Heres what I started with...some spools from my hubbys welding wire(painted black), an old wheel, a glass door knob, a tin lid and a Lazy Susan spinny thing...pretty sure thats what the sign at Home Depot said :)
 My Handy Hubby helped me put it all together and did a little welding...
And I finished it up with a little twine...
Added a few of the assorted dressings I keep handy in my fridge.  I know a little ridiculous, but I like a variety...
and it spins for easy access.
This worked slick for the Birthday BBQ I host yesterday for my daughter.  Salad Bar anyone???
And its great for flowers too :)

I didn't make it to Oronoco this year and so I almost didn't get to share my Junk Potluck entry...but then I decided to link (at the last minute :)) to Junkologie's at home Junk Potluck Link Party...and here's what I came up with...

Pattern or design used: My own design - Laurel Putman...Chipping with Charm
