shed inside

image

One corner of my garden shed.  We worked on it over the long weekend, hung shelving and cabinets on the walls, put up the curtains, laid the rugs, hung the front door, and many other small details.  Already I am drying flower petals to be used for incense soon.

This is the best workbench, countertop is a deal from the restore last year, Henry made the swivel stool out of 2 different broken stools, using the good parts of both.

Found this small chest a couple of years ago at a yard sale, it fits perfectly beside the front door.

“I want a garden shed, I said to Henry. “Guess I will buy one.”

“Nope, he said. “Guess I will build one.”

and so we built a deck, then walls, then Henry proved he is Super Man and stood the walls up.  OK, well, it wasn’t quite that simple.  Those walls are heavy. and large.wpid-2015-05-18-16.25.00.jpg But walls are going up, one at a time.  This whole shed is made out of windows, doors, lumber that we found here and there, freecycle, yard sales, by the side of the road.  The only thing we purchased was lumber for the floor, and several boxes of screws.

Here you can see my green house windows, Henry, the glass artist, will fix the broken windows, hang shutters, roof, fill cracks, build counter tops, and cabinets, hang doors, hang shelving, and herb drying racks, and a attend to a  few more minor details this weekend.  More pics later.

projects in the new house

wpid-2014-10-27-08.39.39.jpgHi, long time no see!!  We have been busy, with the shop, of course, and with buying a new house.  it is a 100-year-old adobe house, large enough, and with a huge yard.  A new garden will sprout soon but first there is the moving in process, lots of truck loads of furniture and belongings, curtain hanging, kitchen arranging, and much more.

Although the house is move in ready, for the most part, some projects needed to be accomplished right away.
Like this door on my sun porch, leading to the ‘as yet to be garden’. Pluma says it is creepy, has 100-year-old paint on it and spiders. “Fix it Mom,’ he says.

Todays harvest will be lunch soon.

Pansies are almost finished for the year, with the high temps we have been having they decide to retire.  Will plant more next fall for winter growth.

The Pansys have passed away, making way for the new,

They were lovely while they lasted, but the high triple digit temperatures have done them in.  I pressed many in the pages of a large book , later I will use them in artwork and many more were dried to be used in a special incense blend.
