Today I bring you a touch of beauty via recycling. Flowers and herbs planted in some fantastic, vintage pieces that I purchased. They’ve been scraped, washed, and poly’d or painted!
They’ve all lived a good life, and I’ve re-purposed them so they may enjoy a NEW life! Join me – 2 doors down from Ely’s Annual Blueberry Festival in Whiteside Park! Will you give one of these lovelies a new home?
Well loved strainer now a fantastic planter!

Have a GREAT weekend!
My father-in-law has said that I make things more complicated than they need to be.
Sometimes I guess I do.
Like when it comes to our yard…
It takes me days to “decorate” our yard and my gardens every year. It’s ever evolving in a manner of speaking…new junk = new garden decor. Remember the old saying: ‘Your garbage may be someone else’s treasure’?
Yes…my yard is living proof. I have dilapidated bird houses, old pans, old faucets, a few faded decor items…you name it. But they look lovely now! I love repurposing things, giving them a new home, and showing them a little love…even though they’re old, faded and worn out (hmmmm…maybe I’m describing myself?). Read more
Another find from Pinterest, these words say it all.
ps… I promise I’ll try to be back to my wordy self tomorrow. It’s been a crazy weekend of moving things into the basement (the storerooms are now done) and cleaning, moving, and organizing in my NEW workshop (aka old storage room).
Needless to say I’ve been having fun

OK…full disclosure: One of the keys in selling Tim on the idea was to describe it as our “Finishing Shop” where we’ll do all the painting/staining of the pieces he builds.
Shhhhhh…don’t tell him I’m still going to call it “my shop”!
I LOVE summertime – and all the gorgeous flowers that grow!
These are some of the latest beauties from my garden… Read more
