Croquet sets are still among my favorite summer junk. This one will be done up in a whole new way....
Another view. I love the top on this opens in a nifty noodle sort of way.
A total eclipse every day.
You now me...I also love the softer side of junk. Pretty in white!
This one may have you wondering. A galvanized bucket? Whats so cool about that? I call these junk staples. Im always looking for new ideas with every day finds.... so stay tuned for this one in Country Gardens Magazine.
LOVE this one. This...I thin was used to hold kerosene. Its all cleaned up now and ready for something a little less toxic. maybe this find is not for the magazine or maybe it could be...who knows? Only time will tell. One thing is for sure. Me loves it.
Industrial junk is a fav of mine because pieces like these tend to have a 101 uses.
Oh Id love to be an Oscar Mayer weiner. That is what Ive always wanted to be. Because if I were and Oscar Mayer weiner everyone would be in love with me! i just couldnt help myself.
Were you wondering why the weiner rack was empty. Looks like they were nose licking good! Ah hahahahaha!

I was on more than one mission while visiting the Vintage Treasures Market this weekend. Part of my job was to find product ripe for re-vamping to be highlighted in some magazine stories for Country Gardens. Now...I'm not going to tell you what the stories are...that would ruin the surprise. These are very fun projects and I am looking forward to producing more outdoor stories. If you aren't familiar with Country Garedens, pick up a copy today. It's a great magazine and I am sure you will enjoy it. I love my job!
