My Christmas Potting Shed

It's so mild outside and I have spring fever and it's not even 
Christmas day yet!  This unseasonably warm weather has brought 
with it thoughts of my potting shed.  

I was considering building a new one, but then I thought to myself
why?  Why not take the existing one and tweak it to my liking?
So that's what I plan to do.  In the meantime, I decided to spruce it
all up for Christmas.  Wait a minute ~ spruce it up ~there I go
with the puns again.  Sorry!  They just pop out all the time ;-)

So I hung a beautiful wreath that was a gift from the attorney who
represents David's company.  Thank you Tom ~ we love it!

I tied tartan bows on rusty old yard tools and on a birdhouse too.

The two metal chairs were alley finds back in Idaho.  They are rusty and
chippy and I love them.

I gave Mom's old straw gardening bonnet some tartan cheer too.
There you have it.  If the weather is still mild after the holidays, I 
will begin the potting shed renovations.  It's just so much fun to tweak!

It's Bentley's 10th birthday today.  He is being spoiled even
more than usual.  He's not complaining ;-)

Big Texas Hugs,
Susan and Bentley


  1. Happy Birthday to Bentley and you did a fun twink on that shed!

  2. This is just too adorable for words! Perfect spot to sit have a cup of tea and read all the seed catalogs.;-)

  3. Oh, the fun of having a real potting shed! I think yours is festive with the red doors and the beautiful wreath. Well done, Susan!

  4. What a wonderful potting shed!

    Mine needs a lot of work, but I am looking forward to it.

    Planting season is right around the corner.

    Merry Christmas!


  5. Happy Birthday, Bentley!! Your potting shed looks adorable. And I said the very same thing last night - it's not even Christmas yet and I'm already looking forward to spring!! It's this bizarre weather. I've been fixing up my potting shed aka Garden Cottage since I bought my house, a little at a time, and I've been posting the progress as I go along. I'm ready to tackle the next little upgrade....stay tuned for a post on that soon!!

  6. Yes. It's Christmas day and I'm reading seed catalogues.


Oliver and I LOVE and read every comment.
