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
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.....


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. :)
