I have been gathering up decorative and fun items for my potting shed.
I found a reprint of a vintage Burpee's poster on eBay. On Saturday I
was in Hobby Lobby to pick up "just" glass beads for a vase when I
stumbled upon two cute wooden signs. There is one for Thyme and
another for Rosemary.
I have to limit my visits to Hobby Lobby because they can so
easily reel me in and I usually end of buying more than I planned ;-)
Some vintage gardening books will live on one of the shelves of
the armoire I am refinishing. I have to repaint it and then beat it up
with some chains to distress it quite a bit. It's going to be a wonderful
way to let out my anger about whatever is bugging me at the time.
I love this zinc mounting board with the distressed black frame. I
purchased this at that cute little shop called Smitten up in Fredericksburg
a couple of years ago. I wasn't sure how I was going to use it when
I first bought it, so that is why I have not shown it to you until now.
Now I know it will be a fun way to post gardening articles and pictures.
I wish the shop had a website … no, come to think of it, it's probably
better for me if they don't. I am totally smitten with Smitten and I
will spend less if I have to drive three hours to get there. Do you
see how I am saving us all money all of the time???
I bought these cute little floral magnets there too.
That's it for today. I am preparing for a big post about last night's
Downton Abbey. So much to say about the sparing sisters on that
I loved the scene from last night's episode where the new puppy
was in his wicker dog bed chewing on the sides. Bentley had
a wicker dog bed when he was a pup and he did the same thing!
Big Texas Hugs,
Susan and Bentley
