Vintage Thingie Thursday




Taking it outside again this week, the weather was great today so I thought I would share some of our flowers at the same time. I honestly can't take credit for the awesome flowers, that is all Hubby's doings. HE LOVES THE FLOWER BEDS. I should do a post about them one of these days. He does such a good job taking care of the lawn, the rock garden, the flower beds and the veggie garden. :) Thought I would give him a little credit this week since it is Fathers Day this weekend. ALSO our 29th Wedding Anniversary. :) there are numbers and names underneath the rust on the milk cans too. They are on either side of our entry way to our screened in porch. These came from my Dad's Mothers Family Farm.

Your yard looks lovely, as do your flower beds and vintage goodies. I love to work in the yard too, but my husband does help me a lot. Happy VTT!

Oh, what pretty pictures! Tell Hubby he does a great job!

We had a milk can growing up that my mom painted (an ugly) blue - and someone stole it! She got another one (we lived in a dairy town) and chained it to the house!

Such pretty flowerbeds! Those giant milk cans remind me of my grandmother...she's had one on her front porch for as long as I can remember.

AND...I saw your nine patch blocks in the previous post...so cute!

The Thingie Thursday pics are awesome. I do so miss my flower beds and odd plantings in odd things(i.e. an old suitcase). Thanks for sharing DH's love of all things flowery.
P.S. your new project rocks! hugs, Finn

Lovely yard, and lucky you to have a hubby who likes to garden!
Milkcans make the bestest plant holder ever, and the more rusty, the better!
