We have had some almost spring-like weather the last week, that gives me hope that winter truly is coming to an end. Although I'm a pretty pitiful gardener, that doesn't keep me from still wanting beautiful flowers in my yard, and planting a few new plants each year, hoping they survive, despite me.
In the past, I've shared some really wonderful garden-related antique graphic printables, so I thought I would share the links to all those images again, in case you missed any of them. I hope to make some projects with these images myself soon, and hope you find some creative ways to use them, as well.

I've always loved old metal milk crates, because they make useful storage containers that look great, so I brought another one home a few weeks ago from an auction. This one had been well-used and is super rusty and some of the metal slats on the bottom were broke, so I thought it needed some attention to make it look special again.

I resisted the urge to go to the auction last weekend, so I could focus on working with all the stuff I already have. Junk can breed quickly, if you aren't careful, and my stash of junk has been reproducing all over my house. I've had a pair of cast iron legs that were removed from an antique sewing machine table for several months. They've been leaning against the wall in my entryway, and have fallen over several times, so it was time to turn them into something, before they landed on someone's toes.
