Organized Clutter: Junk Garden Tour 2014

Welcome to Organized Clutter's 2014 Junk Garden Tour!  This year I asked my friend and coworker, Val,  to photograph my tour.  Val has a great camera, and is a great photographer.  
So sit back and view my gardens through her eyes and her lens.  The macros are amazing!
