Lovely metal hanging gidget of some sort I've added to my desktop. Ever since I found this one on a "curbside archaeology expedition", I've been inspired to look for similar hangers, like those metal mug trees that were so popular in the past. This one not only allows you to hang items from the pretty curved hangers, you can also stick paper goods in the body and I love that my mousepad calendar fits perfectly in the top. It is a great place to have inspiration pieces displayed and notes to myself.

Welcome to JUNKMARKET Style! This is a beautiful project....well thought out and executed. It makes me smile to think it was once a mug tree. So much better this way. Can't wait to see more project from you.

Take care,
