Pinterest Procrastinations: Old Bed Spring

I had to have one. An old bed spring.

I had seen them at the craft fairs I attended this past fall. So I searched Pinterest for ways to use mine. I discovered that there are many ways to use it. And then I saw a beautifully decorated Ball jar and remembered that I had just had some old family photos developed at Archivers. I was going to use them for mixed media projects but for now they can sit in the jar. The jar is like a picture frame. 

I like to use pasta sauce jars because I like the shape and size and they don't have writing on the front. I placed the jar on top of the spring which held it perfectly. I clipped the beautiful flower I made at Sweethearts on the Homefront onto the spring. I enjoy looking at this project everyday while I work at my creative space.
