Les Fleurs

Don't you love it when you go to the grocery store
to buy something practical and find
something pretty on clearance.
Th
ese beauties haven't even bloomed yet,
but they were clearing them out.
I brought them home,
plopped the disposable pots into real pots,
and then placed them into my "fleur" cart.
This cart has been part of our lawn art for years; it's even served at a few wedding receptions. Several years ago, inspired by an old wagon wheel, I designed this cart. My hubby took my design plan and made it work. It's weathered, crooked, cracked and chipped,
but it's a little something that
makes our home unique to us.

I love this lawn cart. I asked a friend that has horses and lives on a farm to keep and eye out for things on my garden wish list to look for wheels - wood or meatl or rusty - she called one day to say she some cool wheels - well they were the color of a grayish teal and it was two large wooden wheels from a cart from a Kiosk wagon a friend gave her! I love them. Isn't it fun the things we find out there! I love the nests, feathers and eggs - I collect them, make cards with them - I'll try to post a photo of some of my cards soon and plan to list them on Etsy (in my spare time! - I sell them to local shops). Robin's egg blue is my favorite color. Your site is right up my alley...Jennifer jennsthreegraces
