Vertical Chicken Wire Planter on Pallet Wood

Last winter when my son was home visiting over the Christmas holiday, we have a few warmer days and he offered to do a little work for me.  I don’t think he was extremely thrilled to start disassembling pallet wood skids, but he made the best of it and by the end of the afternoon, […]

Flower Pot Bread at Patti’s Settlement: LBL part5

If you went out to dinner at a restaurant and the waiter put down a flower pot with a loaf of bread baking right out of it, wouldn’t you do a double take?  I certainly did when I sat down to dinner with my son last spring at Patti’s Settlement, located just outside of Land […]

A cheap card board storage box, painted with a grain sack looking stripe is the first of my  LOL (Labor of Love) storage box series.  Of course these days we all know what LOL usually means… and that is probably what most of you are doing… at me… right about now, for actually holding a […]
