Nice Mo. Update on my $7.50 vac it only needed a new belt! SCORE!When I drove up to the sale I saw something that said Beanies. I was walking around the sale and saw the wooden box with handle thing so I got it. Later I went looking for the beanie thing and didn't see it, was only going to look at it for my friend. The box was hanging around in the back of the station wagon with all the yard & cleaning tools. I took the new vac to clean a house Wed. While putting the vac back in the car I saw the beanies again it is carved into the other side of that stupid box I got. DUH

Thanks Gals... it was fun working with my Hubs for the few hours it took to wrangle it up there. Today he came home with 5 huge sheets of tempered glass, I don't know what we will do with them... there as big as doors, and 2 of them are even bigger. ? hmmm, thinking cap is on.

what you CAN'T see... is the pile of bleeding heart and jasmine on the ground behind it. They were on my old trellis that collapsed. I will spend the next couple of days trying to feed it in and thru this new one.

Okay, its been a LONG time coming but my trellis made from a bed frame and a futon finally went up yesterday. I hope you remember it and like it now in its new life. Here is the before and after.

Nice plane. I found a couple of yard sales on the way to work this morning. Got a couple of little wooden planter boxes and a wooden box with handle at the top not sure what you call them I have a bunch of them now. It was $2 the little planter boxes were only 50 cents each. Even got a vacuum cleaner for $7.50 it makes a bad sound on carpet but ok on attachments. Hope it is an easy fix for a $300 Riccar vac. She had the cutest potting bench and wooden bench.

A New Garden in Dayton

The yard was a blank slate and I longed for plants; so I started a garden. Food and flowers will grace this place soon.
