This old garden scythe is going out as a trellis for a vine in the Spring.
Another thing I'm planning to do is take 3 old/vintage long-handled garden shovels, stick the metal in the ground a bit and tie the tops of the handles together tee-pee style. Use as a pea or vine tee-pee/trellis.
I should gather them up and take a group shot of my watering cans. I saw one pic in COUNTRY GARDENS magazine where they had them hanging on the outside of a potting shed. Cute idea but no shed yet. I would love to have one and a GH while I am dreaming :)
I am about 60 miles north of Clarksville. Nice town, I am out in rural Amish country here. We love to run down to shop and eat at Golden Corral or etc.
I hope you will be able to be with us again this year, Teresa. I look forward to seeing you there also Carole. You gals decorate like I do. Maybe one of these days we can all get together and talk about our mutual interests. Try really hard to make it to roundup this year. We always have a ball.
Here's the old iron pulley and light medallion (luv the old medallions) ... I stuck the old mail slot in the picture but you can't read that it says Letters due to the brightness of the sun. I have more sedums and semps on order and am going to use all these pieces with those.
I'll be quiet now. :-D
Oh the sun is out so brightly and the temperature is 55! Enjoy it while we can!!
It is good to hear from you, I hope you and all your family are well.
I do love my old glassware too. I am not downsizing but when I go to flea markets and antique shops I think really hard ...Do I really need this! LOL I think it is a blast just browsing.
We have the hardest time controlling ourselves when we are out junking. Gone are the days when I just buy what I like. Now I have to think it over carefully and have a real place to put it. I am totally out of room for anything unless I get rid of something else. I must find a place to sell many, many things so my kids won't have to clean out all of my unnecessary treasures when I go to the happy hunting grounds. Wait...I am a Baptist so I guess I won't go there but will go to heaven instead... or a smaller place even before that. Albert says he isn't going ANYWHERE. LOL
It is good to hear from you. I have been away from Daves for several months. Surgery, and other family drama playing out. Please pray for my sister Kay. I am taking her to Vanderbilt for chemo treatments. I will check out your link :)
Teresa, I am so sorry about your sister. Both of my sisters have been cancer victims. You may recall my telling everyone to pray for my younger sister. She is stage 4 and so far she is still alive after a bit over three years. She lives in Houston and goes to M.D Anderson. Please pray for her. Her name is Gail. I will pray for Kay. You might want to put her in the prayer forum here at DG and also over at "The Gathering Place" where I take care of the site for the Lord. Vandy is a good hospital. I have all my doctors there except my GP. I have had him for many years and he understands that I want everyone else at Vandy. I had to explain it to him early on however. Tee hee! Don't think he has ever had anyone who didn't want to be treated at the hospital he uses.
OMG ... chartreuse/lime is my favorite plant color ... especially with purple. So 'Alexa Katheryn' immediately caught me eye. LOL ... I didn't get past the first one. Love the one in your picture there too.
Well, I went shopping in Hazel this week. I found 2 new McCoy planters that had my name on them. Just had to bring them home because the store owner was ready to bargain!
Also bought my sisiter a occupied Japan girl. She collects those. Isn't it just horrible about the earthquake and other disasters!
I have some antique tools that are in great condition and I plan on sing them. However they are very rusted. Any suggestions on how to make them like new again. I definitely want to use them this summer.;
