Junk in Bloom...

This old typewriter may have has lost its keys, but not it's cute-ability! This lovely old Smith & Corona has found a new purpose as a planter on my back patio...Doesn't everyone love rusty baskets? This one is no exception. Truth is, it doesn't look too junky any longer filled with pretty flowers!But if you look closely, maybe it does with the old typewriter keys stuck in the dirt...grow baby grow!My recent thrift store purchase is obviously a creamer, but it can look oh, SO PRETTY as a bud vase...in my opinion.
An old ladle is filled with new life...Soon-to-be-flowering are the contents in this old flour sifter...
Indoors, and with no need to display firewood now, my rusty log holder is currently a summer "junk in bloom" right in my own dining room... I have decided from now on whenever I post to this blog I will try to remember to add a "quote for the day" or perhaps fun "words of wisdom" to the end of each post. I am challenging my three junk sisters on this site to do the same...so, here goes:


I read this article that said the typical symptoms of stress are eating too much, drinking too much, impulse buying and driving too fast. Are they kidding?! Those things are MY idea of a PERFECT day!

    I love your idea of a quote ending and this one was perfect...just proves one thing...we're all standing on the ledge! BTW, dessert spelled backwards is stressed.

  6. Oh, man I wish I would have seen this a month ago. I removed the keys from a typewriter, but I cut them off first. I love your idea of keeping the "stem" and sticking in the pot. Now I'll know better for next time. Thanks.
