One Day's Finds

My husband went to scrounge things from a garage full of things left over from an estate sale. He was told to take anything he wanted from the house and garage. They will be demolishing both. He got many windows, wood for a picket fence, cast iron sink, stainless steel sink,chairs, bottles, old garden tools, sewing machine stand, boxes of tiles and much, much more. We will be doing several projects over the winter and next spring!

Homemade Utility Vehicle

Eddie started with a lawn mower that he didn't use anymore and finished with a homemade utility vehicle! He lengthened the frame, added some big back tires, customized the seat so two can ride, and added a bed so it can be a useful scrounging vehicle. Now he has something to play on in the snow too! We had a snow day and he played in the snow!

John Deere Christmas Village

Eddie has always loved John Deere Tractors. He would love to get an old one to restore. He has a Ford Tractor right now, but still hopes to someday own a Deere. When the John Deere Christmas Village came out I decided it was a perfect collection to start. It is an adorable village setting. The pictures are a little dark, but it is supposed to be night after all.

First Snow of the Season

I can't believe it's been almost a month since I posted anything here. Today was our first snow of the season. We are only supposed to get maybe an inch or two and it's not expected to stick. It's funny that two days ago we had a record warm temperature of 63 degrees. The previous record was in 1998 and it was 53 degrees. So, I think we are due for the snow. I was shopping this morning and it started snowing while I was in a mall. It sort of puts you more in the holiday spirit.
