skate planter

 

We find all kinds of things buried in our yard and laying around the woods on our property. I guess it comes with owning a house that is almost a century old.  But I’m not complaining. I love the excitement of finding old items and figuring our ways to display them around the house and yard. This spring I found an old skate . It’s pretty small, so it probably belonged to a child. For some reason , I instantly found myself forming an attachment to it and thought ” This will make a very interesting planter.” I mean, what else would one do with an old found skate?? I planted some ice plant in it, because they grow well on walls and are very drought tolerant. I think it’s quite lovely.

THE (pallet) GATE

I am starting to believe that you can create anything from pallets… or at least my husband can……
 
Ah, once again i have been inspired by Pinterest. My obsession on there, more than anything else, is gardening. Actually, I suppose it is my obsession all of the time. In fact, this blog is about to get a lot more gardener friendly and I can ‘t believe it hasn’t already. So anyway, back to the point. I found a gate on Pinterest.com that I was completely IN LOVE  with. So , I asked the man that I am completely in love with to make one for me. So he did. And mostly out of free material – pallets!  It is so fabulous that I want more of them , in all sizes , all around my yard.
 
Here is the photo that inspired me:                                    

Our gate space was bigger so it is a double and I don’t have those     amazing flowers growing over it .. YET!… and the hardware is what what we had laying around , so it is temporary. But i am just as in love with the one  in my yard , or maybe more in love with it, because it was made especially for me.
