Attracted to old and "worthless" stuff.  Hauled this away from an auction and not long after, persuaded my husband to hang it on the west side of my porch where the sun and wind will force one inside on a summer day.  the climbing vine adored it and made a spectacular show this fall with lacy white flowers.  It is now my little reading corner.
