Monkeybox Junk!!

BIG junk box!!
Just a portion of the cool junk!

This cigar box is loaded with goodies! Letters, and game pieces and strings of rusty hearts...oh my!

Some of the paper goodies!

And look at this awesome name thing Shara did with metal tags, letters and ribbon. Love it!

Finally have a quiet moment to post this...the past week has been insane, and I'm still getting over that cold/flu that hit me me 2 weeks ago. Anyway...on Tuesday I arrived at my mailbox and found the usual bills & junk, but wait...there in the that the key to the parcel box?? Yes it is! Pulled out this BIG box from Shara over at Monkeybox, who had a giveaway in Febrary that I won. Opened it as soon as I got home, and all I can say is WOW...and WOOHOO...and look at all this cool junk! There's fabric, and junk, and old postcards and greeting cards, and junk, and ribbon and embroidered things, and junk and so many cool things to inspire junk creations!! I took several pictures, but they don't even begin to show all the cool stuff! I'm so happy that I won this giveaway...although my hubby was looking at me like I'd lost my Thank You Shara, for all the goodies, and hopefully I'll be posting some cool junk creations very soon! Have a great Sunday! *elaine*

Hey Elaine, I finally got around to posting the bit about the Meme, I changed the number to 3 I hope that is okay. I was just a little overwhelmed with 5. And I used your picture on your blog. Hope that is okay. Thanks and hope all is well.

Your box of junk looks like really good junk. I love picking through boxes like that and thinking of what I can do with the items. Have fun with all your stuff!

Hi Elaine,
I just linked over from 2 Chippys. You have FAB junk! Sounds like we collect a lot of the same stuff. Good thing you live 3,000 miles away! Stop by my blog sometime for a visit!
