GARDEN JUNK

I found this old typewriter in a thrift store and bought it with plans to harvest the number and letter keys for different projects......but then......
I was outside doing some planting and just happened to have a piece of  left over moss that fit it perfectly so I couldn't resist adding some soil and a little plant.
I love using junk pieces in the garden......
Happy day!

Totally fabulous! I often do the same thing - buying something to reuse another way but find I like it so much using as is or with something else. Lovely surprise, isn't it?
