Funky Junk Inspired

I'm reposting this from the Christmas season, since it is the most Funky Junkiest inspired post I can think of. This SOOOO looks like something Donna would have done for her holiday house!

Well, we made the change over from Thanksgiving and autumn decor to Christmas and Insanely Creative Christy and I had a list and together we had a plan. But sometimes things just happen and you have to seize the day. I had a big, old, oval trencher with a beat up chippy paint finish and as we took things down and put things up we started throwing the odds and ends in that old bowl.....

Hey, neat!

That's looking pretty cool, almost like we planned it, but we didn't. Had to take pics anyway.

Book page Christmas balls, vine balls, shiny balls go in. Chuck in some random silvery, pearly, metallic garlands next. Hey, that looks good!

A pretty yarn angel, a tangle of tiny pearl beaded garland...and a trio of rusty tin stars. Better and better!

Hey, these pretty little string angels need a place to rest before we hang them on a tree. Put 'em in the bowl. Sweet! So many pretty things together in one place, maybe we should leave this as is?

Maybe, but we didn't. We had plans and lists and schedules. But don't worry, old beat up chippy painted trencher bowl, we'll do you good when we're all done with things.

Just sharing the spontaneity of the moment ladies, sometimes good things happen if only fleetingly. Seize the moment and ENJOY! I'm linking up to Funky Junk's Copy Me Challenge, come check it out!
