Tucked inside our garden...just steps away from my studio sits a tiny garden folly known as

Constructed from reclaimed doors, windows and millwork from our home renovation
and a few pieces I picked up here and there...

Tinker is truly a scrappy piece of Heaven!

A perfect place to pot plants

or dabble with a fun chandelier project

There is always something that needs to be tinkered with around our house

Antique pocket doors refitted for their new life here at Tinker.

Burlap draperies hung from upholstery tacks

The roof line of tinker has it's very own look...a row of door hardware, keys and numbers, mostly salvaged from our own home.

One Day...Tinker will appear to have grown where it's chippy paint will have aged to a silvery white and the Sweet Autumn Clematis will have mostly covered these little trinkets.
This is as it should be...Tinker has always been here in one sense or a slight nod to the creative side of life.
