Enchantment in a Recycled Garden

My neighbor Inga, has the most charming dollhouse sized cottage.
She lives there with her Corgi, her cat and some chickens on a tiny 
postage sized lot that is filled with enchantment.  Notice the potting
shed attached to the cottage on the right.  Recycled windows and 
siding were used to create this functional and adorable shed.

Every square inch is utilized.  Most of what she has used to create
this magical spot is purchased from thrift shops and salvage yards.
She is a true artist.

Inside this wood structure is a rain barrel.  The rain rolls off her carport
and into the hidden barrel.  At the bottom of this structure is a 
spigot where she can attach a hose or fill a watering can.

Everywhere you turn there is magic.

Look at this collection of vintage yard tools!

I will be back to take more pictures.  I am amazed by Inga's 
creativity and passion for creating a haven with recycled finds.

I would have taken more pics, but Bentley was with me and he
was completely distracted by Inga's chickens.
