Let the guessing games begin! I think you will be able to figure out what most of the items are, but this on might just throw you for a loop! What is it?
Now can you guess now?? Heres a clue. I gave it a spin and a bunch of white stuff went flying all over me and my kitchen floor. Thanks, Geo. You know how much I like to sweep!
After all that talk about toxic waste...this is what I received from Jim. Hes a lot nicer than he seems! Ya know Im just yanking your chain, Jimbo!
Gretchen, dear Gretchen delivered a pileo junk. Guess she wants me to make more that one thing!
These sent Federal Express from member Queen of Quantity. I know she has a barn full of these so I guess she wanted to lighten her load. We pondered over these during the garage sale and I think we came up with an idea or two. OK, so I had a little help. Do you blame me?!
Amy, sweet Amy. Not so much. Didnt I tell you that the quiet ones are the most dangerous! Im more than a little stumped with this one so Im going to have to recharge the old thinking cap. Thanks Amy. Again not so much! Hahaha!

I have plenty of junk in hand so now for the what to do, what to do, what to do?! Some ideas came to me right away, but i'm still a bit baffled by some of the gifts I received. Wish me luck...you'll see the first finished project tomorrow!

shabbychick writes: I guess I could go with Jim's hint and say I bet it's one of those thingies that puts lines down on a football field (or some kind of field...) - but just for fun - let's say it's a hand-operated snow making machine...(And you know you could use one of those in Minne-snowta!!)

Anyway...Sue - you've got some great stuff to work with - and the umbrella may be a challenge - so, if you need help - we'll be there next week for some brainstorming! :)

was used to make white lines either for football,tennis or
baseball. I think I remember seeing it used in a movie I
seen awhile ago, the movie was called "Rudy". Posted: 8:25 am on August 3rd

Jim says its a hundred yards of something.This is crazy.How much help did you have to put this all together.GOOD LUNK JUNKERS. Robert. Posted: 7:54 am on August 3rd

What an interesting jumble of mish-mosh you have been blessed with!!! If anyone can come up with a project or two out of this all, it's you!!! I have NO idea what you will create, but I am sure it will be wonderful, as always.

I have to agree with Amy, I think the "mystery" item was used to mark the white lines of playing fields.

I do like those "tubes" (whatever they are) and would love to own a bunch myself. They would make great legs or arms for my art people.

Best of luck to you. The challenge will be a tough one, but I am certain, you will conquer this and remain - the Queen of Junk!!! gailmarie Posted: 7:05 pm on August 2nd

Can't wait to see what you do with that beautiful umbrella!! (Yeah, I'm still chuckling a bit.) I know you'll come up with something brilliant!

Well Miss Sue I know exactly what it is but because no one else has guessed yet I’ll keep quiet for now.

Here’s a hint: “100 yards”.
