Funky Find Friday: Blogs!

Most of my Funky Find Fridays so far have featured items for sale on Etsy or stuff made by the fabulous peps on For today's post, I thought I would switch it up a bit and feature some of my favorite funky blogs.

First up is JunkMarketStyle. If you haven't heard of Sue Whitney or JunkMarket by now, Google away! Sue's been featured in everything from Country Living magazine, HGTV and "The Today's Show"! She'd written several books as well. Sue has a great love of "junk" and repurposing that junk into unique furniture and home decorating items.

This is one of Sue's most recent projects.
More that just a blog, this baby is jammed packed with a blog, member sections where everyone can post their junky creations, and all kinds of project ideas. Plus you gotta love a girl who's almost every project is done with Gorilla Glue!

Next is Tearing up Houses. I've mentioned Kelly several times before. I can't get enough of her blog! She is a landlord, self-proclaimed real estate junkie, restores houses, and just generally has great insights that make you think.

Between the on going saga of counteroffers on a house, funny stories about tenants, her reoccurring series like "Pointless Poop" and "Say Anything" who wouldn't become hooked!

Another great blog I love is The Nesting Place. "The Nester" as she calls herself has a great motto: "It doesn't have to be perfect to be beautiful." Her blog is dedicated to that theme.

The Nester shows great how-to projects including her famous "mistreatments" for windows. There are always great photos of The Nester's beautiful home and great ideas for simply re-arranging the things you already have in your home.

My final funky blog (at least for this week!) is Thrifty Decor Chick. Sarah is a great designer, who loves "decorating on the cheap." She takes goodwill items and makes them fab!

Between a self-proclaimed obsession with molding, and spray paint tricks, Thrifty Decor Chick is a great place to go for ideas and tips to decorate your own home.

Have some funky finds you'd like to share? Email me: ehinders [at]

I will be posting a fun little project either today or tomorrow for you just like I promised, so check in for that.

All blogs featured in this week's Funky Finds can now add a feature button to their site! Check it out over on the right column.

Happy Crafting!
