|Does anyone need a rusty squirrel cage fan?|
Fortunately the second sign of spring which I mentioned in my last post (and will continue to mention) is flowers and gardening. Unlike cleaning the house, I love working in the garden. Since I got my zippy Kodak camera (so easy to use) for my last birthday, I have been in love with taking photos of my flowers. Like Laura and many of you who commented on her post, I am a bit of a hermit, so pardon the need to share via the internet (and not with real people). I am also having fun combining my love of vintage with flowers. If you like the photos, I hope you'll try your own funky yard art and share your photos right back.
This was an ice cream parlor chair I bought cheap because it had no seat. I found a microwave plate that fit perfectly (95 cents at Goodwill) and voila it's the centerpiece of my porch steps. Vintage tea pots and casserole dishes with no lids also can be found cheap at every thrift shop. They make great planters. I potted impatiens in these, which need low light, and put them in one of my booths. Both sold almost immediately.
The third sign of spring is fresh greens. My whole family is waiting for the first salad of the season. The weather has been perfect for lettuce, peas and spinach and they've grown quickly. Soon I will thin the rows and then yum!
What chores do you love to tackle in the spring? Which do you avoid? I'd love to hear your comments.
