With dismay he often asks, "Maureen, WHAT are you going to do with that and do we really need to bring home more stuff?" Well.....yes. Afterall, isn't that why we bought a truck?! And isn't that why we still have "some" space in our little barn?! Not much mind you. For a time I had an obsession with old shutters. I had to have them all, and if they were cheap there was no way we were passing them up.
AND, for over 2 years we have driven by this BIG old rusty mailbox, just lying in a ditch on the side of the road thru all seasons. It would be lost in the summer grasses and weeds but come spring, I could see it.....calling out to me. When I would mention it to the Mr. as we drove down the road, he would hit the gas! FINALLY, one day the car was stopped and someone pulled that big ol' rusty thing out of the ditch and it now resides on the little deck in front of my shop. This thing is huge. It also has a wooden bottom, a true antique. I cannot imagine how old it is but I could receive packages in this thing if it were useable. It the The Mr.looks at it and shakes his head.
Back to the ladders. I had the Mr. make an arbor of sorts for the bottom of the steps to the shop. It sure is the coolest thing ever....you will see and surely agree!
I promise, photos tomorrow of my ugly old junk, much of which is adorned with flowers!
Beauty is in the eye of the beholder afterall.
