Blog Faves – Donna’s Funky Junk Interiors


From the moment I clicked on Donna’s Funky Junk Interiors blog page, I was hooked.  She seems so down-to-Earth and real.  Earthy, in gardening lingo, is a compliment and the perfect kinda gal I can relate to.  It almost feels like she’s my soul “sistah” from a Canadian mother.

Did I forget to tell you she’s from Canada, eh?  Well, I’m not.  She’s SUPER handy & creative and I’m not.  OK, maybe just a little handy and kinda, sorta creative. She’s a Marvel superhero with power tools.  I’m definitely not!

But we DO have other things in common. Coffee & cats, for sure.  She likes rusty, old things.  I sometimes do, too, but I admit I like some things shiny & new.  We both tend to get sucked into time warps when we are working intensely on our projects.

I first found Donna while building one of my gardening vision boards on Pinterest because of her gorgeous photos of building her pallet garden walkway (see photo) and edging her garden beds like a pro.  Check out one of those original blogs here:

I’ve been following Donna’s blog for awhile and feel connected to her somehow.  She uses charming sayings like, “rusty bling” and “squirrel moments” (my favorite.)  Maybe it’s a Canadian thing, but I enjoy her humble writer’s voice and what she says rings true for me.

Most of her blogs are about creating beautiful things from pallet wood.  I enjoy them for sure, but love her ramblings, travel photos, life stories, and cat pictures just as much.

If you ever have a free moment or two, jump over to her blog.  I highly recommend it and I’m confident you will find her junky world very interesting.  Be forewarned.  You could get sucked into a Funky Junk time warp.

FYI, this is not a paid endorsement of any kind.  I’ve never met Donna and she doesn’t even know who I am or that I planned to write about her.  She just made such a HUGE impression on me that I just wanted to share some of my most inspiring favorite bloggers and she’s at the top of my A list.

You will eventually find many more of my favorite bloggers under the Blog Faves tab on the main menu of the Repurposed Gardener home page.

Until then, enjoy getting to know Donna!

    Thank you for your kind words and please forgive my belated response. I first started documenting my garden projects on a Repurposed Gardener Pinterest page. I decided in May this year to try adding a gardening blog by first watching a You-Tube video on how to start a blog, then following along step-by-step. There so many How-To videos on You-Tube, you just have to find the one that fits your style. I have since added an Instagram and Facebook page for Repurposed Gardener. I hope you will Like and Share them with all your friends and come back to the blog. There will be more blog posts again, soon.
