Linky Party Modern Country Style

I love this pic of an Owl in our Owl House. Oh, and I love my Ghost Chairs. Still trying to decide. Do I sell, or do I keep? Can't decide. Modern Country Style, is doing a linky party. (I need to learn how to do the hyperlink with just the word, working on it). It is about defining your blog. Now, that I really need to do. So in definition, this blog is a way to show projects, and to shamelessly help promote, and start my great business: Atticroute66 on Ebay and Etsy. Link up. Let's see what everyone is blogging about.

More about Ghost Chairs

Love it.

Ghost Chair

Yay, best Goodwill find ever! 4 folding Ghost Chairs. Yay!! Now, to sell or use? That is the question. Made in Italy, possibly the Piretti Castelli Plia Chair. Sorry for the blurry Made in Italy pic. But hey -- look at the chairs. Need a good cleaning, and yes, they have a few scratches, but for the small price I paid, totally worth it.

Storage Dreaming

When cruising Apartment Therapy, they have the greatest stuff. I ran across this amazing storage pic. from their Small Cool Contest, the one below is from 2009. I love their small cool contest. Anyway, I love the storage and that it is hidden behind curtains. I wonder if I could do something similar in a garage? Yes, a garage. Small Cool Contest coming up., click on by.

Easy Above Ground Gardening

I am looking for an easy way to do an above ground garden. By easy, I mean not building one out of wood. I want it at least 12 inches deep and protected from the ground and ground squirrels underneath.

These 2 have caught my eye. Oh, and also semi reasonable in price.

Trough gardens. At my local farm store are about $75, each. Not bad and good looking.

This amazing wine barrel garden I found via Sunset Magazine, here:

This serves the Brown-Forman Corporation in Kentucky, where the executive chef Mark Williams serves over 300 employees daily. Check the article it is wonderful, and if you haven't check Sunset Magazine out, it had some great articles on gardens this month on the newsstand.

Dreaming of getting started. Hmmmmmm. Oh, here the barrels are about $35 each.

Which to choose?
