I join our lovely hosts, Susan at Between Naps on the Porch
Mary at Little Red House for Mosaic Monday…
Thank you, ladies!
Last Spring I showed you this..
I think I asked you to guess what it was, but I don’t think I ever showed the end result.
I have received 100’s of emails dying to know..(not)
Click to enlarge pictures..
The last picture shows with the final ledge added to the top.
The first bench was from Ikea, and even though I preserved it every year, it collapsed this year.
I will be looking for one like it in the spring..in the meantime the wicker one had to suffice..
We put a trellis to soften the front, and by next summer, the plants will have filled in, I hope!
So that’s my Outdoor Shower and changing area. It was a big help this summer. When we walked up from the beach, no sand in the house. And even in the mornings, nothing like a warm outdoor shower! There’s an outlet so you can blow dry your hair, and a light so it can still be used at night..The plastic bins slide under the bench, so the towels stay dry..Outdoor showers are very common here.
For my Mosaic..
Soup..Lto R Butternut, Split Pea, Trio of Soups, Chicken orzo..
Just a little Merchandise this week…
I don’t know about you, but when I buy things at the end of the season and pack them away, they are new to me. Sometimes I even forget that I bought it! Oh no, I know none of you do that..:)
So last fall the Pfaltzgraff Clearance Center was closing…not the outlet, even better..
I got a few more of these for 1.24
A couple of these covered acorn bowls for 2.00
And this Fall colored sugar and creamer total .96
I also got these at CTS for 1.99..they are very delicate…great to serve soup..
This larger green acorn for 3.00
Merchandise Monday is closed for this week. Hope to be able to get out for a shopping fix this week!
A little treat ….chocolate and caramel apples
I haven’t made candy apples in ages…. My friend Susan did a post on her caramel apples, and she gives her recipe…hop over and look..She’s a professional photographer, so you are in for a treat..
I just took Granny Smiths, scrubbed them well, dipped them in melted chocolate. Chill.
Melt caramels in the micro wave, add a tiny bit of milk.
Drizzle over the apple, then add toasted chopped PECANS..hear that BJ?? :)
In my tummy..delicious! And didn’t cost 5.00 each like Mrs. Prindables…so easy too!
Thanks for visiting..
See you Wednesday…
