About Me

My photo
I'm a lover of vintage times and simple elegance of another era. I'm waiting a while for my special little farmhouse. While I'm waiting, I'm making good use of my time creating lovlies with my crochet hook n thread or yarn, and baking and cooking from scratch for my family.

Take your needle my child and
work at your pattern it will come out a
rose by and by. Life is like that...one
stitch at a time taken patiently.

Pallet "Flower Bed" Blast from the past

Since Spring is coming upon us, I thought it would be a good idea to revist a past posting, reusing and renewing using old pallets.  I had been on the search for pallets, and all I could find were the large,very heavy ones, I knew they wouldn't fit in the car. One day taking my boys to school, it happened to be a trash day, pouring down rain.. Lo and behold someone had put this potential beauty on the curb. I didn't have time to stop and pick it up, and hoped I would beat the trashman....when I rounded the corner
there it was...I scooped it up and it fit in the car perfect.....
It was meant just for me to have it.....

A


Side pieces were added, the headboard & footboard are the pallet...

added to the headboard/footboard are fence post, you can get a pack of them at your Home Depot.
A little paint and wha-la.....
This is my little " Flower Bed " with beautiful Zinnias which grew from seed last year, I saved
the seeds and hope that they will take again....Don't they look lovely and vintage?

That is such a lovely idea--and the zinnias are so pretty. They always look a bit old fashioned I think. :)
