The building crew consisted of my husband, Rob, my son, Mason, my dog, Toby, and my brother (adopted), Daniel. They worked so hard to make a space for my garden things and other stuff. (I am suspicious that the motivation came from my husband seeking for his shed to finally be his shed and rid of all my things!) You will notice a little 'Pixie' on the scene...there is sure to be one somewhere! She enjoys making mud pies and play dough cookies in the shed, while I tinker!
Some of my favorite things...
The large basket on the wall that holds my smaller baskets and jars for holding vegetables
The children's art work (we live at the lake, so the fish are at home)
The chandelier given to me by my sister (I hung it from a piece of rope and an old pully)
My grandfather's old canteen that he carried as a soldier
Daniel's oar (he has traveled the world as a missionary and always gives his things away before he goes)
The wild flowers that the children and I picked on the side of the road
The 1966 copy of Reader's Digest Complete Book of the Garden (this was my mother's)
The little white table and bench from our neighbor whose children and grand-children are grown
The old minnow bucket (my grand-daddy taught me how to fish)
The little white truck with the bird's nest (it was black, so I spray painted and topped it with a nest)
The old white gate from another neighbor
The $3 white stool found by a friend
The herb boxes that hold my tools and gloves
These things are my 'favorites' because they remind me of the people in my life...some have passed and some I don't get to see very often. It is certain, though, that when I walk into this little shed everyday, I remember the people and the hands that held these things!
I have added many new things to the shed! Click here to see!
