eet the Junkologie Wordle. It tells you what this blog is all about. It's amazing to see how technology can capture the essence of a blog by using key words. What do you think this Wordle says about Junkologie? What do you think your Wordle would say about you or your blog?

Junking Runs in the Family

Pin It

y father-in-law makes fabulous creations from salvaged barn lumber and mirrors. This past summer, he surprised me with this official Junkologie sign. He even etched the mirror himself. He is brilliantly handy...a gift that I am grateful he passed on to his son!

Below is one my favorite photos of him sporting his Junkologie shirt and pink tools at the Junkologie Blog Party 2009 at the Oronoco show...



He's trying to overcome his shyness! :) Can you tell?


On the other side of the family...

my mom sent me this email of my dad's recent junking project...



She said my junking influence is rubbing off on him, but maybe it's the other way around. Can you think of a better repurpose for these two garden implements? I can't! Well done, Dad!

hese are just a few recent shots of the Junkologie booth at Old Town Antiques in Duluth, MN. I'll be bringing in new finds over the next few weeks so that shoppers can find unique holiday gifts for themselves and/or their loved ones. We're also talking about hosting a holiday open house at the store on the evening of Thursday, December 3. Lots of holiday cheer to go around! If you are in the Duluth area, please plan on joining us!
