Merry Christmas everyone! This is one of my favorite Christmas finds. I found it a few years ago and couldn't believe no one had purchased it before me.
It is a wonderful apron with Santa..........
Georgia style! Isn't it a kick??
And on another note.....
My Potting Shed is ready for company.
Every four months I host our "Girl's Cards" group. In January we will pull out the drop leaf table on the right and pull up the chairs and play cards!! FINALLY!!
This is just a cute little bit of folk art I received while in Port Townsend.
Still not ready for the big day. If you can believe it we just got our tree today. You would think that now that I am retired I could find the time to be ready for Christmas way ahead of time instead of last minute again!!!!
Please be safe out there in the hustle bustle and have a wonderful Christmas Season,
Although not completely done, the shed is ready for its photos. But pleased be warned: If you do not like color or if you don't like being surrounded by treasures you have collected for years-------this post is not for you.
For those not from the Northwest, the picture of the mountain is Mt. St. Helen's before she blew up.
The top of the cabinet.
The loft...AKA Level B - for baskets and birdhouses.
The corner by the window.
So this is my home away from home, my playhouse, my little slice of heaven. Hope you enjoyed the tour.
I am of the old school, where all the wonderful Christmas things came out the day after Thanksgiving.
It was so exciting to go shopping that day and see all the new things and decorations and displays.
Now it starts in October. It is difficult for me to even think about Christmas yet. However....
I will be bringing in Christmas things soon so I must make room. All the pink tags are 25% off. Hope you can make it in to Uncovered Ruby to shop. Uncovered Ruby 510 E. Main St. Battle Ground, WA 98604 T - Sat 10:30 to 4:00
Here it is! The lattice at the bottom was added as much for decor as to keep all the little creatures out.
And the walls and ceiling are finished in bead board. I came home from a little vacation and walked in and found my dream come true!
This is the big window that faces west and up to the left is a sort of skylight for winter light. You see, I am supposed to share part of the shed with Mr. Attic so he can grow things from seed and overwinter plants.........
This view looks out to the front and you can tell we need to do quite a bit of landscaping still.
I've decided to paint it all white. I have so many colorful things to put out here and hang on the walls that it is difficult to think of a colored wall or ceiling.
Except over here where the wood is exposed, I think I will go with a green stain on the wood. I also plan to skirt the bench so I can hide things (lots of things).
The floor is a vinyl remnant. There wasn't much to choose from and I just couldn't go with a beige/white laundry room looking floor.
To say the least I am thrilled with the outcome. Now I have to wipe down the walls and paint and stain and then I can really start to have some fun...............Putting it all back together. I will post some updates as time goes on.
