DONNA at FUNKY JUNK INTERIORS had this amazing contest and I just HAD to enter, knowing full well that I didn't stand a chance with all the other talented bloggers that entered.  I just wanted to join in on all the fun.

well...look at me NOW !

The Copy Me Challenge ~ top 5

THE following was taken from her web site and I am just thrilled to death to be mentioned.
"We're nearing the closure of this fun contest! And it's my total honor to show off these 5 entries that I feel emulated my style with full colour junky flair. :)

Here are the top 5 entries I fell head over heals in love with. 
In no particular order...
Well BJ, even though you couldn't fall in love with your sign, I LOVE it. And it got you in the top 5. :)

 BJ  bid on the sign on Ebay, won it (only one that bid LOL) and it's been under her bed for 2 years. 2 YEARS. Know why? It was rusty...

I so laughed through this whole post. She really really wanted to funk her junk and in the end, just couldn't fall in love with the look, but she did keep the jar with the chains on her mantel. Go BJ! Don't you love her candle holder? Coolest idea ever.

Well, regardless of what BJ thinks, this mantel is top notch in my book. I love the play of the white enamel, black lettering and rusty trinkets, right along with a FJI trademark plant to soften things up. I think this is a very cool look!

As for the sign? It was last seen outside in the garden. Because it was ru... never mind. I can't even say it. :)"
Thanks much for the fun time and for featuring my FUNKY JUNK mantel on your adorable blog, Donna.!
I am thrilled to death to be listed in your TOP 5.
Good good luck to the finalist..they are all amazing and 
I can't even imagine how Miss Mustard Seed will choose the winner.

Everyone, go over and see the cuteness of Donna's blog...her unique way of decorating...
her adorable personality.
You'll get addicted......just like I am !
LOVE, bj

Hi bj, don't faint, yes, it is really me. My eye surgery has bee pretty awful but I am finally able to see better at last. Several days ago I said I was back but i really couldn't see well enough. I feel much better and I have been missing you my dear sister friend.

Congratulations on your top 5 status. I love what you did. Yes, funky but so original and country charming. Good for you.

Donna made a very good choice when she picked you. Smile.

I hope all is well and your sanity has returned. Mine comes and goes. HA!
Love you dearly,
