I have spent almost every waking hour outside in my garden this Summer and still...
Have a ton to do!
Yesterday I spent the entire day cleaning poor Tinker House!
I had really made a mess in there and didn't realize how bad it had gotten until I had guests this weekend and really looked at it!
Since it's cleaned up right now...
I thought I would show you around and answer some of your emails about Tinker house.
Tinker House is constructed of reclaimed doors, windows, millwork and other trim items, Most of which came from our own homes renovation.
The only new parts are the four 4x4x12 posts that are cemented in the ground on all four corners and the banding board that holds them together.
Everything else (except for the screws :) Are reclaimed!
Officially Tinker house is a garden shed but to me...
It's much more than that...it's my sanctuary.
My quiet place.
A place to store my garden supplies...
The floor of Tinker House is concrete pavers on a sand base and reclaimed bricks on the edges.
You can see how high the flood waters got by the skirt on my workbench!
(I haven't replaced it yet and still don't know if I will.)
I seem to use a lot of twine and jute so I keep larger spools of it out here!
The darling Eiffel tower scissors were a gift from a dear friend! Thank you Lynne!
There is still a little loft above this side but these days...I only store a few extra pots!
It's just too high for me to get to !
Yes, those are vintage doorknobs and locks sets on the roof! Some even have the keys wired to them!
Just for fun~ A tiny touch of whimsy that the birds appreciate!
Autumn will be here before you know it and the Sweet Autumn Clematis will be in bloom on the roof ...I can't wait to see it!
In the meantime however...
I have sheets to take off the line and carry to my new laundry room!
It's almost complete and I look forward to sharing it with you along with a settee project I've started!
Yep...always something going on here at our house! Even Emmitt seems to get involved!
Before I forget...
I am so excited about being a part of the most amazing event taking place this October!
In Tennessee no less!
This will be my first time to just be a vendor no event production tasks.
