    We just had to get away from home last Thursday, the holiday had been way too active and strenuous for us so we took off early Thursday morning for our favorite trip from Benbrook to Granbury with stops at 6 junque shops and supper at Garcia along the way.

    The butterfly will hang on the back wall, I just love enamel bowls no plans for it yet, the rusty metal thing was too cute to pass up and the old fashioned light fixture will be re-wired and installed in my garden hide-a-way next Spring.

    I love shutters, they come in very handy for shelves where ever I need one. Yet another Coke crate also for shelving, another door for my hide-a-way and more barn wood for same and the stand in front will be painted black with the name of the back garden "FRED" painted on it.

    I'm turning green looking at that lovely butterfly Toni. :smt088 It would look fantastic in my garden. I have a love of enamel bowls as well and use them making things like pineapple upside down cakes - much easier to clean after baking too. You must show us the stand once you have it painted up and in place in your back garden.

    Good stuff Toni. I too collect the enamel ware. So many uses for it.
