    I just forgot to post photos. I only found two things I really wanted because I purposely held myself in check when it came to the little things and because I really didn't find much that I had to have....except these two things.

    I won't get them situated outside until the temperatures drop a lot compared to what they have been this summer.
    And yes that is our cat Wizard in the bottom right of the photo and no his eyes are not really two shades of green.

    It looks as though Wizard approves of the open work screen. Do you want to have plants climbing over it or have you another use in mind for it?

    I love Morning Glories so I was thinking of planting a lot of Grampa Ott seeds around the white metal one and maybe hanging a couple of cute doo-dads I have to peek through the vines.
    The wood one I think would look cute as the backdrop somewhere but not sure where yet.

    A mini-trellis, nice find Toni! I'm trying to make out what the decoration is on the fence. I'm guessing it's a flower of some sort but I'm also see a fish. Time for the optician I think.

    Frank, I think it is a stylized tulip ? I haven't decided whether I am going to paint that piece or leave it as is but am leaning to leaving it alone.

    I love and adore garage sale/thrift shop/boutique junque finds. They are the BEST and the finds are soooooooo wonderful.

    The saying "one mans trash is another mans treasure" is definitely true.

    Some of my very best and most prized possessions have been got whilst poking through what others don't want (mostly garage sales).

    I thought the plaque thingy on front of the fence was a stylized tulip too. It definitely smacks to me of Holland.

    It could be a nice talking point if you leave it alone. A mystery :)
