~Mother's Day Present From Hubby~

My husband surprised me with these around 3 years ago for Mother's Day. There's 4 of them going around the tree with 4 different cool metal pieces.

I bought around 20 of these metal pieces from a garage sale for only $50. They're remnant punch-outs from an industrial stove maker.

The rusty outdoor firepit will soon be hanging above our deck in the backyard.  I can't wait!

The rusty ladder is now a trellis for our honeysuckle.

Enjoy!
