Demo Treasure!

My daughter and I went to a couple sales last week. We went into the garage (One of my favorite places to shop!) and I spotted a shelf in the corner made with 3 old posts. It was marked 10 dollars and was 50% off! Of course, I had to have it! I was told that if I wanted it I had to remove it from the wall. A man had purchased a vice that was attached and wanted the shelf too but couldn't get it off.


My daughter backed away and said "You should never say that to my Mom!" The only tools left were a couple small hammers so I grabbed them both and started working. Another worker came and watched.


As you can tell, I got it loose! The second worker carried it to the car for me and when I thanked him he said it was worth it to watch me remove it! The other worker said she couldn't wait to see the man that tried to remove it earlier and tell him about it.


I was going to tear it apart but Laurie suggested I try it in the garden all together first. I dug around in the shed and basement to come up with some 'stuff' to put on it. I'm lovin' it! How about you?


Sorry about Bloomin' Tuesday this week! It was a busy weekend and I just didn't get to it. It will be back next week.

I bet the guy with the vise wishes he had tried a little harder now! It looks great in the garden.

I love it! Does your daughter have a camera on her phone? If so, she missed out on a good opportunity for you to show us your ingenuity.
