Why not add a little junk to the yard. It's fun and gives your yard a lot of character. Make it a funky, junky yard! Vintage, rusty items are a great addition. Here is a sample of some of the things I have.
Does this bag look familiar? Sue from JunkMarket had it in Texas. Fell in love with it and convinced her to save it for me. I looks awesome on my front door. For guests, I just added a vase and some fresh flowers tucked inside of it.
Not sure what this piece was, but it makes a great fern stand. Love the metal tins on the sides. The chippy paint is the icing on the cake!
What a better place to display your fan collection than your front porch! I also have a larger sign that says air conditioned. Just haven't found a place to hang it from yet!
Here's another of my favorite things, motel chairs. One I original purchased from the Junk Market sales when they had them. The other I found at an antique store. Cool how they match! The table between them came from some factory. It has great patina!
Here's a close-up. The bird cage came with no bottom, but works perfectly to showcase this potted plant.
This is an old turkey feeder. It's great as a planter! Feed, water, grow!
This concrete planter has a little wear, but that makes me love it even more. I've stuck part of a toy axel and wheel in it for a little junk decor.
Isn't this a great green chair! I found it at an occasional sale. It fits perfect in my front garden. The cupola is another of my favorate finds.
I don't know what it is with me and fences, but I seem to have a few. Here's a couple of them. The feeders on the larger gate are great with candles. The smaller gate has a perfect place to hold planters.
This is a newer cart, but has weathered being outside. Love it that way. All I added was a large bird house created from architectual finds and a vintage coffee pot with flowers. The house numbers were purchased at a JunkMarket sale years ago, and when we moved replaced the numbers with our current ones.
This is a new urn, but an old style. The stick I placed inside is new as well, but has a vintage feel.
Another old chicken feeder (do I seem to have a thing with chicken feeders, too??). Love the stenciling on it. It's also great with votives.
Isn't this a great piece to hold a planter. Bet you can't guess what it used to be! Check the next picture . . .
It's a wheel axel from an old car. It's missing one of the sides and someone at one point painted it green. Ain't it neat!
This was some sort of dispenser. I found the wash stand for it separately. It's a little on the rusty side so I wouldn't want to use it for beverages. It looks great with a plant in it though!
I just saw a mesh chair like this in Country Living. Very fun vintage chair and great in the garden!
