My thoughts are already turning towards spring and we're only one month into winter! I'm thinking of flowers and honey bees!

You might be wondering what this odd contraption is. Believe it or not, I recall my Dad using this smoker when I was a kid when he was moving the honey bee hives around. Recently he passed it to me for some altering vs. throwing it out.

I wanted to soften the rusty metal by adding flowers, a modge podged image, and a really cool metal bee & clock.

I guess it helps to create springlike creations in winter!!! Love how you've sorted of been sympathetic to the 'feel' of the smoker! Nice job:):)
