K.I.S.S. (Keep it Short Saturday) Gardenjunk

 fountain 016

I love me some junk in the yard. 

Especially if it’s red.

Or white……

Gotta go now, it’s trash day somewhere!


I’m linking up to Along for The Ride; ‘Saturday is Crafty Day #2’

Also linking up to Donna’s Saturday night special Garden Features party! 


  1. Oh my gosh, I love that stuff. My favorite color is red and you have some really cool ideas!

  2. Rose, you can't beat red AND rusty! the toolblox planter is great. And you know I love, love, love the flag! (always have)
    also love the wheelbarrow, the tulip flower BED, the scooter and the boot!
    I have enough windows to make me one of those adorable little houses, what do you call it? It's not really a green house, right?
    I love all of your wonderful yard beauties!

    have a great weekend!

  3. What an inspiring post - I really need to see things like this to remind myself to look outside the box in order to find the whimsical. Thank you so much - there is nothing better than this to read on a Saturday morning with the full weekend ahead of me!

  4. Rose~ great stuff! absolutely love that red rusty tool box planter.
    The wheelbarrow, and the boot are nice too.
    cute idea with the lamp! does it work? didn't see any wires(maybe you have them hidden really well) otherwise it just looks like the perfect jewel hanging there on the fence...either way, I love it!

  5. Oh! how could I forget that flower bed? That is darling too! always wanted one of those--maybe someday.

  6. Be still my heart! I love the garden junk pictures you posted today. I love anything old and rusty for the yard. Your KISS post today packed a lot of punch.

  7. I love these ideas, I am going to have to go through my junk! They are great!

  8. I saw you at the Along for the Ride linky party and your red tool box caught my eye right off the bat. I am in love with it. I will be on the look at for sure when I am at garage sales. I have red stuff in my garden too. Can't beat red!

  9. HAAA!!! I LOVE THE FLOWER "BED" OF TULIPS!!! soooooo adorable!

  10. Just came across your blog from Funky Junk. Love it. I had to take a look at all the posts. Last week I posted a curb side find. Aren't they the best. It was amazing how it transformed and sold so quickly. Your creations are just wonderful.

  11. Wow Rose, I just love your garden! I think your red tool box is my favorite! Especially since it's filled with pansies! But your tulip bed is adorable too!

  12. WOW! I love everything about your yard~it's beautiful!
    You are so creative!

  13. I love all of these ideas! I especially like the tool box. Thanks for linking up this week.

  14. OH I LOVE IT ALL!!!!!

    I have some old metal tool boxes and this is a great way to use them.
    I was going to put flowers in them, but on the metal brackets, great!!

    thanks for having such a fun place to visit.

  15. Rose your creativity amazes me. I love the way you use every day things and work them into pieces of art in your garden!!

  16. Wow that's amazing! I just don't have the eye for that kind of stuff. I love it though!!

  17. I'm diggin' that tool box on the brackets, nice job.

  18. Saw you @ Funky Junk, and immediately had to come visit. My husband is a Snap-On salesman and this is a GREAT idea. Goes to show that we overlook our obvious items at home, but recognize good ideas when someone else has them! Thanks!!

  19. I love the red, too. And I just planted in some boots, too!

  20. I'm in love!!! Great garden ideas. Check out my blog and my garden chair, so fun to use junk in the garden~~~

  22. What a clever idea, using the tool box for a planter. I just love how it turned out. You have so many cute ideas in your yard. Awesome

  23. You never fail to disappoint! I love what's been done with all this stuff! That tool box is a hoot! Is this all in your own yard? Awesome. :)
