It's the weekend. I hope you have some wonderful springtime plans to get outside and enjoy the sunshine.
Before I share my junkin' find with you, I just wanted to say "THANK YOU" to so many people who have left the sweet comments on my blog posts recently. You have overwhelmed me with your compliments and kindness. I always try to reply to every comment that I receive because I really DO appreciate your thoughts. However, this past couple of weeks, I've met myself coming and going with life getting in the way of my creative fun. So, I hope that this blanket THANK YOU on my blog will let you know how much your comments mean to me.
And now ... on with my junkin find. Last week, my wonderful friends and crafting buddies took me to Spring Creek Antiques and Tea Room in Ozark, Missouri for a belated birthday lunch and day of junkin'. We had so much fun and while we were out hitting the flea markets, I found this adorable rusted tricycle. I immediately fell in love with it and just had to bring it home with me.
Other than there being no rubber tires (which endears it to me even more), it was in great shape. I love the old rusted, pitted metal and the patina that has already started. So, I sprayed it with a matte finished outdoor sealer in hopes of preserving it in this condition.
This morning, I picked up a couple of terra cotta pots and some pretty little spring flowers and planted them up. Now they adorn my sweet little vintage trike.
I wonder who's tricycle this was. Was it originally bright red with streamers on the handlebars? Did a child receive it as a Christmas gift? I guess I will never know but I do know that I will give it a good home and a good repurposed life!
Enjoy your weekend!
