I found this box of things at a flea market
not just your old run of the mill things either
these were gorgeous
There are very few things that will make me giddy
these made me light headed and giddy
they were rusty
they were heavy iron
they had great lines
they were going home with me!
How much do you want for these; I asked nonchalantly
as if I could take em or leave em
$5 a piece…hmmm
okay I guess I’ll take them…
and that, and these, and this too!
Good thing we were parked close because my arms were about 2″ longer after carrying them to the truck.
I was so excited about my new…my new; what were they?
We have to go back I told hubby; I have to know what these are.
When the guy saw me coming back he thought he had hit the lottery until I told him I was only back to asked what those things were.
Any guesses before I spill this beans?
Maybe I’ll wait and tell you at the end of the post…for now lets see all the fun ways to use them!
Awesome candle sticks!
They work in just about every room!
Just look how lovely the shape is…
Is it just me?
It looks as if it’s been turned on a lathe.
I am just crazy about this thing!
This makes me laugh!
reminds me of an Olympic flame
or the Statue of Liberty flame 🙂
not my style but it could work for some.
How about on the patio or garden
We use citronella candles a lot on our patio…nasty skeeters.
How about a vase for some silk flowers?
Don’t have silk flowers? Me either…I have wire and beads though!
Rusty Wire Flowers…sweet uh?
I won those beads in a give-a-way last week from Natalie at NKP Designs.
I love her beads and use them in a lot of my cross designs…now I have another reason to buy more…Yay
So did you figure out what they were used for or where they came from?
I bet you did
The guy told me they are spacers…or at least that is what he calls them.
they were used in between the discs on a
combine *discer, used in seeding the crops.
How would you use them in your home?
I would love to hear your ideas.
*one of my readers led me in the right direction. thank you.
