Your style in three words:

fun, unique, creative

On your junking bucket list:

atomic bark cloth, ladies’ hankies, seed sacks, cashmere twin sets with rhinestone buttons

You knew you were a junker when…

…I stopped using new materials and went to 100 percent vintage.

ppin8

Best all-time junking find:

huge jar of amazing old clothing buttons…. for a song!

You wish you would never have parted with…

…a blue and white chenille bedspread.

ppin2

Bringing to the Bonanza:

wool toys, vintage fabric bags, pillows, pincushions made from old planters, small vintage fabric accessories and much more!

You never junk without…

…my creativity! I buy to repurpose, so I look at an item and see what I want to make out of it.

ppin3

In your garage: cars or junk?

cars; supplies go to my 1700-square-foot studio space.

No one would ever guess you…

…don’t mind cutting up vintage linens to make my own designs.

ppin4

Your junking holy grail:

old screen doors for display — hard to find at a junker’s price.

ppin5

Junking makes you feel…

…like an explorer! If I look hard and keep my vision broad, I find so many terrific pieces!
