Ultimate Blog Party

So, the cool thing this week seems to be the Ultimate Blog Party hosted by 5 Minutes for Mom. I love a good party, so of course I’m joining up. BYOB!

The first rule of Fight Club Ultimate Blog Party: Share what you and your site are all about!
All About Sam and The Junk House
My name is Sam (yes, short for Samantha) and this is my blog The Junk House. I just moved from a 1-bedroom apartment to my very own 3-bedroom/2-bath house! Yeah buddy!
The first problem is that I have 900 sq ft worth of furniture to fill a ~1500 sq ft house. And let’s be honest, some of that furniture is the same mismatched shiz I’ve had since college. And so, the idea behind The Junk House was born. I'll be thrifting, craiglisting, yard saling, hot gluing, begging and borrowing my way to a fully furnished, beautiful new house!
The second problem is the house itself. It’s cute and I love it, but it needs some work.

I could go on, but you get the idea…
So, I created this blog to show off my junkin’ finds and to feature my house-to-home projects. My random movie quotes and oddness is just an added bonus.  
Wanna know more about me? Check out my 7 Random Things About Me post!
Thanks for stopping by! Say hi and follow up!
*If you are already a follower: You are awesome! I love all 108 of you!


  1. What an excellent idea for a blog! Congrats on buying your house! My husband and I bought a major fixer upper a couple of years ago - it was a lot of work to make it our own but WELL worth it in the end. Even on those days when it feels like it will never end - keep your end vision in site and hang in there! You'll be so glad that you did!
