My Favorite Project this year

This is my Potting Shed, aka Big Girls Playhouse, aka
Potting Cottage.

It's been up for a couple of years, but unfinished on the inside.

So in winter it is too cold and in summer ---too hot!

So it is getting "finished"!

We took almost everything out. UGH!!! (Who knew I
has so much stuff in there?) (What about all the stuff
in the garage that I got because "it will be so cute in the
potting shed" ?)
What am I going to do with all the stuff??? Hmmm.

First we get insulation to keep the temp under control.
And then we add plywood to act as a backing for the ..........
well, in about a week it will be complete and I will show
you pictures then.
This shed has been a dream of mine for years. After realizing
that he can't "do it himself" my super husband got
someone to do it. It will be done soon and I will be able to
paint it and hang things and arrange things and be
out there anytime I want/need to!!
Until then, may all your dreams come true,

Beautiful day of Junking

Last weekend I went junking out in the country.

This is the kind of view I saw.

This garage sale had parking "down the road".

This was a barn sale at the tree farm.

This was just some amazing old green contraptions I passed.

This deer was in my yard when I got home.

So was this little guy.

And off they went...that crazy lady was unloading her car!

And my Munchy was waiting inside.

Here is some of what I found....a few little treasures.

Cool graphics on this old crepe paper.

A couple of old spelling books. An ironstone platter, and a
neat old handled box with a monogram.

A sweet little bowl with flowers. (can't resist them)

A little birdie whistle, a relaxing colt and some vintage
fru fru.
There was more but this gives you an idea. It was just a
gorgeous day in the country. I went down roads I'd never
been on and saw beautiful scenery. A girl can't ask for
much more.
What was your weekend like??
