My husbands old band instrument, rescued from a shed...When he began to play football he had to give it up. It looks like it has been through a war.
Look what I just got a tiny wash tub...LOVE the size!
Small skates found at Goodwill for .79 cents. Red trim!!! Little red chippy clamp to hang them on. Lights in tub.
First tries at ornaments from all of our keyboard letters. What do you think? We used Gorilla glue, would something else be better???
Do you ever just play with your junk??? I threw in all the greenery etc...When Im finished it will be less busy, but it isnt it Fun???

Just got this small washstand at Winnie and Tallulah's; I'm making a tree to go in it, but couldn't help messing with it. It is the perfect size to hold magazines through out the year. The frame with the trumpet is a work in progress.  I will add Christmas greens and christmas sheet music for now, but can change it out for the seasons.

Your display is a great junk work in progress (and can't wait to see the finished product) - the little washtub is wayyyy cool and I love the lights inside.

Thanks for sharing.

I love the lights, greenery and skates, they add just the right touch to your display. The trumpet adds the coolness factor. ~judi ;) Posted: 8:34 am on December 1st
