Trash to Treasure Cast Iron Garden Planters

I came across a really interesting booth while shopping at an antique show last month. The entire booth was packed full of junky junk that was spread out on the ground from one end of the space to the other. Most of it was nearly impossible to identify. My kind of junk!

Trash to Treasure Projects for the Vintage Street Faire


I've been busy all week trying to complete dozens of projects for my next vintage show on Saturday. This one's going to be a real treat because it's right here in town. It will be the first Downtown Tracy Vintage & Antiques Street Faire. We're long overdue for an event like this!

 I only had time to get a few pictures of some of the stuff I've been working on because I've been so busy with cleaning, repurposing, pricing, and packing. Oops. Just realized I didn't get a separate picture of the miniature windmill that I turned into a picture/business card holder. I glued a magnet to the back of a typewriter key, watch face, and rhinestone jewel.

Rustic Signs Made from an Old Crate


Signs are always a big hit at my vintage shows and I love making them out of rustic wood or unusual salvaged junk. These three signs have two things in common: they're all stenciled with Funky Junk Interiors Old Sign Stencils from the *Getaway Collection, and they're all made from the wood of a salvaged crate. I found an old crate at a yard sale for next to nothing because half the bottom was missing and the rest of it was falling apart. I knew just what I wanted to do with the wood after I easily disassembled it.

I white-washed one of the long sides and stenciled it with Bed & Breakfast.  A perfect fit!

How to Create a Bouquet with Aluminum Light Reflectors

Who remembers Christmas tree aluminum light reflectors? I was always fascinated with these delicate star-shaped and flower-shaped aluminum reflectors and how they made our tree lights and outdoor lights sparkle.

I'm not sure how safe the vintage reflectors are with their cardboard centers, but it's safe to say they make a fine looking bouquet.
So easy to care for and guaranteed to never die. Never ever!
