A wonderful gift


My dad had a treasure in his workshop that I adored. It is an old wash tub and it even had the lid...I have so wanted to have on of these for my flower garden. The other day he drove in our driveway with this treasure in his truck..actually delivered it to me. I am so thrilled. After Thanksgiving I am going to put it in the shed for safe keeping....but next spring I will be thrilled to fill it full of wonderful plants. He had been using for years and I had never seen it before. He also gave me a large barn door that I am thinking about making into a headboard for our bed. He didn't deliver it but it is safe at his house for now.

Hi, I'm so glad you stopped by to visit me! Very nice to meet you. I love your bathroom project & that is a neat iron piece you picked up at HL. Love that place. I'll have to come back & see it all finished. Please come back & visit me too as often as you can.

I love treasures like that. Old is better than new any day. We can always find a special use for those things especially if they belonged to family members and are part of past memories.

Akk, I have serious envy. So wonderful, I love it. I would use it in my kitchen to hold things and be a work space. You lucky girl. Clarice
