Greetings to Everyone

These are pot holders that are made from old rockers  handmade iron cross holders  and ends made by my husband. I originally just wanted some rough looking  antique boards but my husband came up with the rocker idea.  This works really well on the side of a pantry cupboard.

My husband and I are very much into recycling and reusing as much as we can. So we challenge each other to come up with new ideas and makes it even more fun than junkin' already is! 

This is a great site Sue and am so happy to find it. The magazine is great and am looking forward to the next.
