~PINTEREST INSPIRATION~

Pinterest...the online visual tool where one can browse, discover and bookmark creative ideas from a worldwide catalog...I find Pinterest a wonderful distraction from the real world (Clinton/ Trump)...it's a place where your mind can freely roam... in any direction...a happy place...locating interests unique to you...so... with a little help from the mister (okay...a lot of help from the mister)... two of my pinned projects have come to fruition...first up...a primitive fireplace insert, constructed for our little electric wood stove...the insert itself is not completely finished it still needs to be "scruffed"  up... given a couple coats of  wax and square nails to hang "things" Christmas stockings, herbs, gourds, etc... I am so pleased with the way it turned out... it's  just as I had hoped...
Second...a potting closet...Mr. Dogtrot built this for me while I was at the island this summer...it fits perfectly between two windows on the north side (back) of the house...it is home to chicken supplies, garden tools, Mantis tiller, wheelbarrow and other odds and ends...would you like to know what  the best part is?... I don't have to share...it's all MINE...no toys, no man tools...
Come Tuesday, please don't forget to vote!!!

Wonderful projects. Hubby is quite handy. How sweet he built the potting closet and you don't have to share :)
This Tuesday is the most important election ever. Yes, I hope everyone does exercise their right to vote.

I remember these and always love looking at them.
I will be glad when voting is done too. Feeling the anxiety of it.
Have a wonderful day, I am off later to take some items to my booth.
