Simplicity. I have been waiting for a long time to utilize this big metal hoop and it was the foundation piece for this wall display
A beautiful frame for my daughters photo was found and purchased outside of Nashville. Bravo to all who are saving bits and pieces of history!
This frame was created from reclaimed wood salvaged from a historical building in downtown Nashville. I love the fact that its origin is written on the back of the frame.
Simple elements are displayed inside the reclaimed hoop. Some reclaimed and some thrift store finds. All elements remind me of my daughter, Elizabeth! The lve thrift store get says it all. This girl is live and she knows how to live. Just saying!
I have always collected the initial E for Miss Elizabeth. This one is actually a foundry piece. Love!
Im digging the combination of metal and wood.
This little planter from the 1950s allowed me to add an organic element. Apparently Im liking little doilies to soften all of the harder elements.
Another view.

Working with junk does not need to look junky. I was after something other than an expected piece of art or wal collage in this room. Here's what I came up with.


Did you make this?
After you make it, show it off to other members in the Member Junk area.
Post your project photos
