Is that a rusted hoe in your kitchen?

What is that in my kitchen?
Hey everyone joining in with 
For hanging things up with priceless junk!

We live in a farmhouse with a
 Barn right outside 

so it shouldn'tbe too hard to accomplish that.
I have always enjoyed farmhouse, barn style things in the house, on the patio, in my sewing room.

Hubby will ask me where something is...
and I routinely say....hmmmm it should be 
around here 
somewhere!
yeah it's been painted or planted
in...

Bwahahaha...

I can't lie to the 
man
 after 32 years of wedded bliss...cough cough!
When things fall off their handle...why...they come  inside for their second chance at life.

Outdoor on the patio, I added a plant holder onto a fence post and now use it as a lantern holder.
Voila!
More fence posts....I love them...that and shutters....with peeling paint....

The rake below holds chalk for the message board.
Outdoor we have coat hooks that hold towels for guests while they are swimming....they also hold canning jars that we use for lighting.
IN my home office...I hang baskets from an old shelf I got when we first got married. The baskets hold paper clips, white out, paper hole punch...staples...little things. The notes pinned on the bottom shelf are from my dad years ago....sweet little notes he wrote to me. I look at them every day!
Thanks for coming by!
Blessings,
Debbie
