Junk Room Cleaning and Favorite Things

Mom and I took Thursday and Friday off to work on her laundry room and my junk room.  We finished re-painting mom's laundry room yesterday and then mom came over to help me with the junk room today.  So far we have done two Goodwill runs, I have a bag of clothes for two of my friends to go through and three bins of stuff I need to go through.  The three bins has stuff that I need to look at to shred, file or just put away.

That is almost seven years of accumlated junk that I threw in the junk room.  When mom walked into the room she shuddered.  I asked if she was cold because I keep the heat low.  Mom said, "No, I am shuddering at the state of this room.".  I did take a few before pictures, but they are on my phone right now.  I think I will take photos of when I am done and post both sets of pictures together.  I still need to paint the room and hang a few pictures and I still need to go through the three bins and get them out of the room.  Mom said to work on the bins a half hour or 45 minutes this week and it will be done.

I am hoping to be working in the garage this weekend because the temperature is suppose to be in the upper 30's, heat wave!  Because I have been sick we also have not been working on any jewelry, so need to get back into that.  So, since we have done nothing new I thought I would share some of my favorite things I have found on Etsy.  Enjoy!

  2. LOL That Dennis is a genious! I love your etsy favs this time! I am glad you are over the crud but now cleaning the junk room is cruddy too!

  3. My husband, whose name is also Dennis, has the same mentality as the other Dennis. But that's why I love him!

  4. So glad you are feeling better. Those are some amazing finds on Etsy. Love that bird house. Makes me want to go make one. I am working on a quilted bird house for a tiny little felted bird my friend Barbara gave me for Christmas. We saw a really cool sample in one of the vendor booths at the Road2Ca show and my hope is that this little home will keep my cat from chewing up the little bird!! LOL
