Getting Ready

Here are a few things I have ready for our show.

I made this sign--we stole the name junk fest from the North Dakota girls--we did have permission from them Ü.

I planted up an old ice cream maker-see the paddle in the top. This coat hook, purse hanger, etc. was made from the top of a different ice cream maker. I didn't have a complete one.

Here are some more junky plants on a cool tripod thingy I got at a garage sale for $3.

This wooden box was plain--I painted it and decoupaged the Little Red Riding Hood pictures on it (they are from a 1953 book).


This is a simple little side/drink table made from a tray and stool.

Oh, and some people wanted to see the green shutter plant hanger with flowers--I chose white lobelia (sp?) and white dragonsnaps.

  2. Love all your ideas! And your earlier post of the green shutters inspired me to create my own. I've got my pieces and parts gathered up and hope to get it put together over this weekend. Good luck with your sale - you should do great with such wonderful creations.
