Saved From the Trash Bin!


An old TV tray, rusted and forlorn and about to be picked up
by the trash collectors.  But ... I just could not let that happen.
It called to me.





I washed it and sanded away the rust.  Brought out some paint, some vintage
seed packets and some buttons.  My Mom gave me a big box of old
buttons recently and they have been working their way into various craft projects.



So now this sad and forlorn tray has been turned into a cottage garden
tray that will be used again and again.  Don't you love finding old junk
and giving it new life?

I know some other bloggers who love to breathe new life into
old junk too ~


Watch out Bentley ~ Momma's in a salvage mood.  You never 
know what she might drag home!

Hugs,
Susan and Bentley

  17. Glad I'm not the only one that digs things out of the trash. Found two items on Saturday that someone had put on the curb for the trash man.
