A little bit of sun = a lot of projects to be completed...

So today such a wonderful surprise!  2 days in a row for that big yellow ball in the sky to grace us with its presence.  I started the morning off with this list of all the things that I HAD to accomplish for my upcoming barn sale that is less than 2 weeks away.  I have a ton of ideas for how I want everything to come together this year.  I of course have to change EVERYTHING from last year.  But...

once I got out to the Barn my mom (Pam) was disecting an old spring mattress that we had salvaged from the coast.  After figuring out what her plans were for the rusty thing I grabbed my pliers and went to town uncoiling the springs from the frame.

About 45 minutes later we separated the coils from the frame.  We then took the frame to the garden where we had mounted posts and wired the frame to the post.  The coils will be used for another project soon to come.

Hopefully in the next several weeks Pam's Oregon Sugar Snap peas will have a run at the frame.  All in all I really liked how it turned out but I got to work doubly hard tomorrow to get some more changes done to the barn and a few more things checked off my list of MUST DO list. 


  1. What an adorable idea for the sugar peas! Hope you get a lot done while the sun is shining!


  2. I'm really sad that it was so short lived. I had so much more on my to-do list. But isn't that always the way it goes?


Thank you for commenting! I love to hear from you!
