Junkologie 2010: A Junkin' Year in Review

Pin It Oh, the junkin' year is over! No worries. That just means a new junkin' year is ahead! Before we ring in the new year, I decided to look back through old posts to see what happened at Junkologie in 2010. Check it out...

I wrote a prescription for the new year...Junking is Good for Your Health

(add yourself to the blogroll HERE!)

Jewelry by Gretchen Schaumann of Mimi-Toria's Designs.

The AAJMS Spring & Fall 2010 Shows were full of junk goodness!

Junkologie Has a New Look featured the new header, button, and blog layout in blues, greys, and a fab greyhound!

The NEW iJunk Spotlight featured these junking bloggers (or is that blogging junkers?)...


Junkologie Blog Party 2010 was seriously a ton of fun!
Prizes, 2nd Annual Junk Potluck, a Virtual Junk Potluck, a TV crew, and never-ending laughs!

...hearts, too! Lanette is saying "I heart this cabinet!" with one of Billy Joe's heart designs.
And I heart Lanette and Gretchen

Oronoco Gold Rush Days 2010 was a junker's dream!!

Vintage Christmas Star

Pin It

This giant star, which I believe to be a vintage Christmas adornment, was a find at Junk Bonanza back in September. It is made of metal mesh and is several feet tall and wide. The vintage wiring inside indicates that it used to be lit up for the season.
