A little junk around town

While out for my walks this summer, I've run across some mighty fine looking junk in our town. Thought I'd share some of it with all you bloggers. These first few pictures are from my good friend, Alisons' yard...
Here's a cute little guy! This looks familiar! I sold this chair fountain creation at Junk Fest a couple years ago! It looks perfect in one of Alison's many garden areas...
I simply ADORE this. It's an old laundry basket filled with beautiful flowers on her back patio. Nice job, Alison!This is on Denise's front walk way...I've admired it all summer and asked if I could snap a photo...what a cute touch the umbrella and hat are, don't you think?And who doesn't love a rusty urn? It's in just the right spot in this gal's front yard!And last, but not least, while out visiting my sister in Southwestern North Dakota, I snapped a few shots of her beautiful yard. Perhaps her helping at Junk Fest has rubbed off a bit, cause low and behold, I noticed some cool junk tucked in here and there among her many perennials! Her hubby's old family mailbox isn't filled with mail any longer...Sigh. This is the rusty urn she bought at Junk Fest two years ago. It was actually part of an old stove. It's nice in her front yard, but it would look WAY better in mine (hint, hint sista)! Is it just me, or does junk seem to be everywhere?

  6. Flowers can make any junk the center of attention! Thanks for the pictures. They are a little inspiration to get in the garage and start cleaning up some junk!
