Junkin' Love and 4th of July

I've been looking for a good deal on another set of brass stencils for the longest time.  Imagine my excitement when I found three sets.  Yes, three sets in one place.  Two brass sets and one galvanized set with all the letters, numbers, and symbols....not one missing piece.

I do love my junkin' adventures.

And I do love this great country!

These salt and pepper shakers are recent yard sale finds that I filled with beads and tiny red, white, and blue buttons.

Quick and easy picture, card, or letter holders.  The stem on the 18 gauge wire stays firmly in place with the help of the buttons and beads.

I hope everyone has a very happy and safe Independence Day celebration!!

  28. Just too cute! I have stencil numbers, but no letters. And, you found 3 sets! Love your little salt shakers to hold the letters. I will have to remember that idea.

  30. So cute. I found a whole at a garage sale a while back and tucked them away. I liked them, but wasn't even thinking of all these cute decorating ideas. Can't wait to use them now! I am new follower!
