Free Junk & I need you detectives to find something for me-again

It's funny, once the word gets around that you are a junker, People just start sending stuff your way. I f you are lucky that is. I was recently given this great haul of white shutters

And I found this great shutter in the trash

And don't you just love that iron piece in front of it. That wasn't free, but it was a good price. Of course it's part of an old sewing cabinet, but I thought it had the look of the lower portion of an old clock. don't know what I'm gonna do with it yet, but I had to have it.

do you remember this freebe?

Well I painted it, distressed it (of course) and then for the cushion I covered it in a part of a coffee bean burlap bag.

writing on bag is slightly askew on purpose.

My friend gave me these "ugly" light fixtures she found in her attic
Well I found this tag attached to one of them.
Wow that is a lot of money. Now they are not so "ugly".

After TamiV was so great and found my Platter (which I have received and LOVE)
I have another item for you to find. It seems I've seen them recently, in a catalog or something. I'm sure they'll be all over the place in a year, but for now I'd like to find a distributor for pots like this.

I purchased one that was urn shaped, and I love it, but would love to have more and to offer them for sale. Any ideas???

I LOVE how the chair turned out!! Where in the world did you find that fabric though? ? In regard to the iron piece, I agree with it having the look of an old clock. . . I think you should go with that idea. Use a circular piece of wood (or anything else circular and with all the #'s I'm sure you already have on hand - purchase a "clock kit" and you've got it. (just an idea. . .) Let us know your final "design"

Love the shutters! There is always a use for them, and something to be done with them. I have 1 in my kitchen on the side cabinet that a small floral pc was added at bottom, and found a couple of mini kitchen utensils to hang from the corner of the shutter which is white.

I love that iron pc. How unique, and your mind does wonder with what it could be.

Good luck with all the gifts & your finds. Enjoy:)
