When you're an antique/junker and you love gardening, it's hard not to mix the two. My validation that I'm not totally off my crazy junking rocker is that I'm definitely not alone in my quest for mixing antique/vintage/rusty/found objects/junk with my flower beds and patios. I also validate my obsession with the number of followers and pins from by Junk Style Gardens board on Pinterest and the many boards on that subject (here's a list just typing in the words junk garden of boards created about the subject).
I'm also magazine obsessed with anything about garden related subjects to get ideas.(and these are just a FEW)
greenhouse shed. Since, I doubt this is going to happen, I'll have to use my imagination to make it my own Junk style Shed!
I know that once Spring rolls around, antiquer/junker shopper start looking for garden related junk for patios, homes and their actual gardens, so we at Sisters Treasures are prepared to meet that need. I'm in the process of getting my license to sell plants so I can share my special love of succulents in particular with our shoppers. I love to find unusal vintage items to plant my succulents in as well as to decorate my garden. I'm into upcycling treasures into garden statues and bird baths and birdhouses. Here's one project I'm working on:
I'll end this junk garden post with some of the junk items we have for sale this year:
|Succulents in old tins|
|Succulents in chicken feeders|
|more succulents in kitchen tools like this rusty sifter|
|Screen doors have so much potential on a patio or in a garden... trellis? potting bench backdrop?|
|birdcages and garden statues are always available with us.|
Here in Texas it's been in or near the 70s all week so it's hard not to start thinking of Spring, but if you're in the cold, cold North, perhaps this blog will be an imaginary escape of what's to come!
