Hello there and a happy Saturday to you all!
Not such a nice one here in the Carolinas today.
Although, temps are good, it is very gloomy and misty here today.
Thought I would share this bench my husband made for me around 4 years ago.
There is a story to it, as most things we have, there is a story.
You see when we first moved to the Carolinas, we fell in love with everything rustic and natural. We would spend hours driving around and looking at other homes and landscapes.
One particular, very upscale I might add neighborhood ( we could not even afford the driveway kinda homes) we loved, had these gorgeous rustic benches, randomly throughout these rolling hills.
I said to my ever so sweet, never did wood working a day in his life husband. "you can so do that",
he of course, said NO way, I never did anything like that in my life.
You see I have all the confidence in the World in him. I reassured him, he could, and would he at least try?
So off to Lowes we went one fine day, and within a weekend, I had my very own rustic bench. Even better I might add!
He put a lot of time and good quality into this bench. It has been sitting happily near our outdoor fireplace since.
We love it.
Now the house number was just an add on, because the company made a mistake on centering, so they sent us a new one. Instead of wasting it, I thought it would look good on the bench.
Believe it or not, the mailman love it too.
This guy hung around me while I was taking pics. Is it me, but does this squirrel have no eye?
Have a great rest of the weekend gals.
I will see you for the Newbie party tomorrow night.
