Rabbit and Trowel...

Today I spruced up the back patio a bit...

(click photos to enlarge)

This rabbit coat rack has been hanging there
waiting to be dressed up....



I love to pick up old garden tools
while I am out treasure hunting...


I thought this was the perfect place to hang them...


I love the worn off aqua paint on this one...


wall pockets also follow me home often....


this chippy white one is a favorite...


and well...
a wall pocket is meant to be filled...


The Kwanzan Cherry is in full bloom
and made a perfect filler...


as far as flowering trees go,
this is hands down a favorite...

the soft ruffled pink petals
take my breath away...
every time!


Today I am joining...

and

Thanks for visiting me today,

Bella, this is a sweet way to store those vintage garden tools. I have a few that I keep in a wooden tool box on my potting bench, but I like the idea of hanging them to show off the charm of these pieces. Love that sweet rabbit coat rack. It's the perfect solution. ~ Sarah

This is beautiful! Thank you for sharing this on Fresh-Cut Friday! I don't think that I have ever seen any thing like it. So delicate against the antique trowel. Love it!
Thank you for following too. I am already a follower of your blog. :)

Bella, this is an amazing vignette! I really like it! I love wall pockets, and I agree that wall pockets should be filled!

Hello Bella, Love your post. I have done it, I bought some rose bushes and I have planted them, I ended up planting them in the back garden where they will get plenty of sun and if they turn out as good as the photos I will take some and share them I am so looking forward to my first roses and it's because I visit you and see so much beauty I had to try and have a wee bit of my own thank you for all your lovely posts Bella I love to visit

Love & Hugs Dawn xx
