Garden Junk

Homeroad has some gooood garden junk for the summer!

Links to some of these projects 
can be found in the photo captions....

A little grill bling.... 
(ah 1959... it was a very good year to be born)

Garden decorating... 
I've got it covered, the plants.... 
not so much!

The garden sign was fashioned from an old lamp table...

The strainer within a planter adds layers...

Rusty Cross

Rusty vintage tub on wheels, aluminum pots and rusty funnels...

An old metal toolbox got a second look...
(and over 2K shares on Hometalk's Facebook page!)

 I don't own a bird so a plant will just have to do...

Old window frames and shutters add interest
 to an unused corner of the yard...

And a couple of junky birdhouses for my fine feathered friends...

Thanks for visiting... with any luck
my plants will begin to thrive in all their 
lovely junky containers this summer!

  3. Love the idea of putting the windows and shutters in your landscaping. Actually, love it all :)

  4. I needed that motivation to "junk up" my gardens. Beautiful!

  5. I LOVE all these ideas, especially the deliciously rusty container with the chick and the windows used as background for the hosta containers... We do rust and junk in the garden... ~~ Sue at

  6. The only year I can think of that was better than '59 would of been '58.
