possibly a door to an unknown world. Whatever I was playing out in the acre of woods beside our house, my childhood was a blast. Add to that, the excitement of finding bits of broken metal and junk around the outside of my grandpa's workshop and you have an obsession in the making!

Sometimes when I'm feeling like I really want to make something but I'm lacking inspiration, I'll get on Etsy and search for "junk." The great thing about doing this is I can draw inspiration from things I see and head out to the workshop or dig in my "junk drawer" for supplies!! Simple and cheap! Gotta love that! So here are some great and inspiring things I found this morning! Check 'em out while I grab my keys and unlock  the secret door into my world of Craftville (not the most original name but ah well)!









And finally ~ making junk look even more beautiful!!

Cool--that box of aqua will come in handy this year THE COLOR is turquoise this year.

I want to let you know that I have a BIG give-a-way starting on Sunday and it will be really fun. I am calling it SPREADING THE LOVE--cuz I love my FOLLOWERS. There are lots of gifts, from really cool vendors. Each week there will be SEVERAL winners--that is right it will be going on all month long. So you can come back each week and leave me a comment, to put your name in.

You don't have to have a blog--you can e-mail me to enter your name.

Followers get their name in once and if you have my button on your side bar your name will go in 5 more times.

If you can double check your READER to see if you are getting my posts I would really appreciate it--for some reason Google has picked on me since the start of my blog and I always end up having them not post every few weeks.
