"In search of my Mother's garden, I found my own."
I wish I could say I came up with that saying, however,
I found it on the web, and it spoke volumes to me!

This was an extremely fun project.
Mike went to the local hardware store and bought the wood for me..fastened it, and the rest...
well you can see what I came up with.
|Right now I am claiming this to be the most enjoyable project, I have ever done.|
And to think, it all started with a copy cat magazine challenge.
|I am extremely visual, so when I see something, I can copy it pretty well.|
I never ever do it exactly though. I guess that is not really copying then is it?
These are two wood planks braced together, you have NO idea how heavy it is.
But being the stubborn person I am, I stained it, and then carried it to my back porch myself.
MIKE was not happy I did that. In fact, he said, I never met your Grandmother, but I am betting you are as stubborn as she is. Was that a compliment? Probably not, but I loved my Gram:)
|Of course, with my own fun twist.|
If you missed my Mom's garden's go HERE!
|The magazine used coffee cans. I used veggie cans. The larger tin, was pink, I spray painted it,and used my stencil to perk it up. |
|And here is my magazine copy cat.|
See you here July 1st for the challenge.
In the meantime, let's get the newbie party started.
