web-rock-030These are the two adirondack chairs my friend and I rescued from the curb.  


 My husband made a new arm for one and I repaired the backs of both of them.  web-s-001

We also had to reinforce one of the legs.  Then I  primed and painted them glossy red. web-s-003

 They still had some years left in them.

I am glad they will be spending that time giving us another great place to sit and enjoy my garden.

I found these vintage castiron andirons on the curb several years back.  My neighbor threw them away. 

 Again, I am amazed at what people will put out to the curb to sit in the landfill.  But I am so glad she did because they are mine now.

I keep them near my fireplace but every October they don the front porch for Halloween.  Their green marble eyes glow if there is light (like a fire) behind them.  I just love Halloween, don’t you??
