I orginally made these bike rims with the vintage glass knobs as memo/photo boards for the fall Junk Market Under Glass event.  I sold all but one...and now I know why...
With some old clothes pins, snipped greens and a few stamped book pages it makes the perfect rustic wreath for my family room.

Yet another easy project idea for chipping charm...they are my specialty you know :)
And check out this hook its hanging from...
I have no idea what it was but I think I found the perfect re-purpose as a wreath hook.  Dont you?
And since I was snipping and stamping...I added some Christmas charm to these old clippy hangers too.
Wishing all of you lovely Junk Market friends a very Merry Christmas and happy holiday season.

You might already know that I have a bit of a "wreath problem"...here is yet another "spin" on a wreath idea...or 2 ;)

MERRY CHRISTMAS!
