A special thanks to Donna at Distressed Donna Down Home for bringing all of these ladies together and convincing them to share their great projects with us.
So just who are these Gems in the Junkin Jewels?? Well..lets start with Donna.
In her own words.... "As a lifetime junk collector, I am always on the hunt for the rusty, crusty, and vintage treasures that lurk about in dark corners begging to be transformed. I am a Rust Goddess - Southern style!"

The next Gem is Denise, from Spittin Toad. I love that blog name by the way...Spittin Toad!
Denise says: "I love art, junk and all things vintage...When I can put them all together and create something new...Well, that just makes my heart sing!!"

Many of you may be familiar with our next Gem in the Junkin Jewels...It's Tuula from The Thrifty Rebel!
Tuula is so cute and funny! Here's her short bio..
"I've been a thrifter since I was born. I inherited the gene from my parents through no fault of my own. At the age of four I cried my way into getting my first thrift store treasure... a beautiful blonde haired doll that I still have, and I was hooked for life. I've been reusing, repurposing, and upcycling ever since, and I don't cry for my treasures anymore. At 52 it's not such a good look, and crying makes frowny wrinkles."
Tulla has made some fabulous garden art out of her thrifting finds, so I wasn't surprised when she chose this as her favorite project.

Believe it or not...we have another gem in the Junkin Jewels named Denise!
I'm a mom of two sweet and funny kids, a graphic designer and most definitely a junk-junkie! I love to create pretty things out of just about whatever I can find! With tons of help from my special man, Eric, I create home decor and refinish old furniture for our little business that we call On a Whim.
Meet the fabulous Denise....
