I am soooooo ready to get outside and GARDEN! While I wait impatiently for spring to come to northern Minnesota, I am busy finding new garden junk!
A junkin' friend of mine that paints Mann Made Signs, and is a part owner of a local, antique shop gave me this old wooden ice cream freezer!
That's right! This was free GARDEN JUNK. It needed a little TLC, but I think it's going to make a great planter for the junk garden.
This is how the broken and rickety sides are held together, little wooden braces.
Because the drill wouldn't fit inside the freezer to sink the screws, I ended up going through the outside (and the screws show). I googled this FRE-ZEE-ZEE Freezer Deluxe and did not find even one exactly like it with the squarish shape, and outer red handles. I love it's chippy blue paint.
We have an anniversary sale going on at work so I borrowed some daisies to stage my new planter.
Here are more of my new summer garden junk finds. A chippy red lantern, vintage geranium canisters, and a large (1960's) seed packet framed in a barn wood frame.
Time to go in and warm up!!!!!! It's only about 40 degrees outside!
