This is a burner of some kind, and it weighs a ton! Another find that will stand up to our wind!
I brought it straight home and put it in an planter.
I LOVE this one too! It also weighs many, many pounds, but I had to have it! I dont have a clue what it was for originally. It says Murillo on it, which tells me nothin!! :)
This little beauty didnt come from the scrap yard, but from a recent flea market. It was the end of the day and I picked it up really cheap! Lucky me, because I wanted it and would have paid more! :)
Brought it home, hung it up,  stuck some lobelia in it and its done. I am SO glad spring is finally here!

oldnews writes: RustyDiva, I KNOW you love that rust too! We would probably have a HARD time shopping together! I'm in California, so we only really have a month or two that we aren't pretty green. Right now, that's about the ONLY good thing about living here!! :) Posted: 2:12 pm on March 23rd

cindyb82 writes: These are neat-o! The last picture (that you bought at a flea market) is what my father in-law called a corn planter. I have one displayed in my home that belonged to him (and it still has some seeds in it :). He used it to replant seeds in his garden the spots where seeds didn't sprout.

Thanks to all for the inspirationional posts! :) Cindy Posted: 9:09 am on March 23rd
