This old pulley hung perfectly on an old grain door from dads farm.  Thanks for saving it for me, dad!
Love the details and hardware on the old door...
Since I didnt want to buy another wreath, this frostly-looking garland will do the trick. 
Love the fun jar on casters purchased at JunkFest 11...
My old metal tool box filled with whitery trees will remain on the mantel for the rest of the winter season.

To answer your question, SantaClaus, no, the jar isn't glued on to the wheels. Not sure what the casters would have held, but the jar fits perfectly on it - no chance of it falling off so safe to light. Like I mentioned, I bought it at JunkFest 2011! It was a "must have" item!

gadgetsponge writes: Super compilations! That pulley is a gem and you just can't reproduce what nature does to old wood like that. The metal toolbox and jar on casters both play well with the garland fixture. Posted: 7:19 am on December 29th
