English-ish Garden Entrance In The Making
I had to travel for my other gig this week and came home to discover Joe had decided to RE-RE-landscape the Barn House entrance. I have been told time-and-time again that the “Creative Director’s” ideas flow in this manner. It’s a good thing we only have four and a half short weeks before our opening. There is plenty of time to complete a few brand new projects by May 24th! :o)
So, today we dug holes for the gates and picket fence for the entrance. We purchased the gates from our friend Toree (Narrow Gate Antiques not far from us). She picked these up on her last excursion to England. Saves us a trip! She is having a Spring Clean-Out Sale on April 26th that you probably don’t want to miss. 12404 NE 72nd Avenue in Vancouver – 360-907-5814.
Joe has been a VERY busy shopper this week. Sorry Natalie, I heard he snatched this green chair right from under your nose at the Estate Sale in Camas the other day. If it makes you feel any better, a piece of it fell off when he got it home and now he has another project. HA! At another sale he found four very cool rusty iron chairs that will get burlap or linen-covered seats.
These are some other finds…
And even more!
After all of that digging today, I think it’s time for a nice, hot bath.
Have a wonderful week!!!
