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.
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.
