Blue Sky Farm

My blogging posts and photos are part of me . I think of this as a scrapbook of my life. The names have not been changed.. they are real people who have crossed my path along my journey. Some I know intimately, my family and friends. If their names are mentioned it's a sure sign they are special to me and I love them dearly...come along see for yourself, perhaps you know some of them too..

Found it, Hauled it, Painted it...


Well it took some muscle and a lot of persuading but Here it is.. My vision of a great entry to Blue sky Farm from the road.
I found it in the field next door covered with wire, weeds & a ton of dirt. I begged yeah , begged my fabulous husband to just "Please come take a look~see  and to visualize it at the entrance to the property with the flowers tumbling out of the old bathtub ( we already had placed there.) He finally gave in and we drug the monster out of the field, up our road . Man it was H e a v y....It was really ugly & a  rusty red but with a couple cans of Flat black spray paint It looks  just as I pictured..It is 10 feet long with plenty more room to hang more baskets, old tins,  flowers, and more.. I can picture it with Lights  strung at Christmas and a Scarecrow for the fall can you? It made my day....

Very cute. My husband would never have done that for me.

Cheryl, it looks fabulous! Yes, I can picture it with seasonal decorations, and the lights at Christmas will look wonderfully cheerful.

Thanks Yvette & Debbie. I am blessed to have a husband who will take on many of my brainstorm ideas.. He & I both like most of the same looks when it comes to decorating inside & outside.. Its the ideas I have that he cannot visualize that I have to pour on the wife charm and call in my favors... But I know he may say "Oh I don't know about that... at first then after I draw pictures & beg him to help out..He usually goes along with it.. Often I just have to start a big project or undertaking when his macho side pulls through and helps his lady do the job.

I love it and I can see why you did the begging thing. Glad to see it worked. Oh what fun you are going to have decorating it for the seasons. I know the wheels are a turning. Make sure you keep the pictures coming.
