Playing in the yard!

It was a beautiful day, perfect for playing in the yard!
This is the front of my house where I have this little cottage garden.

I found this iron gate at my favorite junk shop, my garden sign fits perfect in between!

The little rusty table was a freebie.

Do you recognize the planter? 
It's a tire rim I got at the dump!

My impatiens fit nicely in here along with some shells.

I have two of these cast iron birds, another dump find!

My small collection of buoys. 
I don't live near the ocean anymore, but I can pretend I do! 

This is out in front of my shed.
The shutters and planter were freebies.

The end of the shed. 
I need to put actual windows in here, right now I just have screens.

This chair was another freebie.
I used my grandfathers old tractor seat for the seat of the chair.

It doesn't cost a lot to decorate your yard, especially when 
repurposing and recycling otherwise throw away items.

And as I was doing this.... 
my eight year old, Sullivan, was digging up the yard!!

He was very proud of this huge hole he dug (me, not so much)
I guess that's just what boys do!!!


  1. I spotted those buoys right away, love them! The tire rim planter is genius!
    I love everything about your yard decorations...everything but the hole, lol.

  2. Really cute Bridget! But Sullivan needs a sandbox!!

  3. Hey, look who is above me.............Amy! well bridget,that's how I just found you. Blame it on Amy. Happy to be here. I'm a fellow Granite Stater just in Stratham, so not too far. I'll have to make a day of it, your shop sounds wonderful! LOVE the buoys. They look fantastic. I really need to string some on the front of our shed. love the hole too - wink wink.

  4. Maybe you could make a little pond in that hole that your son made! Lemonade from lemons and all right? Your yard art is lovely.


Thank you so much for taking the time to leave me a message I love reading them!
