Deep Fried Decor

Have you ever heard the phrase "Everything's better deep fried"? Well I thought I'd put it to the test in my entryway by using an old industrial-sized deep fryer basket found at a local restaurant supply house. I put it to work holding vases of flowers to greet company. Let me know if you think the "everything's better..." statement holds true.

Recipe for Candy's Ultimate Deep-Fried Decor


1) 2 bunches of pretty flowers

2) 1 rusty old deep fryer basket

3) 9 cups of, that is

Sizzle, sizzle...

At the restaurant supply house checkout, I paid my bill and left a tip...


As always, take care and keep on junking!

  3. i love this so much i'm now on a hunt to find me one!

  4. I love that Candy! It's so industrial looking, but still "soft." That's also one of those items you could use indoors or out...lots of variations!

    BTW, I do have a few glass pieces saved up to use for birdseed. One is a tulip-looking piece of glass. It's so cute. I just have to build the rest of the totem first. Hopefully I'll get to it tonight.

  5. Looks AWESOME! Had to your tip. Buy Junk! I love my 'junk' finds!!! Thanks for the constant inspiration.

  6. Gorgeous, Candy! Love the collection of milk glass all in one place! Great to greet you guests! When may I visit? :)

  7. I like the organized look of a collection. I think it is the fresh way to do junk and country!

  8. O.K. I think from now on when I go junkin, I'm taking you with me for ideas. Who would of thought of the deep fryer and it looks so classy/chabby.

  9. I like it! The grouping look great :)

  10. Very clever! Love the milk glass!

  11. Candy! Love this idea! It would be so easy to change out the flowers to suit the season!
