My garden definitely needs some attention and the project to-do list is endless and keeps getting longer! While we were riding our bikes on the Tybee, I found a thrift store less than two blocks from our house! It’s only open three days a week and for two hours each day! They definitely operate on “Tybee Time”! lol I made it in the day we left. I found a couple of things to add to my stock pile.
A bucket, a candle holder and a window like picture frame all haveI lots of potential!
The day after we got home, I had to go to town…my first stop? The thrift store of course! I found some really good stuff! Two trays, and easel, a metal plant pot holder, a basket with a great shape, I’m not sure what the tall green thing with the sticker is, but I liked it…looks “gardenish”…
and last, but definitely not least, my two favorite finds: Two birds nest candle holders that will look awesome on the porch I will have someday!
And after a week at Tybee Island, I came home to find a lighthouse that I really like! It’s even similar to the Tybee Lighthouse.
A couple of coats of craft paint and the coloring is even more like the markings of Tybee. Did you know that besides the light at night, lighthouses coloring and patterns are called “day marks”? They help the ships navigate by day. I didn’t know that til last week! ;-)

My repainted lighthouse:
See? black, white, black! BTW I climbed all 178 steps to the top of that lighthouse! Great view and great exercise!
Great family too! :-)
While getting pictures off of my camera card, I found this picture I had taken at our last get together at my sis-in-law’s. This is her water-lovin’ Lab Moses. He will chase any size stick into the water and retrieve it…but don’t get in his way! lol I do not usually capture the Kodak moment, but that day I was lucky and caught this!
This is another project on my to-do list as everyone in the family who has seen it, wants me to do something with it and give it to her for her birthday! Any fun suggestions?
Out to the garden for a while!
