I Can't Believe I Won!

Copy Me Challenge

So, I'm sure you've all heard about the CopyMe! Challenge presented by Donna at Funky Junk Interiors and Marian at Mustard Seed Interiors. The idea was quite simple, create something that represented their individual styles. But there was nothing simple about it! These ladies are seriously talented and each one has a very unique vision and perspective on life and decorating. But it was such fun to play along and there were tons of fabulous entries to both challenges.

And I still can't believe it, but I actually won the Funky Junk Copy Me! Challenge! I can't even tell you how thrilled I am! Donna is such a great inspiration. And I love not only her salvaged, funky junk style and amazing creations, but I love the girl behind the blog and the power tools - the heart and soul of Funky Junk Interiors! She is real and true and genuine!

For my entry, I decorated my fireplace and mantel as I thought Donna would. I used lots of vintage, rusty, chippy, salvaged goodness! You can read the entire post here. These are the highlights. I told Donna that even after I posted my entry, I kept finding things around my house that I could have included. I guess I really am a funky junk girl!

The girls from Elizabeth & Co. were represented here too!

The wheel belongs to Karla and the chippy ladder belongs to Susan.
What is it about chippy ladders that makes us all swoon?

Now if by chance you've never visited Donna at Funky Junk Interiors,
here's just a taste of the fabulousness that awaits you!
Believe me, there is so much to see.
You won't be able to take it all in at once!

Simply fabulous, right? And did I mention that Donna just signed a book deal?

I'm hoping for an autographed copy!

Not only was I blown away by winning the challenge, but also by the amazing post that Donna wrote in announcing the winner. Donna's been in my corner before. But she took extra time to browse around my blog, get to know me better and introduce me and Elizabeth & Co. to her readers. That was so incredibly generous and appreciated! Thank you Donna, from the bottom of my heart!

And thanks to Marian, more affectionately known as Miss Mustard Seed for picking me! After Donna narrowed the entries down to her favorite top five, Marian picked the winner.

Kelli at Restore Interiors was the lucky and wonderfully talented winner of the Miss Mustard Seed Copy Me! Challenge! Way to go Kelli!

And if you're visiting from Funky Junk, thanks so much for stopping by. I hope you enjoy your visit and come back again!
