All is not quite what you think when you first see this picture. Suzanne’s husband has been a collector of all things antique, and this is his own adaption of an early racing bike. I thought it was the real thing! Amazing, isn’t it?

Becky had some old drawers she desired to put to use. When she decided on a raised planter of sorts, she invented the A frame idea and the end result is this very cool 2 drawer masterpiece. I want one for indoors for my paperwork!

This little rustic shed has become a focal point for my own backyard. Decked out with a few new flowers and new junk, it also provides a story… and the reason it will never be repainted.
