    I found this old bottle carrier back in May and finally put it to use earlier this month. The jars I had sitting around waiting for their shot at the big time and the zinnia are dwarf should only get about 6 inches tall.

    I am slowly getting other of my junque items ready for display but they will have to wait until the temperatures consistently stay below 90 to make appearance in the garden.

    Very, very cute Toni:) Zinnias always make me think of Glendann. Remember her?

    I like your idea Toni. The carrier is ideal if you want to move the Zinnias around the garden and looks attractive into the bargain. Those junque trips certainly pay off don't they?

    What a neat idea! I do admire your talent for taking the junque that your find and putting it to such great things.
