It’s not only my illegal rebel garden that has been growing!
I may have planted too much in my tiny space of 48 square feet but I’ll just have to expand next year and have more planting space. The sweet red peppers are looking great and the tomatillos are getting bigger! I love watching it all grow.
I might have planted too many carrots, they seem to be taking over the top box. The Roma tomatoes in the bottom picture look nice but in person they look a little wimpy but my guess is that the squash is sucking up all the nutrients from the dirt.
My husband was not happy I sold this piece I re-finished. He liked it so much he wanted to keep it. I really like all the intricate work done on the top and the black paint gives it a fresh update that it desperately needed.
What lady doesn’t need a little Tiffany Blue box in her life! This one turned out nice too. I like the simplicity of it. It originally had a wooden look to it without actually being wood. I thought of turning it into a book library. Can you imagine how books I could fit in this with an assortment of shelves added. It has wheels on the bottom so it easily moves from room to room.
These are all ready for the front porch. One for gramma and one for the littles. They were originally black but no one seemed to have the least bit of interest in them so I re-finished them into a misty aqua, an ideal color choice for a little girl or boy. They’re about 75 years old and built solid. Maybe a seat cushion would add to the appeal??
So my rescued furniture business has been growing as well. It’s always nice to find something you love that you can make money at, slowly but surely things are going well with it. I still haven’t gotten to my list of books I wanted to read this summer. Why do summers always go by so quickly?!? With parties, weddings, bbq’s, beaches and boating it seems like I’m living in the wrong state, sometimes I hear Florida calling my name. What’s your favorite summer activity?
