It’s spring and this Acer is leafing now in a gorgeous bronze color….looks like the height of Autumn in USA HOWEVER this little beauty will go from orange to yellow to a bright GREEN as the summer comes- wild but is is a gorgeous thingSo Gardening is on my mind as I wait for the warm weather here in Ireland BUT you lads in Ohio are hopefully thinking Spring too. We have a solid cedar table/bench that will make a fantastic garden/potting shed- call us on May 1st if interested…if you are local -The table is available right now and we can have this table delivered for an additional fee. the bench costs $325.00
As I said solid cedar- sealed with multiple layers of polyurethane- made on a Vintage cast iron treadle sewing machine base
This is a piece of cast iron taken from the side of a very elaborate cast iron fireplace. It has been painted-as you can see it is a basket of fruit but if you look closely here – you can sort of see what might happen when this piece was attached to the lower side of the fireplace and a light hit it just right……the shadow on the wall actually looked like a dragon! The basket – resting on the table in this shot- was the head.
Victorian craftsmen were noted for their highly detailed and skilled work…but also for a bit of whimsy on the side/ LOL
So sorry to say I have failed to understand and complete major editing on a new website. I will probably have to find a website editor to help me in May so now have returned to the older web themeNo matter, just have to wait till I get the assistance of a more technical person than myself.
Pillers now added and a new black slate roof applied. The top is made from a roll of lead that is used in Ireland on roofs and window ledges John sculpted it for the final finish to the roof I find it looks lovely. A gate will be added sometime in the future to keep kids in their own yard. smile
We are in the process of upgrading our website/blog- looking forward to working a new brighter and more modern site – any ideas or suggestions appreciated- thanks Dee
