The first two pictures are of items I purchased that will be used in my greenhouse/potting shed. The barrel will be aged and finished appropriately and set as a rain barrel at the corner of the potting shed. The garden hose will be inside the greenhouse along with the watering can. The birdhouse will be found somewhere in the landscaping outside the buildings as will the bucket and the adorable Reutter rabbit hutch. Don't you just love those bunnies?!?
The second photo shows a ceiling fan which will probably go in the potting shed, a bicycle planter for the garden, two large ceramic planters to flank the garden doors of the greenhouse, and a long strip of led lights that I will be using to make hanging fluorescent lights above the planting tables in the greenhouse. See - all bought with a purpose in mind!
The next two groupings are also for planned projects - the two hanging lamps are for the pub I will get to some day, and, of course, the quilting shop will benefit from the items in the second picture.
Once again, I broke my own rules with the purchase of these next two groupings. I have a weakness for porcelain from Reutters, even though I have no idea what I will use this luncheon set or the canning set for. I just thought they were beautiful. And the boat and other maritime items - what the heck - I have no idea why I bought them. My guess is it was a little bit of nostalgia for the island home I came from. Who knows? Not me, that's for sure!
I also have several other items I bought during the daily deals that I am ashamed to show you because they also break my rules. I have no idea what I'll do with them! But, I'm a true mini-believer who knows that some day, maybe not tomorrow, or next week, or next month, or next year, but some day - I will find a use for them!!
And, if you think that today's post is some kind of a stall to keep your mind off the fact that I didn't do any minis today - you're absolutely right. Didn't work though, did it??? *smile* However - I have plans to spend 4 hours tomorrow working on my Picture of Dorian Gray room box so tomorrow evening, I may actually have a progress report for you. Until then -- TTFN!!!
