anyway we managed to have the event between rain showers, and time to catch up with old friends and meet some of the rest of the neighborhood. A couple of Prince of Peace friends joined us and we give thanks for their continued friendship.... God is Good. All the time.
|The old ironing board was called into|
service for beverages-
Now makes a great spot to gather
some plants near the window.
the crock gathers some silk fall foliage-
until we get the leaves turning......
|The copper kettle was going to be for|
water bottles on ice
but it was so hot--
had to keep that in a cooler
and opted for a recycle container.
The old green screen door was found dumpster diving on trash day
in the neighborhood this spring-
not sure yet what it's new life will be...
|Reconfigured things on the potting bench|
with the old chicken coop on its side
and made a place for name tags
|The old table was found in a back yard and dumped |
when the Youth Group kids did a Clean up day
for an elderly lady in our church....
my girls grabbed it and said-
"mom will take care of this- she loves junk"
|Some old white enamelware|
just hanging out together
|starting to imagine the fall colors|
appearing around the streets
|Grabbed an old burlap feed sack from my dad's stash, |
the red sap bucket
and cut hydrangeas from the back yard garden
|The Wicker flower stand from Aunt Elizabeth Wendt,|
( I remember her gigantic asparagus ferns
in it when I was little)
wooden garden and hay rakes
and fall foliage
|thinking burgundy, orange and gold|
well it might not look like your typical garage redo----
- but think this is on the track for one I can live with
Welcome September Days!
