Old Metal Strainers

Off to the little booths today to set up a few items;
wanted to share these old metal/wire strainers that are "repurposed" for other ways~and~means:

I bent up the handle on two of them so they could hang on the wall (or fence);

sweet supporting a pretty flower pot.

Painted and stencilled a little wooden box and "made" two old books with some scrape fabric for the binders~~

That large baking tray is industrial size; painted with chalk paint then mod-podged on some French script papers~~

Okay; off to the booths to do some fluffing; may stop by a junk shop or two on the way home!

Have a great Blessed day; know that the Lord is with you always; He wants you to be happy and have your abundance in life!

Grateful for you being here~~



  1. How refreshing! And appropriate for the first day of spring. I lurk around your blogsite often, but rarely comment. Don't you just hate that? So, here- letting you know I came, I saw, I loved, I commented! :)

  2. Hi Patty, same here! This project is a good one...something pretty like this will be a nice addition to my front porch! Thanks for the share... Wishing you a Happy Spring! Hugs...

  3. I swear Patty you CAN make a purse out of a sow's ear! What pretty flower baskets they would make. xo

  4. It all looks just wonderful. Someone should buy the entire vignette!

  5. Love the idea for the strainers, Patty! The one you filled looks wonderful. Love the painted wood box, too.
