Outdoor Junk and Vintage Style

Welcome to our back porch....the barn has been raided...hubby can't find his wheelbarrow, his chicken feeders....we have hundreds...because we have hundreds of chickens...they won't miss one....
I hide garden tools, or extra potting soil in the taller chicken feeder below on our vintage washer...it is a cover up!
 We have a vintage refrigerator from my hubby's grandmother...she used to keep cold soda's in it on her porch, and now we do too!
I added an old door to a throw away (from the barn) bookshelf.
...behind this old wood door are some of my things...
and further down where you can't see are cans of bug spray
fertilizer, garden tools, gloves, tanning lotion...necessary items for the porch!



 My old vintage bathtub is starting to bloom...




 ...this rooster keeps getting out of the barn....he is not friendly either...so I let him have his space.

I do like all your garden pots and things! I need to find more containers so I think I'd best look in the garage and find what I can. May not be as cute as your chicken feeders, though. Have a great week.♥♫

Everything is so cute and fresh and flowery! I'm still trying to keep the bunnies out of my yard. They snuck in and stole - yes STOLE - my chicks and hens. Oh my goodness! I just love looking at your pretty pictures. Have a great weekend.

There's always something beautiful here at your blog Debbie! I come running over when I need some creative inspiration :) I thought of you today, when I remembered, and because I know you are missing your Daddy. Thinking of you, sweet blog friend.
