The Power of Attraction & a Big Pulley

Do you believe in the Power of Attraction?

 I wanted an old ladder, and BANG I found an old ladder.

Then I wanted an old tool box, and BANG again.... an old tool box!

Well holy moly, I wanted a big old pulley and I stopped
at a garage sale this summer on the way to pick up my kids from the bowling alley and


A beautiful old pulley!

Five bucks!

Now you have to understand, we don't live near any barns,
the chances of finding some of these things in suburbia is slim at best.

But I've found most of the things I covet in those fancy catalogs.

Power of Attraction???


Here is what I used the pulley for.

I had the chandelier over my kitchen table, there is no electric, it just holds candles.

Pretty plain, wrought iron.

One day a friend discovered that a bowl would fit perfectly in the center of the circle.

Like this...

Love it there!

And now as my junk-luck would have it, I found this awesome old pulley.

How lucky can ya get? 

Maybe I should hope to find a pot of gold next!
