What to do...




Does your husband collect "his" kind of things when you are both out yard sale shopping? Mine always has and most times I just can't let HIS things sit there in a box in the garage. A few years back I planted his antique rusty wrenches among the flowers that sit on HIS antique scale that sits inbetween our garage doors. Tucked in is a little wooden shoe, and I'm sure he smiles everytime he sees his 8 antique rusty wrenches in all sizes standing among the pretty flowers. I know he likes it because he keeps it watered!
So what does your husband haul home that you use creatively?

I love how creative you are. You can take anything and make it into a smile. Love you shoes?

Oh, I dont think I have laughed this hard over anything in my life Jeni...I have tears of laughter running down my face with black mascara and eyeliner mixed, had to show my husband as I was laughing out loud so hard I couldnt even stop.
P.S. wish I your husbands collection...would be much much funner than my rusty junk! And you don't have to have a 130 year old outhouse in your back yard either!

Hi Brenda, I tried to leave you a comment earlier, guess I am just not good at this yet! Thanks for all your help on my blog. My answer to your question, I wish Jack DID haul home something other than RC airplane and helicopter parts that he has crashed at the modelport. Any ideas for turning these into something "shabby chic"??? Julie Marie

Spray paint them off white or pink and use for yard ornament??? Build a cat or dog house?

Just kidding!

That looks so cute. Love it. Something like that would look so cute by my new shed. I can't really say he collects much of anything. I do enough for both of us! Mimi
