Fabulous Friday WINNER! ALVN

Thank you to all of you that entered! I always feel badly that only one person gets to win.  But the good news is, there will be another giveaway next Friday….hmmm, I wonder what it will be?  Also I want to thank Gina at Feather your Nest for such a wonderful giveaway.  She sells all that stuff in her boutique…….I guess I could have just said online store, but I saw Julie & Julia last night and I think Julia would have said Boutique.

On to the winner!

This gal LOVES vintage. She LOVES junk!  So it’s only appropriate that she ended up winning this contest.  She has two blogs.  Both full of eye candy.  Whisper Wood Cottage and junkologie.


She has wonderful photos of places like this……….a yard sale……..I could just do a cartwheel down that drive way.


Cool shots of junk.  She makes it all look so good.


It’s all about your using your imagination on how to use old junk.  A bowl of type writer keys?  Love it.


She’s nice to show us her junk loot from time to time.  See that heater vent looking thing?  I wouldn’t know what to do with it……..DSC03926

Hmmmm………what did she figure out?  Oooh, I like the pretty lights…….what is it?


She has turned it into a bedside table lamp.  Is she the smartest junker around? 

DSC04159 It’s people like her that makes me hunt blogs.  Seeing other ideas that I wouldn’t have thought of in a million years………or if I did, I may have thought it looked goofy.  Like, I would have NEVER thought to use old 45s as table decor.  If this is old hat to you……sorry, but I have NEVER seen this.  I am already trying to figure out if I can get away with something like this for Thanksgiving.  Probably not……but another time for sure.DSC05379-wtrmk She has a wonderful before and after for her bedroom.  This is obviously the before.


After! She shows you the whole process…….she used an inspiration notebook…….you know the kind where you tear out magazine photos of places you like and keep it in a notebook? 

DSC06287-wtrmk       HEY!  I have that Character plaque in my home.  It’s the last thing you see before heading out the front door………just like this one is the last photo on my post.    DSC04405-wtrmk

Thank you all again for entering.  More giveaways every Friday. 


Because of these nice folks, I can sit on my bum and write blog posts!

Thank you so much! How exciting!!

I just don't think some people should have all that talent. It needs to be more evenly dispersed to people like me who have none. Amazing! I love her bedside lamp!

Oh, so I don't forget, I gave you an award for being super creative. I think you are swell, so you get to brag to the world about your swellness! Or at least to all of bloggerville. At any rate, come by my blog to get it.

Amy (ALVN), I have to say, is as sweet, fun and all around good gal, as she is creative! She definitely deserves to be featured. Way to go Amy!
