I haven't done a post in about a week...it was just one of the those weeks,
& there is so much to be done outdoors. So today's post will be a mixed bag.
We can't have everything, I know. But I had some "spending money"
in my pocket yesterday and couldn't find anything great to spend it on. Figures!
I'm going to paint the little wooden organizer and use it in my craft room,
or maybe in the camper to hold silverware, napkins and stuff.
I couldn't resist these OLD poker chips. Made in Milwaukee!
LOVE the old boxes though they're not in good shape.
Still fun for a dollar, and can use some for crafting. Five card stud anyone?
The same thrift had all this blue vintage rickrack in a bag. Looks like some
sewer really loved blue! Guess I'm stocked with blue for...forever.
I love the packaging, with the Cameo being my favorite.
Six vintage style green ball jars...how I wish they were vintage! Had to grab
them when I saw them at WalMart. Hoping they get blue in stock soon.
That was it for my shopping. The good thing, I still have my fun $ to spend!
Sharing our garden next. Mr. Retro is very clever. He purchased used plastic
drums, cleaned them, cut them in half, set them on cinder blocks....voila,
raised gardens! No squatting to the ground for that unending weeding.
We planted 4 and thought they were great, so Mr. retro went back and bought a
few more. They are empty now, but we have some veggies started from seed
that will be planted soon.
We planted some tomatoes, yellow squash, zucchini, and peppers in the ground.
He says next year, all raised gardens. Fine with me! It's not like I enjoy
weeding on the ground. :)
Crossing fingers for a good garden season and that the container plants do well.
These cucumber plants that can grow down rather than climb up.
Doyle enjoying his nice shaded pen. A comfy igloo house, wooden bottom,
shaded roof, big bucket of water....and all he wants is to be let out so he can run.
He ran into a five foot black snake the other day and wasn't happy about it.
Me neither! Luckily they're not dangerous, just icky.
Lastly, Mr. Retro brought me an empty spoolie home from work.
What do you think? :)
He painted it with leftover paint, it's drying on a bucket here.
Next step, he says I have to decorate it. I'm looking forward to it.
(my knockout roses, looking fabulous)
Enjoy your Sunday!
