Hi! This forum has inspired me.

I recently found this forum when searching for ideas on how to make a flower "bed" out of an old bed. Wow! Now I see all sorts of things I can do. It immediately inspired me to start searching local for neat things to use in the garden. Already I have scored a claw foot tub and a wooden screen door, both FREE off of craigslist. My DH and I are in the process of downsizing and are about to build in Asheville, NC. I have oodles of glassware, silver and china from my mother's and grandmother's estates that we had planned to sell at an estate sell. Knowing that I will not get anything for these things, I am thrilled to have found a new use for them.

You guys have done a great job in the FAQ section. I was going to ask a bunch of questions but it seems you've already answered everything.

It may be awhile before I have anything to share, but I'm sure I'll be checking in quite often.

Welcome ncamy!! It sounds like you are sitting on a goldmine of glasware, and you scored some very impresive freebies from Craigslist. A claw foot tub has been on my wishlist for ages. I saw ONE for sale and the guy wanted $200. I think everyone here watches Antiques Roadshow and thinks their junk is worth a fortune. lol

I look forward to seeing your creations in the future. Happy junking!!

I know, isn't this a great forum? And everyone here is really NICE!! (There are a couple forums where people get snarky, and I think, "Okaaay, I'm going back to Garden Junk where all the friendly people hang." LOL)

There's so many creative minds here. Between the posts and their links to their blogs, I could spend all day just checking everything out. Wish I had the time! Lots of talent and inspiration.

Welcome to an awesome forum, ncamy! It looks like you are off to a great start in garden junkin'. I look forward to seeing your creations.

I go there periodically and drool. lol Don't forget to check out the "Conversations" side of this forum too. That's where we go to chit chat about things unrelated to Garden Junk.

Welcome aboard! We love junkers & sounds like you have some great junk to work with!! Might go to library & check an antique book before you turn it into a totem. Some early glass is worth a lot. You was take pics & post them on the "Antiques forum" & they will tell you also. Will be fun to reshape the yards of your new home!! Pics of before & after would be great! Jan
