Just a piece of JUNK.....

That's what the guy said when I asked him what it was and how much was it. I instantly fell in love with the rusty, crusty texture and the shape. Can you guess what it is??? Think ~ Think~ Think.....AN OLD SWIVEL STOOL BASE! I know...go figure...way cool! My first thought was that it would make a great cloche. Couldn't wait to get it up to the booth at The Depot and see how it would look. I was giddy happy with the outcome. (It doesn't take much). I love how it looks with the herbs but possibitlites are "thru da roof" on what you can put underneath it!
The same guy also had this little old fry basket ( at this point I think he is starting to feel sorry for be because all his other stuff was big ticket crystal chandeliers and I couldn't even afford a single drop crystal ...PRICEY but beautiful!) anyway I flipped my lid ' on this cuz I thought it would make a fab napkin holder.The handle moves, so it will keep the napkins nice and snug in there. So I bought his two trashiest pieces and LOVE them both!


Some of you aren't going to like this last picture.....ESPICIALLY all my friends toughing out the Noreaster going on up north....OR maybe JUST MAYBE this is the little "sign of hope" to help get you thru. I'd like to introduce you the first Daffodil of the season. She arrived yesterday out by my birdfeeder and was out in all her glory this morning soakin up the sun.

Her message is simple........PATIENCE MY FRIENDS, SPRING IS ON IT'S WAY!

What great finds. I love what you're doing with them. You know the saying' someone's trash, someone's treasure. My fennel is starting to peek through, so we will see how it goes. Have a great day!

You sound like me, they make fun of me at the estate sales because I always pass over the big ticket items for the rusty junk outside.

Great finds!

Great finds. I love that crusty, rusty piece -- I immediately thought cloche too. And that basket will make a perfect napkin holder.

Hello Beth,
Love the rusty stuff you find out in someones yard, or the side of the house in a junk pile. The best treasure always seem to be rusted with the best Patina to them.

You found a treasure.

You are SO right...those of us "up North" can hardly hold back our bulb-envy! But just seeing that bit of green does recall the hope that spring DOES always eventually come! Thanks for the reminder!

oh!!! stopped by from another blog and saw your post. Your creative "genius" idea for the napkin holder looks much like one I just found recently while thrifting. It has a little bird on teh handle. see it here for inspiration or something else you could embellish yours with. SOOO cute. Great idea. Junk is just GREAT! http://faithgraceandjoy.blogspot.com/2010/02/white-wednesdays.html

enjoyed my visit.
