yard and porch photos 2012

My rummage sale find of the year..a three piece set white wicker.!
I paid 60.00 and the price tags in the drawer said
 the dresser was originally $125, ottoman $75 and no price on the chair
 but came from Pier one Imports..probably $150+ cushions included with the set.
total value probably around $350
What you you think...did I do good????

If you drive by in the early am or evening..
you will probably see us sitting here .
  You might say we "rock" LOL

"Matilda" is now sporting a denim garden dress and gloves
she is still waving at the truckers as they pass by..what a hussy!

The old fairy basket garden now overgrown
(saved over from last summer) This ivy is not a perennial but can be brought
 in during the winter and grown each year outside..very prolific and pretty!

Mothers day hanging basket from the kids.

wicker plant stand I bought at a flea market at London Mills
Spoon river Drive, which is held first two weekends of October.
My plants are happy here!

The folk's old pump

Mom's old flower cart She bought this from Bud Nicholson back in the 60's , when he  ran Amboy Flower and Gift. ..we have wrens in this birdhouse Bob made years ago...
back again this year. bob made over 7000 birdhouses when we were selling crafts!
You still see some around in different towns in  the area
