New Potting Bench

Friday, April 20, 2012


This is a very short post because it's been a long and very busy day.  Tomorrow is our community yard sale - need I say more!   I've been sorting, pricing, displaying -- all day.      In addition, the youth from our church are having a bake sale here during the yard sale, so we have been receiving yummy goodies all day and this evening pricing them for tomorrow's sale.  


I did want to take a few minutes to post some pictures of my new potting bench.  It is made from an old door with chicken  wire in the top door panels.  I wish I could take credit for the design and building, but I did purchase it from a local Lancaster County craftsman.  

I purchased a potting bench from the same gentleman several years ago, but I fell in love with this new style he was making from old doors.  So .  .  .  I decided I would sell my other one at the yard sale and replace it with this one! 


I'll close out today with a little verse I recently discovered by Helen Steiner Rice.   Have a great Saturday!

The tiny petal
of a tiny flower
that grew from a tiny pod . . .
Is the miracle
and the mystery
Of all creation and God!


Today's post was linked at French Country Cottage for Feathered Nest Friday.

  7. HI Doreen, love this. You have done such a good job on this potting bench. I love it when two pieces of wood come together and marry and make a great new piece. It is a pretty color too.
