Free Junk

Yesterday while visiting at my Aunt's house, she showed me an old set up that my Grandpa used to sharpen knives. After seeing my junk garden posts, I think she thought I could or would use it.



Of course I immediately saw possibilities...



And dragged the stuff home, along with a free chicken feeder she was giving away.



Well whatever these two iron things are, they worked perfectly for hen and chicks. My husband thinks they are some kind of vintage pulleys.



I had a little spot under the tree that I thought might work for the biggest, neatest part of the sharpener. I cleared out a little spot for it by moving a few sedums.


It was convenient that I had just bought this $2 pail yesterday at garage sales.


Kmart had this $5.99 basket of red impatiens that looked pretty healthy.





This is such an interesting piece of junk, it could almost be a vignette on it's own.
