Love this book. I'm the first to admit that the book layout is somewhat haphazard, the writing casual and idiosyncratic, the organization a bit lacking But that's okay, because the author is passionate about the subject. The photos are just so-so, but loaded with inspiration, as is the text.

The whole thing is so cool for fans of vintage garden tools, ornaments, structures, bric a brac. It's a very laid-back trek with the author as she discovers cool garden stuff on her forays through antique shops, thrift shops, attics, rummage sales and flea markets and arranges her treasures with enthusiasm and creativity.

I purchased this book for myself several years ago. I love it. The pictures gave me lots of ideas to use in my gardens.

"Never stop to think, do I have a place for this.- Mary Randolph Carter

This book is dangerously fun with photographs, essays and resources all about junk for the garden. From the author of the "Junk" series, including American Junk, Kitchen Junk and Big City of Junk, she shows fun items from the garden that can be found in antique stores, flea markets and garage sales. There are a few nifty projects outlined that are fun such as building an outdoor room but really the best part is the photos of her own garden. She is truly a woman who loves junk and gardening.

Sadly the book is out of print but you can order copies directly from the author's website www.carterjunk.com and she sends a signed copy and a bumper sticker that reads, "I Brake For Junk!".
