New stuff to me.
Yard sales, and garage sales.
One of my favorite things to do... to find old stuff .
Like the old oar.
Great old green paint on it... almost wore off.
Step basket.. to keep things organized that need to be taken upstairs.
Old oil lantern.
At a yard sale, my sweet husband snagged this treasure up for me.
I'm thinking of putting on a hook next to the barn door.
Old light fixture.
Perfect for the front of the granary.
My sweet husband got all the rough in done for the electrical to the barn, granary, and garage.
I'm really looking forward to seeing this light glowing each night on the granary.
One of my favorite ones in town.
One day... long ago, it was the heart of the farm.
Rafters in the old barn (above) and a wooden pulley wheel.
Hard working barn; once upon a time.
Old side walk.
The hose laid out to give me an idea on how it would look, once the new cement was done.
I knew that I wanted a slight curve in the sidewalk.
New side walk.
Better than I imagined.
Soft curve, welcoming.
I love the perennial beds that my sweet husband and Spencer added.
Fresh paint on the porch, fresh walkway, and fresh flowers and herbs.
Yes.. I love old stuff.
And, old stuff made 'new' .....just for me.
*On a side note... my old blog is open again. You can access old recipes, renovation pictures, etc..

Attitude of gratitude:
~I am so grateful that we've had the help of two of our kids all summer long.
Could NOT have gotten a fraction of the projects around here done with out them.
Countless trips to the landfill, and countless shovel fulls of yard debris.
Lawns, mowed, watering done, and of course.... all the roofing completed.
Amazing, wonderful children. How blessed I am.
~I'm grateful that the nights are getting cooler, and the morning sunrises longer.
A touch of Fall is in the air.
We actually saw some leaves starting to change in the canyon.
~I'm grateful for the gift of two huge sacks of peaches. I'm drying them in 'Ol Harvey'.
How tasty they will be on a cold winter night.
