"What's In Store" Wednesday

Hi there - can't believe another "Wednesday" is here. Thought I'd share some simple lil' creations handmade by my oh-so-sweet "Papaw Ronald". He happened upon some old barn lumber - claimed it and these are just a few of the things he is turning it into. I think he does a great job to be in his late 70's and I admire him so much for the person he is and for the drive he has to keep on pluggin'. I've told y'all many times before - but I'll say it again - I'm so blessed to still have all four of my precious grandparents. I love 'em dearly.

This is a planter box filled with pretty flowers...



A sweet lil' bench perfect for a front porch...



And a great shelving piece - perfect for plants and pots or many other of your favorite treasures.



Everybody have a blessed day! Create something special.

Cathy

You are truly lucky to have your grandparents still with you. I have never known mine. But I did have the luxury of a couple that "adopted" us as their grandchildren. And then of course my husbands grandmother while she was still with us. My children are lucky to have both sets! I try to make them realize that everyday! Love all of your wooden furniture. I am sure it was made with love! Have a wonderful day!

You are one very fortunate lady!! I am so proud of any person in their 70s that has the health and the stamina to keep on creating. I think each piece he built and you added your artistic touch to, is beautiful! Happy Wednesday!
