Got Fruit?

I think I figured out what the big bowl is....a decorative fruit bowl. Where did I get this idea? Well, the dirt, junk treasure  pile offered up some more stuff...
Take a look...
The junk and dirt pile out back
Just so you don't think we are too slobby (is that a word?...is now!), there is a flower garden and a fence that you see....this pile is behind the fence. I guess that is why someone piled all this stuff back there....I pile my junk in the garage like normal people!


BIG Fruit
There is a banana, apple, lemon, pear, and a peach....these are huge...about 2-3 times normal size.  So it is up to ya'll again...do I use the fruit with the bowl, paint it like fruit, paint it solid, or hide it out of sight?  Sorry to be taxing your creative brains so much, but I love all your ideas. I look forward to hearing from you....
Come on tell it like it is!

Lori did you see the decoupaged fruit (not sure of where I saw it) that was french labels from the Graphics Fairy? I will look for the post and give you a link - it was really fabulous and your giant fruit would come right into this century.....
Hugs,
Peggy

Don't paint!! Delicious patina there, be a shame to cover it up!

I was sure it was a bird bath! Not crazy about the fruit, painted solid or decoupaged would be nice. I would not use them together with the bowl, maybe I would, no, I wouldn't. Go ahead and fix them up though. *grin*

Oddly enough, there is a little junk pile on the outer portion of my property hidden in the woods (thankfully) and I too was rummaging in it today. I found a few junky treasures to repurpose into something super! :-)

I would definitely consider unifying your fruit with spray paint perhaps to make it look like stone or concrete.

Thanks for the comment on my blog about the owl I carved. I am now following you back. Def paint the fruit!

How would it look if you painted it white and distressed it? Fun find! Hope you are having a great week!...hugs...Debbie
