It doesn’t get much better than autumn in New England. The cold nights awaken to cool, crisp, colorful days that you wish would last forever. This vintage shopping cart is a recent flea market find that was destined to hold falls harvest.

Aren't we all lucky that people don't always take care of their stuff and we are able to snatch them up and make them useful again. Great display, Mr. Junk Architect! Posted: 8:21 am on October 22nd

CottageElements writes: Jim, I love your little cart! I've always wanted on of those. Looks great with all your fall accessories! Wish it was still looking like fall here. Snow just kind of distracts from the fall feeling :( LOL!

You have no idea how much we Minnesotans are appreciating this post! Mums and gourds just recently displayed are now under 5 inches of snow. I think I'll photograph that!! Or maybe I'll just pack up my fall junk and hit the road for warmer places!! This is a great idea as always. Thanks!

Be Well,
