A real fun box that almost made it to the next sale. It has a leather strap on it and rusty metal on the edges. Just right for my Fall bouquet.
An old car jack is perfect for a mini Jack o lantern.
Another favorite metal box that was suppose to be for sale but is just too fun to part with yet.
A hinge from a railraod car. I liked how big it was all by itself and because my dad worked for Northen Pacfic railroad.
Not sure what this is but we got it at a auction and thought it was a cool piece. It would look good with a candle also.

Fall is the perfect time to bring out the rust in more ways then one.

Thanks for sharing.

AND the hindge is fabulous and has a great meaning to you which I love. It means so much more when there's a meaning behind an item.

Thanks for sharing! I think you live in ND if I'm not mistaken. We need to get together and do some serious junking girl!

Laurel, I think we have the same ideas sometimes. I would see things that you would do that I have done. Too funny.
Jim, I kinda thought you would like that Internaional box. We think someone put those letter's on later. What ever, it is a fun box. Thanks again, Mary Posted: 8:11 pm on October 1st
