Well the pressure is on! I have not felt this much since college exams! I was one lucky girl............My junk partner is none other than the magnificent, fabulous, darling, and just darn creative gal! Any guesses??
There was a rod thingy on the grate. I used it to hold the seed packet. That way there would be no surprise as to what you are growing!! Very efficient!
The grate is now really great! HA!
Could not decide on the cloche! Image that!
If you dont have a bird nest and do not want to make one...........use a plant under cloche to add pizzazz.

Well incase you have not guessed it. It is the fabulous, magnificent, wonderful and pretty darn clever creator of Junk Market Style.‘THE MISS SUE”. Yep the one and only. Now you know why I have not felt this nervous since college and believe me that was a long time ago.

All her ideas for saving the earth comes from her heart. She really cares about the earth and the people around her. We are all under her ‘Junk Umbrella”. One of her many goals is for us to know each other better. We all have passion for recycling, rejuvenating, creating something out of “just” throw it away items. Sue has created this site out of her passion and look how far she has come! We are all in her debt! I for one feel a whole new world of friends has opened up for me!

 

Now for my next post I will try not to Canonize Sue!

Smiles, alice

When I spoke to Alice to get to know a little bit about her and what kind of "junk" she liked she expressed a hankering for all things metal. So metal is what she got.. some rusty, some not so rusty. Alice, you get an A+ from me on this project. Well done my friend. Love that you incorporated the rod thingy! Hey Alice, do you know what the metal hanger thingy is? You'll get a gold star to go with your A+ if you can guess. TeHe! You done yourself proud junk sister!

Be Well,
Sue

OnEaglesWings writes: Great job Alice....love it. I think my first thought when I see 'cool junk' is "how can I use this in the garden?" You definitely 'think outa the box' girl! Love your display with the cloche. I'm sure Sue will be well pleased with your creation!
Blessings,

junkermidge writes: Alice, using the grate thingy as a planter was perfect -- very Sue-like. And that was a great idea for the misc. rod. Now you just have to do it again for the next project (no pressure or anything!) Way to go!
