Salvaged

While out 'at the farm' I found these rusty old pieces destined for the scrap metal man. They are SO heavy. My fatherinlaw smirked when I lugged them up to the house. I am always finding old junk to take home. Secretly, I think he loves that I love it.



 These old brake drums make a perfect little home for some succulents, I think.


Are you a fellow lover of old crap treasure too? Would you have left these behind? I'd love to know if you have any other wonderful ideas for them.

Hi, oh yes, a definite lover of old tatt. What a great idea to put plants in those drums, there is probably loads of other stuff in that pic you could do similar with. Old beds make good frames for raised veg beds too! x

I think it's brilliant what you've done with them! I too am a sucker for old stuff, the rustier the better :) This has given me a few ideas in the future.

Oh yep I would love this too. I dragged a big old concrete laundry tub out from underneath Betsy to fill up with herbs. mel x

I would have a field day poking through all that lovely old 'rubbish' Lea. Loving the succulents in your drums - def worth a bit of hard yakka to get them home x

It looks gorgeous. Yes I would have taken them too! I still have the old school bags that Grandy had put on the bonfire - Dave hates them.

They look beautiful Lea! I am mad on our local tip, have picked up a rusted old bread tin which I planted geraniums in, plus a couple of old bird cages. One is a beautiful blue and it's hanging in a tree (empty of course!) and the other is yellow and it needs a spruce up. I will grow something up it along my fence.
