Your photo is so cool, I would like to try that. I know what you mean about moving furry things. Last year it was groundhogs that had burrowed under the corner of your shed and if we didn't do anything about it, are shed would have sunk down in. We have a heart trap caught 8 babies and relocated them. They were so cute, but it was them or the shed. Oh well. I am looking forward to getting out into my shed. Happy Spring.

I finished reading this post probably 5 minutes ago, but I keep staring at that stinkin' cute wheelbarrow! I've got one that my husband made for me for Christmas a few years ago, and it's been painted so many colors. Now it's red, and I was just looking at it yesterday, thinking it needed a new paint job. And now I'm thinking it needs some tulips too!

I had to google groundhog, I remember that I did that before, but what use is that if you don't remember the meaning of the word? Ha, I suppose I 'm getting older. Love that drawing like photo.
You asked me about the cup and saucer holder. It is 'old', my friend had one at their home as long as I can remember, which is about 45 years. I bought the one I have myself about 25 years ago at a flea market. I knew what it was, they are not common here, but I great item to display your cup and saucers. Funny how items of my youth 'suddenly' are vintage not to mention the word old.

I meant: but a great item to display..


Good luck with your latest critter!

I see hydrangeas - big beautiful hydrangeas against that barn. The other flowers aren't as clear, but I think I see dianthus and lambsear, oh, and some shasta daisies.

As a fellow country dweller, I know what you mean. I spend a good deal of my time picking up sticks, raking over ruts made by pickups or raking over hills made by moles. And trying to convince grass not to grow in the gravel drive. And running into opossums or raccoons in the dark on the porch.

All of it makes moving to the city sound really nice, until we have a beautiful day by the bonfire, or go for a walk in our very own woods. Kind of makes it worth it.


For me, just like last spring, it seems to be the attack of the pine cones ( and pine needles, and pine branches...)They all seem to have come down at the same time! Not quite warm enough here to remove ground cover (my Mum has this thing about waiting until May to do such things but that is wayyyy to far off). So I'll just enjoy pictures of Spring at your place instead. Smile. Jewels

Into Vintage

A wheelbarrow - need to get one of those. Today I am using my car to move bags of leaves from my porch to the composting center a few blocks away. We too have 'something' under the porch -- so far it remains anonymous but my vote is for skunk. Just a feeling...


I think a snowball bush.... and that vine with orange trumpety flowers that you can stick on your fingers and pretend to be a witch...and some honeysuckle and hollyhocks that you can make into princesses with a bud and a bloom. Those are some of the plants I remember that grew around my grandmother's shed.

I love what you did with that photo.
