Welcome to my junky mantel...
I love old tires!  This one was the perfect frame for this small wreath.
My junk buddy, Missy, gave me some graphic votives last year...hopefully therell be lots of laughter in my house this holiday season!
These old metal gas station numbers add another junky element to the mantel.
These plates arent old, but I loved the black and white print.  
The end result turned out well with the three color pallet.
The hearth of my faux fireplace is the perfect place for candlelight.  Here, rusty springs still in their frame hold votive candles.
Welcome to my junky mantel...
