Weekend Dump Finds

I hope your weekend was a good one. It was beautiful weather for us,
after a very rainy period. I bought  plants to plant in my large planters
and mulched more gardens. Now on to dump finds. This sweet church bird house.
That will end up in my garden.

It is hard to see the little pink bisque basket in the back but it is darling
The top comes off so you can put your treasures inside. It is old, on the bottom
It says Napco Boston. The little hand painted sign I wired to my plant pot very cute if I do say so

The mug is Johnson Brothers of England I soaked it and ran it through the dish washer
good as new. The sweet plant pot is made in Japan. I have a little plant in it, sitting
on the porch table very cute.

And last but not least 7 gardening magazines. I will read them and pass them on.
The best part of it all as always free!
I ache from the top of my head to the bottom of my feet. A nice shower and some Motrin should help. Have a great week.
The best way to get real enjoyment out of a garden is to put on a wide straw hat, hold a little trowel in one hand and a cool drink in the other, and tell the man where to dig.

Your finds at the "dump" always amaze me! i think you need to show us a photo of the dump so we can envision this incredible place. My idea of a dump is not someplace I would like to go! Linda

Stacy said...

Awesome finds!

I so envy your dump. I'm afraid I would be there all the time. The birdhouse is so are the other finds.
Have a nice day today...put your "feets" up.
