Reclaimed Counter

I just realized I forgot to show you the reclaimed counter/bar Hubby built me...
The chippy pale green wood is reclaimed from a local Farm porch that was torn down at the edge of our small town. Reclaimed slate top. And the metal tiles I have had tucked away for a few years....
Lots of extra storage which I needed.  The handles are the antique fence topper connectors and have a fleur de lis top. Love how I chose the materials and hubby put it into reality for me... So what have you all been up to? Finally spring here.I have most of the garden planted.A few veggies under lights inside for another week. I need to pick up a few perennials yet trying to add a few new things. . Been slowly thinning out the house and collections but seems soon as I get rid of something another thing comes in. My hubby is no help with this, he tries to talk me into keeping things I decide should go.Mostly antiques...smile....I hate cleaning but can't stand dirt so I endlessly try to downize.

Spring Gifts from Sandi

Wanted to Thank Sandi of the primitive skate blog for the wonderful Spring gifts.....
The little honey jar is amazing in person, sweet bumble bees etched into glass. Sandi did the transfer on the tea towel herself. Of course the doll I adore. Thank you Sandi everything was so thoughtful. Warm Blessings!~Amy
