A holiday tink'ling at The Shed...

The sun shines in at Friend's Candle Shed to begin a season of hopes for many families struggling in these troubling times. The Shed has brought in local artisans, as the imports from abroad are slowly replaced by gifts from home...
...simple pleasures, nothing extravagant, as Americans tighten their belts...we build anew,
rethinking the American dream.

Recycled bowling pins will never see a landfill, as Piper restyles into funky yard ornaments, a snowman of modern proportions stands partners with a Christmas tree...

a concrete Santa in white...

and in Christmas colors...

...to die for vintage wreaths...

...fun stuff to decorate your home...

...and funky ice buckets to chill your favorite brews...

...all in the fun of a season of spirits and family and memories, as Friend's Candle Shed and Sweet Repose conjure up memories anew for the year 2009...a year to remember...
and a time to renew...
HOPE...

Lo-o-ove the chenille wreathes! I'm hoping because money is so tight this year that people will seek out the unique instead of the same old, same old that Walmart and others are offering. Unique is what we as junkers offer, right? Right!
Trash

The displays look great, Sharon! And the wooden bowling pin snowmen are super clever - hats off to Piper! My grandpa used to make lamp bases out of them - they have such an appealing shape.

Keep those pictures coming - it's fun to see what you're up to!

i am smiling BIG BROAD toothy smile at your vintage wreaths. Robin hates them. I had one but it took me two years to find it in the packing boxes and it hangs in my living room window. I found 3 more on our trip to Ohio, so have 4 of these wreaths this season. It is truly in the eye of the beholder. Crap to some, treasure to others.
