as many of you have discovered, there is a blogger out there who has her finger on the pulse of junk decor. funky junk donna along with junkmarketstyle have been an inspiration to me to fine tune and re-connect to my style-love of old, vintage, rusty, galvanized junk.
about five or so years ago, i went through a period of time decorating with the primitive, folk art style. i think i convinced myself that it worked for me, but honestly, my true heart was in items that had a history or a story to tell.
there's nothing wrong with this style, it just isn't my heartbeat.
i married a man who's grandfather was an antique dealer for many years. their home was filled with beautiful antiques, all with a story to tell. we have since acquired several wonderful pieces from their estate but i digress. the reason for this post is to show how my true style has finally shown through. and to pay homage to those in blogland who have been my inspiration for getting back to my roots, so to speak.
without further ado, i now present my
