i shamelessly stole another project from the JUNK ladies. using an old drawer I found at our local architectural salvage shop - I screwed on little wooden legs to turn it into a tray. The drawer was a perfect square and only $1! (I just love that store - it's near the Rochester Public Market)
during my junk outings - I'm always picking up fun, cheap, OLD bottles. I PACKED the drawer/new tray with bottles of all diff shapes, sizes, & colors and then stuck little blooms from the garden in a couple of them.
VOILA! A unique new table centerpiece! sorry the photo is so dark. you'll have to click on it to make it larger and really see it. note 2 self - need more SUNLIGHT.
ps. another reason why the drawer touched my re-purposing HEART is b/c it has HAWKEYE printed on it. Kodak bought the Hawkeye camera line back in 1907 which sold for many years. Then also named a major plant Hawkeye which focused on lens work. I can just picture this drawer sitting in that plant decades ago. I love finding an OLD piece that has a connection to me.
Does anyone have a great FIND in which you shared a connection? Share ur story please!
