I found 2 of these aqua glass battery jars at the Goodwill a while back...I did a happy dance!!
I filled them with junk ;)
Gotta have a few chipping charmers
More aqua glass...I resisted the urge to fill these with junk too ;)
I was actually going to hang this crusty canning rack about the sign...but when I set it here to go grab my hammer...I decided this was more fun...unexpected?
Clipped on a couple of paper birds...for cute.
Do you remember my drafting tool son spotted that one at a barn sale.  Of course we had to have it.
Another battery jar down low.
I made some of these strike plate crosses for friends this Christmas.  Perfect for Easter too...wish I could find more plates!!
And a barn trolley turned junky bird cage...why not?

I LOVE switching things up for Spring! This year I decided to keep it simple on the mantel using my collection of aqua glass...and lots of junk. It makes me HAPPY :)
