Now this is what I was talking about.....

......those things that make me happy!


Here is my newly upcycled potting shelf for my potting shed, OOPS,


potting porch. It is an old entertainment center that I saw the potential for some greater use one day. Danny however did not see any potential in the piece and thought I had lost my cotton-picking mind over this one! LOL


It came with the mobile home, The Fairy's Rest.


I found a great used TV and TV stand on Craigslist and did not need this one so I kept it.


I am glad I did!




Robin bought me these darling bird drawer pulls at Hobby Lobby in Atlanta and brought them to me for Mothers Day! Cool kid, huh?


I saw them when we were there visiting Lillie but they were very pricey so I left them, reluctantly. But in a couple weeks they showed up at my doorstep!








The water spigot hooks HAD to come home with me.








I LOVE IT!











This will be put to good use along with my Pouting Pany's Potting Bench/Table from last year.



I will paint it green to match the shelf and call it all a potting porch!













Storage on the back side for all my garden tools. Well the small ones anyway, need to figure out what to do with the big shovels and such....hmmm??
















I love this picture!

















{smile}


















I had to play around with Picasa and I like this one too!






So this is what I was talking about in my last post when i mentioned doing what I like to do....did I say when I like to do it too?



I have officially quit my fulltime job as of last Friday, however, I must have had a senior moment when they asked if I could fill in one day a week til they could get someone hired and trained for my position, and I said "Yes, I will be more than happy to work every Wednesday for four weeks!" What was I smoking that day?



It's Ok though!



I can do anything for eight hours a week, right?



I have had such a great time in the past 4 days and have accomplished so much that I do not want to mess up my streak by going to work tomorrow!! URGH!!!



I think I can.....I think I can....I think I can......

Your potting porch sounds adorable! I love gardening stuff...but my thumb is only green if I paint it! Would a BIG clay pot hold your other gardening tools?

You are SO creative! Everything you put your hand turns out looking like a work of art. :D

Enjoy your time at home!

Wonderful potting unit for the porch! You did a fantastic job with it and everything ties together beautifully.
