My Newest Old Stuff

Sharing my little garden photos from this week; still "installing" old pavers around the beds~~and some of my potted flowers are finally taking off~~

Last year, I bought these two little wooden stools for a couple of dollars~~painted them this spring for the corner of the porch~~

~~and the rusty old pail lets a clay pot fit nicely~~soon the petunias will flower down around the pail~~for July 4th I'll add my little flags here in one of the pots~~

Look what I got today for $5.00 at CC!  A huge antique wood frame~~it has to be fastened back together (hence the plastic ties to each side)~~but, DH says he can fix it~~I see white paint on this real soon~~

Here's that darn shed again!  Okay~~I really wanted this to be my potting shed, but it holds DH's junk (I mean, wonderful tools and power things)~~
However; I had to pretty it up~~still working back here; the new grass is slowly coming in too.  If you look closely to the right window~~all the pink insulation stacked up for the new siding on the house~~I dream of little white curtains at the windows here~~(DH is not charmed by this)~~

My future plans are to add a little deck/stoop in front of the doors and, of course, more bricks to the left side.  More bricks!

Then this next photo~~see that little white shed?  It's the neighbors~~And this is the far side of our north yard where the PRIVACY FENCE is going~~I can hardly wait.  (I like my neighbors, but they don't understand why I stand in my yard taking pictures and setting up little vignettes); I know what they must be thinking: ~~"There's that strange woman again with dishes, flower pots and her camera!"~~~hehe

And, the photo below: another border I worked on Wednesday~~~got these beauties for FREE!  from my son who was going to get rid of them~~and I want to eventually paint the wood fence/gate to match the siding on the house~~

Whew!  What a week~~did a little junking too, but haven't hauled it from the car yet~~I'll save that for next post.  I'm joining these lovely blogs for a great weekend of inspiration~~
