Faith, food…. and junk??

Here in my inaugural blog post I’ll fill you in on what to expect from this blog, and how it got its name.

Okay, so kinda a different name.  Faith and food, well that’s obvious!  My faith and my relationship with our Savior is the most important thing in my life.  I fail daily, and ask for forgiveness daily.  I’m often reminded of a song I learned as a child, “He’s still working on me.”  That’s the absolute truth, and I pray daily that I always allow him to work on me.

Food, well I love to cook and eat!!  Don’t we all?!  I love natural ingredients, and low carb recipes, but sometimes I may have an awful for you, but so good to eat recipe to share!  Moderation is the key!

So junk could be just whatever other topics I decide to throw in here,  but for the most part I mean literal junk!  I’m a junker!  Yard sales, thrift stores, auctions, and yes actual junk yards, that’s my thing!  My happy places!  I love to find old, forgotten, beat up pieces and bring them back to life.  Either by refinishing, or by giving a fresh coat of paint, or maybe completely repurposing a piece for a different use.  The possibilities are endless!  My home is furnished with pieces I have done, I love them!  They are unique, not something you can go buy, and each I feel is a reflection of me.

I love looking around my home and seeing the pieces I have put myself into.  Knowing what a transformation our farmhouse table has been through, and how that one spot took so much time to sand smooth, remembering the feeling I had when I spotted that perfect piece of walnut at a yard sale that now sits atop an antique singer sewing machine base.  The result of which is a beautiful table that showcases pictures of my family.  I love that I know these pieces, that each has a story.

So Faith, food and junk…. that’s me in a nutshell and what you can expect if you decide to follow along.  I have for years kept a portfolio of before and after pictures of my projects, and recipes I have created with the intention of writing a blog.  So after years of saying I was going to, I decided to actually do it.  I hope you find something here that inspires you!
