My Top Five Vintage Finds of 2013

Without a doubt my top four finds from 2013 were items I found for my junk gardens!  

1.  What Have I Bought Lately?  (posted June 3, 2013)

I bought this awesome barn door from a local antique/consignment shop owner for $30.  Worth every penny and more.

I used my barn door in a neutral vignette under a tree here.

2.  A New Potting Bench  (posted April 11, 2013)

It was love at first sight!  I couldn't get it off of my mind, and bought it the very next day.

This potting sink/bench that I purchased in the spring of 2013 inspired me to put together this whimsical outdoor kitchen vignette.

3.  A Good Day Consignment Shopping (posted April 6, 2013)

This wringer was drastically reduced in price one day at a local occasional shop, and I snatched it up for my laundry tub planters.

I think the wringer was a perfect garden accessory!

4.  Backdrops for a Country Cottage Junk Garden (posted July 29, 2013)

A $20 junky chain link gate was Top Vintage Find Number 4.

The old gate was perfect for a fall trio of junk pumpkins as well!

This old wooden box with chippy red and green paint first appeared on a bench in front of a sofa in my junk gallery wall post.

  3. I am inspired! I know the pieces I like, but I don't put things together in such a beautiful way as you do. Practice, I guess. Happy hunting in 2014!!
