Follow my highs and lows of a small business, working with junk, repurposing, and creating original treasures!
Im a Visual Merchandiser, Interior Designer, Junk Artist, Collector, and Daydreamer!
My studio is filled with many old and new, shabby and chic, antique and vintage, one-of-a-kind items....
My life, and my home are much the same, 'cluttered and fabulous'!
Come and Browse....


REALITY good!!

My daughter has hit a nerve.....reality hurts! When it is just between close friends and family, then its not that bad, it is kind of acceptable...but when my kids involve their friends, it is just down right shocking!!!
They have come to her with concern for my health, they think I have a problem with hoarding, and she tends to agree. I laughed when she told me, they hadnt even entered the house at that point, that crazy observation was on the front verandah!!
But after lying in bed for a couple of hours, stewing on hers, and their words, I think they could be right.
I have been ignorant to the mess, no, the tip we have been living amongst for (at its worst) 2 years! Our $20,000 verandah we had built has never seen the light of day, I filled it to the brim the day it was finished...that is just the back verandah! Need I go on??
Today is the first day of my cleansing diet, the thinning down of junk and the like!
Keep an eye on my ebay store, Junkstudio on Karabah, you will be seeing many auctions over the next few weeks .I thankyou for your support.....


  1. Oh Sue, I had to laugh. I don't have a front verandah like yours (it is quite big guys, I've seen it) but my (not John's-lol) shed, the garage and my work/computer room look just like it. Take heart, I'm sure we aren't alone. Just ask Shannon-lol. By the way, I want that cup & saucer when you sell it.
    Hugz, Coll :-}
