  1. Susan that is so clever. We inherited a rusty spring with a bell tied to it on our back door when we moved and I must say it's the cutest antique I ever did see. Plus it dings every time someone comes in the door! Love your stands, have a great Christmas.

  2. I never run across springs. I will have to check ebay. It's a great idea.

  3. Shared this on Google+ and I will surely have to use it. I removed several old springs from an old chair I reupholstered last week and hubby almost threw them away [Yikes] but I rescued them!!!! Merry Christmas!!!!

    1. Thanks so much Peggy! Wow... I'm going to be on the look out for old chairs so I can pull out the springs... then I won't have to pay for them! Merry Christmas!

    1. Hi Patti-Ann... I got mine from ebay (or if you have an old chair that has springs you could pull it apart and use them) Happy Holidays!
