Today I went to a Junk Yard ... what fun !!!
I will do a post on this later, but wanted to show you this useful object I picked up today. Actually the junker guy gave it to me.
The back edge is bent, but that is okay because I wanted it flat across the back so I could hang it on the wall.
I hammered the bend out ... drilled a hole for a wire hanger. A pair of scissors on a string is always handy. I put a large ball of twine inside and ran a length of green garden twine through the bottom opening. Here, I have a very convenient string holder for my garden room, kitchen, shop or wherever I need some twine. Even with the ball of twine inside, there is still room for a cute bird and her nest. Mixed with other string holders, like the shabby white metal ball, the Country Store cone of string and a Carpenter's twine on a stick makes a pretty vignette.
Would also be very pretty with a nice blooming plant or in this case ... an artificial one.
