I saw an old license plate in my storage building, and in the 98 degree in the shade weather, I immediately thought of Christmas. It was a 1966 Michigan License plate that stated “water winter wonderland”.   I decided to use a wooden tool tote to make a Christmas themed box. I bought this Waverly chalk…

It has been near 100 for over 3 weeks at our house in North Georgia. Many of my container gardens have succumbed to the heat. I could have watered twice daily and they still would not have made it. My herb garden and perennials seem to have flourished in the heat, and are blooming this…

I love garden gnomes and have managed to accumulate a few.  I think a couple of them may be part of the 7 Dwarves crew but I like them none the less, and consider them my gnomes. This little concrete “gnome” was grabbed up at a local flea market for $5.00.  I almost felt guilty…

It was a rainy day, and I wanted to find a few things to take to a flea market show in September. I like to take a few inexpensive things, and something with color to add to my vintage and junk finds. Rhynes in Ringgold, Georgia, is a wholesale only business. It is housed in…

Garden Gates

Some gates are made to keep you out, and others to keep you in. Then there are those that were made to decorate with! My junking friend Sandra has several of the old metal gates.  These two separate her little patio from the side yard and shed.  This old watering trough makes a great focal…

I bought this straw purse at a local thrift store a few months ago and put it back in my storage closet. I was in a cleaning mood today, and found it along with a pair of pink polka dot gardening gloves. They were perfect together. A close up shows embroidered flowers and a watering…
