FOR THE LOVE OF JUNK

SOME WOMEN DREAM OF BEAUTIFUL HOMES AND PERFECTION. SOME DREAM OF THE DIAMOND IN THE ROUGH, OUTCAST ITEMS, THE TATTERED, THE CRAZED, THE RUSTED AND SOMETIMES DISCARDED TREASURES. IM A MEMBER OF THE SECOND GROUP. I'M A JUNKER FOR LIFE!

I'm still alive.

Friends, it has been soooo long. The hole moving, refinishing, remodeling both 2 houses and the shop have been more that I anticipate. Not even my over achiever, superwoman powers worked this time. My hair is literally falling off and I'm not getting enough sleep at all. I have stressed over having 3 mortgages and because the shop have been closed not having that extra income. I'm about to consolidate the little money I got left into a little bank account. I took a big chance and my prayers are that God will continue to oversee over my finances like He always had. I know how to make more money, I just need a little place where to sell from.
     Good news, the house is almost done. I still have some tweaking to do. I believe we have done a lot in little time. Just some teaser photos of some of the rooms. I will do posts on every room later on. I hope you enjoy, I surely have enjoy decorating. Love you all, blessings, Marta.

     That is all folks! Until next time.

PD Plans for later when I can afford to do it.
Replace gold fixtures in the bathrooms.
Add ceiling medallions and replace light fixtures with chandeliers.
Gardens
New ceiling fans, the ones in the house are horrendous.
Window treatments in some of the rooms.
Finish off my screen room decor.
Work myself to death before Christmas, arg.

You're home is beautiful! I love that large hutch piece in the kitchen. You kick up your feet and rest a bit. You deserve it! ~Mindy

LOVE* that kitchen cabinet! It is so fun to get lost in our projects, isn't it? Although, it does sound a bit stressful, too...take care and rest in Him.

Marta,
Well I am adoring that cabinet in your eat in kitchen. And wow that stack of suitcases. We definitely are sisters separated by miles of road. I love all the pieces Liz bought from you - they are amazing.
Glad to see the house coming together.
