 Here is a great idea for a spring planter.....
Just put an old sap bucket filled with grass/flowers in the frame of an old rusty lampshade and you have a unique junk
garden decorating idea.
Project by ME....

Happy day!

Oh my gosh.....what a gorgeous week we are finally having here on the West Coast!!!!
And to top that off I just had 2!!!! full days in a row (well almost) to work on projects....that is a real rarity!!!
Can't ever thank my family enough for being so patient and understanding with me as my "projects" always seem to take over every square inch of living space---the garage, to the kitchen, to the dining room, to the family room, to my art room, to the basement, to my husband's office, to the backyard, to the bedroom...you get the idea!!!!!
 I am so blessed to have three wonderful sons and an amazing husband who are always there to help me.....from lifting heavy furniture, picking stuff up off the road for me, going thrifting with me, trying on jewelry and aprons for me, and on and on!!!
You know your kids "get you" when they finally get their drivers license and come home with "junk" in the back of their car saying "I saw this on the side of the road and knew you would like it"!!!
I love them all "beyond words"....
Happy Mother's Day to all my blogging friends!

PS....I see these pictures are labelled with my old business name "junkdreams"....how many names  have I used?  Let's see....there was junkstyle, then junkdreams, then vintagedreams, then rust & ruffles, and now it's just rust.....my businessman husband says it really isn't good for marketing to keep changing your business name....oh well....I'm so not a "businesswoman" anyways..much too flaky for that!!!

Came across these pictures today and can't believe I've never posted them on my blog!  They show "the barn" in its glory during our Spring Festive Nest sale last year.  Credit for these beautiful pictures goes to the very talented Kim Christie.
And credit for the most delicious styling goes mostly to my very talented friend, Angela Kent 
 Don't you just wish you could move in to this sweet barn!!!!
 This was the page our sale made in Romantic Country Magazine!
Well, I've been busy getting ready for the Old Farmhouse Vintage Market in June and have my fingers crossed (doubly so) that I might still get a spot at the Scout Vintage Market in May (although at this late date it doesn't look like it--the competition is pretty tough to get a spot in this popular market).  Also talked to Angela recently and she is toying with having a summer sale!  Yippee!
Hope all my blogging friends are well....just can't seem to find the time for much blogging lately, but think of you all often.

Happy Spring Days!
