Moving forward...

Still have a few tricks up my sleeve for JunkBonanza. I've been having fun making these houses out of the wonderful Bingo cards I got with the August kit from Jenni Bowlin.
Also been starting to change around my home decor to give it a warm fall feeling. Totally changing my color palette. Really inspired by this picture (above). Love everything about it.

As part of my countdown to JunkMarket Junk Bonanza I plan to have some fun things going on here on my blog over the next few weeks. Hard to believe the big event is just a bit over 2 weeks away! For those that cannot attend...and those than can...I'll have some special guests and other celebrations in the name of junk. I'm super excited to interview junk enthusiast and designer Chris Brown of Urban Prairie and have him as a guest blogger here very soon. I am also thrilled to say that my blog is now listed on the JunkMarket web site as a vendor. I'm getting more excited by the day! Stay tuned...

Those bingo houses are adorable! Such a great idea.

I love changing over my house from season to season. Not quite ready for fall, but I did put away some spring/summer stuff and start taking out some heavy ceramics.

The houses are cute. It must be that time of year to think of changing over for fall and starting to snuggle in. Good luck at Junk Bonanza though I doubt you'll need it! What a cutie to be interviewing :)
