Birthday Road Trip

My girl friend took me on a road trip for my birthday. (Sorry, but I forgot my camera!) She had discovered a wonderful shop and a great place to eat with some of her friends. She even gave me money for my present so I could spend it at the shop.
I got this rustic birdhouse that is a perfect fit for my shade garden but my favorite score was ...

...this awesome weather vane!
It was on sale for 11 dollars and I had to have it! I thought I'd just put it on a fence post but it is the perfect topper for my shed! It even spins with the wind.

Talk about a perfect fit!
