Expect the Unexpected With This Junker's Christmas Home Tour!

Several years ago I tucked away my Christmas decorations, and decided to create my own out of found objects.

Today, it's completely normal to expect the unexpected. It's actually very challenging to create something new out of virtually nothing, but that's the very thing that fuels me to do it again and again!

Here's a good sized sample of the tour, with more in store at the blog link.

How did I do this year? Which is your favourite feature?

It's snowing in my bathroom! Well, it's easy to pretend it is with a little spray snow dusting the corners of certain shutters and crates. And it's easy to clean too.
