Sometimes you have something around for years before it hits you, that Aha moment!  Take a rusty farm piece, some shoe forms for balance, and add some candles in vintage light globes, and you have an instant centerpiece!!  Find out more about it at the junk-fest blogspot.

monakent writes: This piece is GREAT!!! I too have the metal shoe forms and shoe tree (not sure what to call the piece the shoe forms sat on) that were my Grampa's. For years, I intermixed them among my plants and other "junk." But this gives a total new idea on how to use them. The overall look is wonderful - even stunning. So happy you had your "Aha moment" and decided to share with us all. gailmarie Posted: 10:55 am on May 20th
