Penny's Junk Yard

It is no secret that I love to go junkin' and today I'm going to show you some of my junk!   Not everything around here is pretty and pink.  Welcome to Penny's Junk Yard!
Beyond that blue door is something that is not a pretty sight...don't follow me back there if you are squimish!

Come on into the Junk Yard......if you dare!

To get to the "yard"  you must first go down a long path of careful..sometimes things reach out and grab you!

the path is littered with old bikes...

wrought iron....wicker...mostly stuff that will eventually get painted (white or pink, of course) and repurposed..

Then.......... finally reach the "yard"  ....gasp!  How did this happen, where did all this junk come from?  

all those old ladders.... a little blue garden tin man... is that a horse shoe flower ?

bed springs, our old mower, chicken wire tomato cage,  the wuggy....a bucket of horseradish!

are those body bags???  Scary isn't it???   (those bags contain the yard scare crows... packed away for the season)

old garden tools...hay tines..cinder blocks, barrel dollies....

vintage mowers..

hay trolleys...

old rusted heaters...

even a porta potty1

metal baskets...

old windows...even an office chair down at the end.
I also have another side yard that is full of junk that I will show you someday!      On a brighter note, we are ready to paint the brick on the studio white and that blue door will be painted white too!  I can't wait to show you when we are done.
Til next time!♥-fridays-link-party-531

    I saw many things in your "Junkyard" that I wanted to grab and redo!!
    Can't wait to see what's in your other yard!!


  11. When I saw the word "junk" at Share Your Cup's party, I had to take a look. Right up my alley. Love all your junk! I especially love the sign, "To the junk yard". That gave me a chuckle. Hope you'll visit me and check out some of my junkin finds. Blessings to you - Dawn @ We Call It Junkin

  17. I love your junk! Recently, I saw a Radio Flyer attached to an old Singer sewing machine base and they were using it as a drink server with lots of ice and sodas. With all of your wagons, you could have LOTS of parties!! Lynda

  18. How many treasures!!! I love your junk, Penny!

  19. I am just plain jealous....I have never seen so much gorgeous junk!

  20. What a fun tour! And, unlike our junk around here, yours is all organized and in one place. :-)

  21. This is a SUPER post, I've enjoyed it very much. I adore old wagons. I hope you don’t mind that I’ve reposted it at my gallery, “The Blog Post Office”. It’s like a reverse show and tell link up. Please let me know if you are not happy with that, I can always remove it for you. But I’m really hoping you won‘t mind as all the posts will be a gallery of wonderful items.

    Thank you so much, Victoria Lavender

  22. Oh my! As soon as my husband gets home, I am making him check out this post. Then he won't think that my pile of junk in our shop is so bad! Thanks for the help, Penny:-)


    PS......your junk is AMAZING & I see so much potential in it all:-)

  23. Crusty, rusty, divine. Love your junk yard!

  24. If you lived close by I'd see if we could strike a few deals, if you aren't holding onto all of those treasures too tightly, that is.

  25. I see a lot of fabulous stuff in your junk! Loved the tour!

  26. I would love to shop your junk yard for sure! Thanks for joining Diann and I at TTF.
