Winter WonderLand!. I took an old screen window I found and painted a snowman on it and added the words Let it Snow to the top, it is now ready to hang on the wall for the holidays.
Quilters shelf made out of old barn wood. I filled an old oil can with old spools and added some other sewing finds to it.
Gearing up for more junk! I decorated this old gear I found, now I just have to hang it up

Junksister writes: This is my first comment and I am so glad I stumbled across this site. Have been a junker for awhile now and am anxious to see all the fun stuff everyone creates. I have done a snowman like this but used some fabric whipped stitched to the screen. If the screen had a hole in it I extended the snowman through it to give it dimension. Cannot wait to explore the site more. Keep up the great work! Posted: 12:11 pm on November 16th
Debbiejean writes: Yes, the gear has a wooden handle which I think I will hang an old lantern from when I hang it up. The gear was found at my husbands farmstead. I have no idea what piece of equipment it is from. The snowman was painted with craft paint. I put saran wrap on the back of the screen before painting and then peeled it off when it was dry.

One was my Moms when she was a young girl (very cool black one) and one was my sister and mine (ivory and red colored). I'm thinking my black one that was my Mom's needs to come out of hiding and receive a more prominent place of display.
Love the gear. It almost looks as though it was from a vintage sewing machine or a farm tool, as it looks like it has a wood knobbed handle on it. Does it?

Your snowman is such a fun piece! And the gear...very cool! On your shelf, is that a tiny sewing machine (maybe two??)? Cute!

Janis...we're going to have to go on a hunt for a gear I guess...! :)
