Over the Easter weekend, my son and I head out to our fav local hot spot, Harrison Hot Springs. And our first stop brought us right on Rusty’s doorstep. WHOOOHOOO!
This is going to be Part 1 of 3 of our Easter weekend, because I’m a little heavy where pictures are concerned. You don’t mind, do you?! Even if I promise you more delish junk?
Anyway, let’s see what Rusty’s had today!
I love heading into their outside compound the most. The kinda stuff that keeps getting rustier resides here and the prices are reasonable. Spot anything you like? I sure do!
I’d bet your eye caught this wind turbine. I really REALLY wanted it but… eh… I wanted it for nothing and it cost something. So I moved on. But it sure would have made a cool light fixture. And being that I’ve yet to make a light fixture, it would have sat in my garage for at least a year or 2. Next time!
Yes, this sweet little porcelain (I think?) kettle came home with me. It weighed a TON. I’ve never seen one made out of (what I think is??) porcelain before. It felt like a vintage kitchen sink if that makes sense. I should learn my p’s and q’s when it comes to naming stuff. Or just shop with Miss Mustard Seed. She knows the name of everything.
I couldn’t resist. The rusty teal and metal combo of this little tackle box did me in. And the fact that it can hold stuff makes it productive. SOLD.
Intriguing tear drop shaped rusty ol’ shovel. Anyone know what it’s meant for? I didn’t haul it home but it was cool. Maybe I should have?
THIS was just a bin full of fun! That chrome bumper would have been ultra cool in a flower bed. Imagine a row of abundant red geraniums growing right behind it. Remind me why I didn’t bring this home, please?! Probably price… that always seems to be a thing with me.
I also loved the red gas can but drew a blank on what to do with it. I just loved the pop of red.
This old timer of a ripped chair just made me smile. It’s intriguing to look at though, gotta admit. The shape and colour was so cool. I could see this thing covered in the garden with succulents, all creepy like.
But I left it… because I needed room for….
THIS! Ok, I wish.
Not so junky. This barely baby blue old timer hot rod was jaw dropping magnificent. I attempted to have the owners stand in the picture because they just belonged with that car. Just beautiful!
This tall, rusty metal ammunition crate came home. Oh, this is gonna be so fun…
Any guesses what I have in mind? Here’s a hint… I’m bringing it along to the Milner Village Garden event I’m talking at on April 9th. I have BIG plans for this sweet thang.
What would you use it for?
And then my heart absolutely burst….
… and broke, all within a matter of 5 minutes. This piece was indeed sold but let me tell you, I totally embarrassed my son the way I was squealing and going on and on about it. It was $90 and I would have paid it in a heartbeat, only because this piece was so unique.
I wanted this storage unit (swimming lockers?) so bad I would have given up my fridge if it was the last place to put it.
After this find, I truly had to take a few deep breaths and chill until I could break out of my instant, deep, dark depression.
I have no idea what I’d do with it but I don’t care! What would you have used it for? I mean, crafts, tools, storing more junk, I just don’t even know. But I still don’t care!
Ok, I’m back. I had to scroll to ditch that picture from my depressed mind. I’m good now.
Because I get to play with these guys! Coming soon to a monitor near you!
Next up.. you will LOOOOVE where we went next. It’s called The Back Porch. Coffee, junk and so much more. Stay tuned for Part 2!
