Tell someone how much you love them...with junk!

Humble components are re-imagined into a holiday creation with a soul.

Here’s a portion of an old Christmas tree stand repurposed into a vase.

All the hearts were snipped from the sheet metal remains of a vintage Coca-Cola cooler.

This old tin lid was transformed into a finial and attached to the top of a chippy barn board.

A beautiful crusty mix of odds and ends.
The finial adds another layer of color.
Steel, tin, rust and wood are all pulled together by a Valentine bouquet.

I love you all and thanks for the amazing creativity and support you contribute to Junk Market Style each and every day.

If I had your creativity, your great stash of supplies, and the skill to work with metal, wood and old paint finishes, this is exactly what I would make.
But I don't. So thanks for making it and sharing it with all of us. Posted: 12:52 pm on February 14th

Happy Valentine's Day!

Thank you for all of the great ideas you give us. I never made it to art school, but I truly appreciate how you turn old junk into amazing works of art.

cragar writes: Ummmm....Jim.....might not be a bad idea to have at least one reason to be able to articulate to that person though....'cause there aint no way "just because" is going to suffice when they demand "why"? lol
P.S. Stumbled upon this site a day or two ago.....and I have to say.....I feel like I'm home! Love the ideas, the repurposing, the pleasantries exchanged in the posts! Any way you can "bottle" up some of this pure, wholesomeness and "sprinkle" it over this world of ours? We surely need more of it! Well done, Craig Posted: 5:18 am on February 14th
