Rusty Bike Wheel

I never thought a rusty old bike tire would look good in my home.
It just goes to show that you shouldn't be too set in your ways!
I passed these tires up once, but not twice!
 
 
The rubber was off, an obvious bonus.
Since the ones I've been seeing online are with out.
I did hack saw off part of the center so it wouldn't scuff walls
and to cut down on weight.
 
 
I stiff brush helped brush out lose rust & tire gunk.
Those wires were easy to snip out too.
 
 
The results?
 
Unique clipboard!
 
 
Oh so cute!
This one sold right away.
 
You might think they'd be best hung on a wall.
But I set mine on the buffet in front of a large picture.
It looks amazing.

I bought a few Easter postcards at
a recent occasional sale called Annie's Cottage.
 
I also made a tag using some fun Tim Holtz products.
 
 
 
There is something so fresh & pure about white pottery.
It really lightens up my dark display.
I just love it, and these two items were a steal for just a dollar each.
Man I love garage sales.

  2. I saw a bicycle wheel on a blog and loved it. I actually found one on-line at Sav-On Crafts, but didn't buy it. Now seeing yours reminds me that I want one. I am your newest follower.
