One of my gardening obsessions is the use of "vintage" (aka junk) pieces in the landscape. Most of the time it involves the use of some item in a new way. I am drawn to ideas where the original use is discarded completely for a new use involving the form or material.
I have a board on my Pinterest page called Salvage Garden. I borrowed the term from Monticello Antique Marketplace. They have a huge room dedicated to old garden furnishings. My board is the place I store every image and idea I can find. It is one of my most popular boards with 350+ followers.
I spotted this piece recently in Portland, OR. I'm guessing that it is custom made, with a few metal pieces welded together. The thing is, I don't particularly like the way it looks, but I do like the quirkiness as garden art, while it also functions as a planter.
