I played a bit in the garden today since the weather was just perfect! On Friday we headed to our camp, and prepared for Joe's lawn sale on Saturday ;o) Many of the camps for miles and miles participated, so Joe figured he would clean out the basement. We sold everything and it was quite a social event.
On Sunday, we had a BBQ and celebrated my niece Chelsea's 21st birthday. Oh to be that young again.
Back to Mackenzie Froggy. I used modge podge and some Mackenzie-Childs tissue paper. Then a coat of varnish. He is about 15 years old and was getting kind of rusty.
We made some bird houses and modge podged them also. Joe made the trellis, and I put the protective finish on it.
I know quite a few of you have white wicker furniture, so here are my freebies. A teacher that works with Joe offered it. We enjoyed it this weekend but our canvas awning won't completely protect it from the elements. I made new cushion covers, and we'll use it this summer. I don't want to ruin it, and will probably re-home it in August.
Hope my American friends enjoyed a safe Memorial Day weekend, and found a way to pay respects to our veterans - living and dead - who made the fun possible.
