I was so excited to receive my box of junk!  My box contained an old clock in pieces, costume jewelry, driftwood, odds and ends and Morning Glory seeds.  Today my husband and I put the clock back together.  We had to replace the clock mechanism with a battery operated model.  We also created a base for the clock using plumbing and ceiling fan pieces.  I'm really happy with the result.  I think it looks like it has always been on the base we made. 

I look forward to our weather improving so I can plant the seeds!
