this weekend’s theme

~ What is it? ~

Ok, so you know I got a new camera yesterday, right? I’ll put (nc) beside the new camera pictures because I know you’ll be curious over the next little while.

I’m always picking up weird stuff. And what makes me enjoy certain finds even more is having NO idea what they are.

Kinda like these guys. What is this stuff?!? Eh.. who cares. It was galvanized and kinda cool. And naturally I had NO idea what to do with it on collecting day.

 So then I start playing. Hmmm… it bends and holds it’s shape… could it hold something? How?

Say, maybe if I connected it behind this old crate sign I’ve had forever… ok, now what will it’s purpose be?

How about holding mail? I like it! (nc)

I needed it too! And it blends right in with the crate stairway and wacky artifacts on the wall.  (nc)

Let’s try one more.

What’s this crazy thing?!? No idea. But it’s pretty big.

And then it came to me. This one’s for Kolein. 🙂 She one time said I had the ability to stick a rusty something into the wall and make it sing as a toilet paper holder, so….

Oh.. so perfect! Hee! (nc)

So have I convinced you that you too can make nearly anything into a useful houseold must have? Good! Now go forth and then come on back and link up what you came up with in the 3rd themed linkup!

What’s your weirdest find to date?

  1. Oh my gosh, I am so in love with your new mail holder! The cow crate piece is so fantastic!! One of my goals for 2011 is to find more creative pieces for my home and not the same ol’ stuff from Target. You’re projects are such wonderul inspiration!

  2. Hi Donna-
    You, my friend are the junk transforming queen – love the toilet paper holder. Your style touches every inch of your home!!!

    Sorry to hear about your old camera, but it is very exciting to get a new one. I bet you are having fun learning all it’s bells and whistles and will be asking Miss Mustard Seed lots of questions now that your cameras are buddies. 🙂

  3. Love the toilet paper roll holder. Very nice! It actually goes along with my oddest find to date, which is actually my mother’s oddest find. It was an antique urinal that came from my step-dad’s uncle’s estate (that’s a mouth full). What did she use said piece for? Well, she hung it above the guest toilet as a flower pot. Yes, toilet turned flower pot. I cannot even express how upset she was when someone knocked it down and broke it. Not exactly something that people keep lying around, so she’ll probably never find another one.

  4. Seriously, your creativity always amazes me! I totally look forward to seeing what you have come up with each week. That mail holder is awesome! Thanks for the party!

  5. I love the toilet paper on the hook! You are awesome, thanks for hosting today. I think the top thingys are wall ties, my husband is a masonry contractor and that what they look like. You use them so much better!

  6. This is the first time I have been to your site ~ love it! What a fun party this is. I love your style and you have just enough sass to make you interesting. I will be back often. Thanks for a fun Saturday!!

  7. Thanks for hosting. And I just have to say, i just want to come spend a weekend with you and soak up your coolness. I love all your ideas and drool over everything you post. I think your who I want to be when I “finishing” growing up! LOL

  8. Hey lady… came across this awesome web site you need to see the picture front and center.. Velvet and Linen. They featured industrial design featuring a company called irons and duck. Oh my gosh… love it!

  9. Thank you, thank you, thank you! You have given me an idea for a desperately needed mail holder… Now to go looking through my “closet”, the shed and garage once the weather warms a bit… 🙂

  10. A little birdie told me that you mentioned my industrial chic post on Facebook. Thanks so much Donna! I’m thrilled! I no longer have an account but think it’s time I get one.

    Thanks again, and a good weekend to you!

  11. I love that mail holder, but those strips of metal are driving me mad, what the heck were they?!! Love the hook toilet roll holder – it looks like an old meat hook, I love the change in use 😀

  12. Love your reconfigured junk, Donna! Clever little T.P. holder. My son would surely use that as weaponry. Thanks for hosting the party. I’m happy to have something to share this week!

  13. Okay, seriously, I LOVE the TP holder!!! I’ve been needing one (right now it sits on the back of the toilet, or on the edge of the tub and then gets knocked in, ugh) but I have a meat hook that would be PERFECT for this! YAY!!! Thanks as always for the inspiration!
