Make a Tea Light Holder from a Pulley and Scrap Wood

Most of you know by now that I love rusty stuff. I love it a lot! I don't always have an immediate plan for the rusty bits and pieces I bring home, but it's good to know that when inspiration strikes I can always rely on my rusty junk treasure box.

I had a rusty pulley/tea light moment while I was searching for a board to use in another project.
 I think these pieces were all meant to be together.

Repurposed Ceramic Heater Bricks


What the heck are ceramic heater bricks? Remember these interesting looking things I showed you a few weeks ago in my post The End of my Junking Dry Spell?  If you've ever lived in an older home, you might know that these decorative bricks were used for heat radiation in old gas space heaters, and they were made in several different sizes, shapes, and patterns. I rarely see them at flea markets or vintage shows, but they can still be found online by searching vintage ceramic gas heater bricks
How to repurpose old ceramic heater bricks
I repurposed my first decorative brick about 10 years ago, so I knew exactly what I wanted to do with this pair.

Let's Go Shopping at Remnants of the Past


I did something on Friday that I've never done before.  I finally had a chance to visit one of the most popular antique shows in California, Remnants of the Past.  Every time they make their way up to Northern California, I'm either out of town or I'm busy doing something else. Not this time. Want to take a little tour?

Fleurs Garden Tote and a Tiny Sign

Flowers, flowers, and more flowers! That's what I've had on my mind lately, and when I throw a little rustic metal in the mix, I'm as happy as a family of aphids on my rose bushes. That's another story.

I'm kind of loving the contrast between the white and lavender blooms, the rustic metal tote, and the wood slice letters.  Playing in the garden and playing with a few yard sale finds is always a fun way to spend a spring afternoon.
