Hello...we are back !!! After a long holiday nap :>)))

   Sorry ...Sorry...Sorry  !!!  Thank you all for hanging around waiting patiently for SOMEONE to return to this blog and update on what is going on around the hen houses.
          Hope you all had a wonderful Christmas season. Then enjoyed our spring like January. The stores were crazy busy in January and I have to attribute part of that to the beautiful weather we enjoyed here in Tennessee.
            NOW here we are in February !! How time flies-whew. We enjoyed a sweet Valentines season and now we are getting the itch for SPRING ! SO what better to do in those preparations than to take an outting to go and PICK some treasures. A nice fella came by the store this week and said quote.."I have a bunch of JUNK and this and that would ya'll ever be interested in coming out and taking a look -got several sheds and a barn " ?  Can you imagine the restrain it took not to SQUEEL in his face. Of coarse Debbie and I calmly said-"sure we can come out and take a look". (as we had chills running down our spines)

        So come on along with us and see how this first day went.

Now you may be looking at this and saying- that looks like a bunch of JUNK

  and you would be right!
BUT...having a different eye and perspective
on what these things "COULD" be is what takes this
 from a mess to magic !

I just love a shed !

That is a happy face-
a girl saying you gotta come and see what I found !!

 I mean seriously...I better go see-
she might need a hand-
not sure if  911 could find us way out where we are ! 
No no don't ask where-if we told you we would have to kill you-wink !

Told you she would unearth something rusty and AWESOME !
Minnow buckets-old rusty gate-shabby shelves and more !

OMG !!!
Look what I found !
Debbie says she can't lift that one -hehe
at least I know where it is :>)

I know I may be weird
but when out on these picks
I just LOVE seeing how God
sprinkles his love and beauty
here and there
Check out these cactus.
Thought cactus was a warm weather plant???

And then how cool is this COLOR ?!!!
love love love moss

Ok-ok...back to the good junk !

After a couple of hours diggin-pulling-climbing
here are our piles of yumminess

What will we turn these found objects into
what will YOU turn them into ???

Can't you see these panels as great signs--
jewelry holders-magnet boards

What would you make out of them ??

Now check out this great old chandelier-little tlc and this will be a gem !
What shall we do with the aluminum bowls ???
Wire frame piece---my mind is racing with ideas !

How adorable would this old wagon be in your garden !
Our time diggin was just plain fun !
It makes our hearts giggle with delight
 and our imaginations run with excitement

Oh Yea...probably our best find--
a set of four wonderful old iron chairs
As we all get anxious for spring these guys will probably
not last through the weekend

Debbie and I packed what we could in her little Beemer and our sweet new friend offered to bring our other treasures
back to the store.
Time to head back to the Ville with our FIX filled-as a junker you know what I am talking about!

Both very content as we were traveling along the country roads of Tennessee and suddenly Debbie says "let's go this way"-off our safe know where we are going route and am I ever so glad she did !
That is when we got to meet these sweet babies !
We sqeeled at the same time-made her let me out of the car to pet and get pictures...we R N LUV!!!
Wonder if the codes in our little historic district would mind if we had one of these as our store mascots???

Can you hear him whispering ???
He said-"take me to Nolensville" .
I swear.......sorta :>)

We will have to go back soon and see our new friends...
two legged AND four legged !!

A great afternoon wouldn't ya say?

Glad to back ya'll !
