Have ya ever been standing in the grocery store check-out line and observed the magazine rack? There are many magazines published by celebrities featuring a picture of them on every cover every month. I always wanted my YARD and farm to be featured in a magazine, but I live in the sand dunes and sagebrush so my yard is not magazine material. Really it's not that bad, but it is a struggle trying to keep it like I want it. So, I decided to do my own magazine article about my yard and farm with my picture on the front cover. I am a bit self-conscious so the front cover would look something like this:
Then you would see before and after pictures showing a beautiful transformation of dirt and de-brie into a Paradise. Well I haven't any before pictures (Wish I did), and I don't have any after (it is still in progress), but I do have some NOW pictures.
As you pull into our yard you see a bright yellow picnic table. ( We eat out-side all summer.) With a chandelier dangling from a tree branch over-head.
As you look a little further you spy bright green chairs and what is that? It looks like a dining room hutch. Nope- guess again, it is a gun cabinet re-cycled into a outdoor whats-it. This has been sitting in my drive-way, er------ out-door dining room------ for the past 7 years. It has dishes, paintings and glass bottles inside. Carver spent a whole day painting it. I LOVE it!
Glen made this table about 40 years ago as a teenager. It is held together with matching yellow baling twine.
Another project of Glen's is the bench that folds down into a picnic table. I made the green chair seat. Just put a couple of boards across 2 matching wooden chairs and then painted it.
The pictures above are just in the drive-way. In the next volume I will show you what's beyond the BLUE door.
