Upon returning from the Snap conference, I was pleasantly surprised to come home with our lilac tree in full bloom!
In order to get that amazing fragrance in the house pronto, a few blooms were cut and set inside vintage jars of water.
The jars created instant vases once placed inside this old HUGE toolbox, found at a local thrift. But with all that blank space on the outside of the wood, I had to fill it with something.
Rummaging around in my luggage that was still packed, I pulled out the vintage tap handles, fresh from Salt Lake City.
They are from George’s Architectural Salvage. Just wait till you see this place…
When I summoned for help on Facebook asking where to go junkin’, George’s was suggested, so I gave him a call.
Well, they weren’t open. But George’s brother Chris was able to meet me there to open the store. Just for me. Wow.
Here’s a little more of the outdoor yard. Tell me this place doesn’t drive you into a junk pickin’ frenzy!
Anyway, I was so over the moon thrilled that George wouldn’t take no for an answer and wanted me to come, explaining they at times open the store to those that can’t come by another time. So glad I did and so glad I had Chris give me the tour! Thanks so much, guys!

I also picked up something else from them I’ll show you another time.
Thanks to George and Chris, my fireplace mantel is very, very junk happy once again.
If you visit them, please let them know you saw this post. I’d LOVE for them to know that crazy Canadian they let in on an off day was worth it.
