This past fall I won a pair of tickets for the spring Junk Bonanza here in Minnesota. Well, it wasn't really me, but my mom used my accounts to enter for a chance to win, and guess what, she won! Since it is my mom's 30th Birthday on Saturday I'm considering this her early present from me.

When people hear the work "Junk" most people think of rusty, old, useless stuff. But, if you look beyond the surface you can find purpose in these old items.

For example, using an old mason jar or an old flour container for treat jars. My humans turned two old wire baskets into a small toy basket or a place to hold my tools. And my favorite, is an old bowl as a water dish.

Last year my mom picked up a new toy box for me. As you can tell it is able to hold all my toys, with room for more.

 Now, what uses could my mom find for this antique, metal bed pan??? Possibilities are endless!!!


  1. Those places can be so fun, especially if you are a bit creative! Happy early birthday to your mom too!

  2. OMD yes the possibilities are endless with that one. Have a tremendous Thursday.
    Best wishes Molly

  3. She will think of something

  4. What a cool present Spencer. Happy early birthday to your mum.

  5. Our Mama has been getting hooked on the Lara Spencer flea market finds show and wants to go "junking" too! Funny, because she mumbled something about Grammy dragging her to all these yard sales and flea markets when she was a kid and she hated it... now she wants to find junk to repurpose!

  6. That sounds cool Spencer! Just this morning, as I was driving to take my daughter to school I saw a pile of "junk" sitting on the curb in front of someone's house. There was a miniature circus tent... I was SO tempted to stop and find out if this junk was for free. I should have. That tent was too cool and my 3 year old would have loved it!

  7. Ohhhh my mom loves that stuf!!!!
