Good thing Mom likes junk because junk is what she got for Mother’s Day. This well used Oil Can with a spout and handle makes a cool vase.

Sue, spent the day with my Mom and brothers and sister! Lots of laughs (we provide my Mom with entertainment - without even trying...that's what kids do, right?? At any age I think!).

Hope your day was fun too!

Junk_Sophisticate writes: Ahhhh! Love this Jim! The yellow on the can is awesome and gets me super excited about a yellow rusted metal thing I came across today! I'll be posting about it soon.

Your mom is one lucky lady to receive something as cool as this! I'm sure she's a special one too.

The oil can is fantastic and the tulips look great, LOVE the color of BOTH. You take the most beautiful photographs too! I'm sure that your Mother was really happy to receive these.

suewhitney writes: Just my cup of oil, Jim! Tulips housed in junk...what could be better??!! You have a lucky Mom and I appreciate you sharing this with all the Moms on the site. Me thinks Moms should tell us what they did on their special day under this post. Who's going to be first??

Thanks again, Jim!
