Succulent Wheelbarrow Planter

So, what do you do when you have an old stump to camouflage, a wheelbarrow with holes and dribs and drabs of different outdoor succulents? Why, make a planter of course! This old wheelbarrow had seen better days and had quite a few rusted out holes in the bottom of it. Placing a few pieces

Bed Springs Trellis

Bed Springs Trellis

  Trash pick’in happens unexpectedly! Sometimes I find the best stuff just cruising along minding my own business. Like this wonderful crib-size bed springs piece that was sitting out there leaning against a trashcan on my shortcut to the hardware store. Couldn’t just leave it there, now could I? So I hauled it home and

Chalk Paint Magic

True confession time!! I frequent local garage and estate sales and buy “projects” that I never seem to get around to. Do you, too? At the time that I buy them, these odds and ends seem like diamonds in the rough. Later, I realize that there isn’t any perfect spot in the house or I

Field Trip ~ Lewes Beach Get-A-Way

Lewes Beach, DE

Sometimes you just need to unplug and have a little get-a-way. Recently, my hubby and I returned to my old stomping grounds in Lewes, Delaware. Still quaint in many ways, even though it is a beach resort, Lewes has plenty of charms. Historic homes, weathered cottages and museums create an old-timey ambiance. Eclectic boutique shops

Lamps with a Gardener’s Touch

Flower Pot Lamp Shade

I’ve had a couple yard sale lamps on the potting bench in our garden room for sometime now. My intent was to find some wonderful shades to replace the stained and torn existing ones. But, do you know how much lamp shades cost? Especially the cute gardening themed ones, that I thought I wanted, were
