Hello my friends,
I'm sure that many of you know that hubby, my son, and son in law built me a she shed last spring. It took until Fall for her to be completed. This photo was taken at a Fall Tea I hosted. Since then hubby has added a pergola over the porch area.
We stored some of outdoor furniture inside for winter and I could hardly wait to empty it out and play!
While giving her a good spring cleaning I made a few changes.
Notice the teal green cabinet in the top center photo. I used it to house some of my pots and seed packets. Our youngest daughter moved into an apartment and asked if she could take it to hold some of her clothes.
It sat on top of an old iron rite and I place everything inside of a tote that just sat on the ground inside of the shed.
At our last junkin adventure with the estate I am helping with I spied something in one corner of the basement.
It looked to be the top piece to an old stove.
Although I'm sure the wooden shelves originally had to be metal.
It was instant love!
This baby has curves!! :)
Wonderful metal brackets and two little plates, perfect for
holding a pot!
The top shelf holds a floral tin that stores seeds and my small cloche collection that was gifted to me by my friend, Joyce.
I placed my small finial collection on one end. I collect so darn many things. lol!
I am loving this sweet piece! Worth a second look. (wink)
I have this old dresser that I painted a few years ago. It's great for holding gardens supplies. I had it out on my deck for a few years and the veneer top pulled back. So now that I'm a tile expert, (hardly). I decided to tile the top using a broken bumble bee pot and a couple of yellow bowls.
I placed a large roll of jute on a metal pie tin underneath an old funnel. I wove it up through, and now it's handy for tying back vines and plants.
On my gal trip to St. George with friends I bought 3 children's brooms at a yard sale for $2 each. Don't know why, but I just love them! They already had little hooks on the top so I hung them in the shed. Handy for me and the grands.
One of them was on it's last leg, but I couldn't leave it behind.
I tied a couple of baskets from the garden edging I added to the beams. One is a gathering baskets with a handle. It's divided into three sections. I can hardly wait to gather some blooms in it!
And last of all, Hilltop has a new guardian watching over it.
My friend, Shirley from Zettas Aprons made this sweet tomato farmer. She formed his head out of clay and the Tomato Dust can is super cute. She brought him by one day and said that he wanted to live in my shed. Isn't that the sweetest?
I think he likes it here.
Hanging out inside of Hilltop Cottage sure makes me happy!
