The Weird Room...Where Bloggers Create!

Some stuff I have started putting together for a show I have been invited to do...exciting details to come!

In the fall, I would like to change out our front booth (currently blue and green) to more browns and earthy colors.

My motto is that anything in mass can be a cool display!  I bought a box full of old gloves and then this weekend bought a bag full of child's red bow ties (this is just a few of them).

We decorate a lot with pearls and I love great old buttons. 

Don't have a clue what do do with all these buttons, but the look cool!

I want to do a display with some old black metal frames I bought and thinking about using these black trimmed platters with them?  Who knows.

I am thinking this is toooooo formal for me....we will see where it ends up.

You know all our booths have to have a vintage dress!

Already buying stuff for Valentine's Day!

Some fun spring collections!

Always buying for the pink booth!

And of course, the red booth.

I love these old mailboxes for storage.  Not for sale LaurieAnna!

Earrings, brooches, drawer knobs....just odd and ends.

Always have to have a supply of flash cards!

I love silhouettes!

Back to a lot of anything makes a good display...tons of old wooden door knobs.  Who knows what I will do with these???

I love this old cabinet and did not have the heart to sell it.

It now is where the odd and end pieces wait for a display!

It is a very junky room!

Most important thing for these middle aged eyes!

Well, I have seen several people participating in Karen's Blog Party about where bloggers create @  I decided that although I can't compete with most of the rooms I have seen, I would humbly participate.  I am not sure I would say I create in this room, I really just stage there.  When I bought my house, it had what was considered a kid's playroom.  You have to go through this room to get to the two guest rooms.  Since I don't have kids or need a playroom, I was stumped what to do with it.  I thought about using it as a comfy TV room for guests outside their guest room...then thought about some type of library, but never really came up with a good fit.  So it got dubbed, "The Weird Room".  When I started in the junk business a few years back, I decided this would be the perfect room to stage my next booth set-ups.  As any of you know who shop at Lone Star, I love to change out our booths often and I decorate by color.  A booth usually has the same color decor (thus the blue booth, the pink booth and the red booth).  I tend to do small vignettes in this room to get my creative juices going and store the larger pieces in the garage.  As you can see by the pictures, I have several color themes going right now.  Setting these vignettes up helps me  identify gaps and be on the look our for pieces that will finish out a booth or show.  Sometimes when I buy toooooo much stuff, it just becomes a junk room for storage and I have to spend a weekend cleaning it out!  There you have Weird Room!

  1. Isn't one of the definitions for create "design" and isn't that what you do your booths? I'd say it's exactly where you create and what a fun room to dig in.
