Past Projects and Ideas to Share

Garden Tools ~

When we moved onto our property in l985, the acreage included an old homestead that was abandoned and all the out buildings and barns were falling down. We had the volunteer fire department come and burn the buildings for practice. Every year we take big loads to the dump in effort to clean up the "junk" that was left behind. I rescued this old hoe with its broken handle from the truck, ready to be hauled away!
I painted a variation of a Terrye French design and added some bumble bee fabric and a salt dough bumble bee.
I just knew it had a purpose!!
Since I was on a roll with the garden tools, I painted this old shovel head too!
This is another variation of a Terrye French design.
I wrapped a pineapple garland to the handle and tied some homespun for the hanger.

We have had cold, rainy weather for the past few days. Today was beautiful, but more rain and snow expected tomorrow night and Sunday.

Trying to get ready for my middle son's high school graduation and haul our cattle to summer pasture this weekend! Could be tricky!

Hope everyone has a great weekend!
