Photos of Junk Jamboree Gift makings!

desertrat1(Zone8_CA)September 2, 2009

Ok, so we had discussed that we take pictures of WHAT we did with our SJJ gifts....Well, Kirk was my "gifter". I received a couple nice enamelware pans from him. It got me going on doing succulant dish gardens but did not want to put holes in them. When I bought an old colander from the thrift store and another from my garden, planted them up...well, Kirk encouraged me to go ahead and make the drain holes. I DID! (Ok, note--anyone doing this with a nail and hammer beware that enamel chips flake and splinter like...wear gloves when doing this). So, I FINALLY got photos taken and posted on my website...The red and green rimmed ones were from Kirk. Thank you Kirk!


Love, Jules

My favorite is the one with the bunny crawling out on the rim, but they are all great. The succulents available here are all so pricey, so I have not even looked for a pan.

Y'all are just so wonderful! Yep, my fav's are the bunny one and the one with the frog that has dots.....the big one I think I'm going to give to a friend that gave me the stand that it sits on (was a chimineas stand). She was going to throw it out since she was moving and the chimineas broke. I snatched that baby up and it's been wanting to be repurposed for about 2 years now! :-) Yep, teh plants are expensive and the rocks/sand are rocks and seashells different sizes and colors. I think they look COOL!
Love, Jules

Love these, desertrat! (my old posting must be out in cyberspace...this is the 2nd one I thought I posted the other day)! Anyway, TFS the slide show! Love the enamel pans (with holes), & the succulents! Still drooling over the yellow enamel colander, tho'! Jeanne S. You should share this on conversation side, too!
