Hello Spring

Hello perfectly weathered galvanized tub with just the perfect amount of patina.

Hello simple ways to make my boring wood fence happy.

Hello rusty twirly basket.  Goodbye ugly plastic pot I keep meaning to change.

Hello old estate sale hoops and pretty pansies.

Hello chippy paint and mossy fences.

Hello yellow flowers with petals so big and heavy they can hardly manage their own weight.

Hello little bird peeking out from the ivy.

Hello silly street sign.

Hello 100+ year old Hungarian baby bathtub that holds tubs of flowers for now, and ice and drinks when we have parties.

Hello old wine barrel with a bitty herb garden.

Hello bright orange flowers that open and close daily.

Hello old sign and weathered hooks to wrangle beach towels and bathings suits for springtime sprinkler running.

Hello comfy patio furniture and peeling paint that I love more and more as it wears away each year.

Hello finials and garden art.

Hello chippy bird baths and rocks with sweet reminders.

Hello baskets that aren’t meant for outdoor use but couldn’t be more perfect.

Hello fuschia just waiting to bloom.

Hello working Pepsi fridge turned planter.

Hello invitation to sip iced water while the kids play.

Hello spring and the color it brings to my bitty corner of the world.

How’s your yard looking so far?  And any ideas on where I can get more of those hoopy fence things?

Linking up with Lisa for Hello Monday…on a Wednesday.

I'm a mom to four. A wife to one. I believe in story. I love telling you about mine and would love to hear yours. There's really no sense in wasting our suffering and not sharing in each other's joy. We're all in this together...even if it doesn't always feel like it.

      My yard is small but with unexpected containers and lots of those cheap $2 6-packs of flowers, it definately makes it happy! You are welcome any time!!!

    Where did you ever find that Hungarian baby bathtub? I love going to auctions and estate sales and have never seen anything like it? Do you remember how much it was? Your yard is gorgeous! It looks like such a nice and private retreat! Hooks on the fence are a genius idea!

      I went to an antique/junk show last month and couldn’t resist. It was a little pricey (for me anyway) at $110, but I’m so glad we splurged because it’s so stinking fun!
