Love the green "thing" and your photos are fascinating and could certainly be used as a source of inspiration for some textile creation - I'll work on it!

I love the frog, Laura.....it has taken on that lovely verdi gris patina....I love that, although sometimes the taps in my bathroom have been known to take on that same look !!!!!

Nice day

Oh so do I ! I love the rust of course and the faded, chippy paint, doesn't get much better than that!

There's nothing like vintage garden accessories. I've never seen a frog like yours, nor that type of a claw (I've always called them 'diggers')! Thanks for the wonderful visuals!
Blessings,
Susie

Aren't these just the cutest. Eye candy, that's what I call just fun garden finds. Love the red handles. Beautiful blog, am glad to start following a fellow gardener

Oh me too!! That is my kind of eye candy!!!
Blessings!

Hi, dearest Laura - at the moment I am not fast enough for your postings! Wonderful pictures (I also like this stuff - but I don't have any idea what the green "thing" - "frog" - on the first photo is for...?!?) And I also like your posting about words!
So many thanks again, dear Laura!
Hugs, Traude

Isn't it amazing how simple everyday items such as these garden tools look more like art when their photographed. I love it!

You are so good - here I think I have to write all this text on my blog and you just post a couple of fantastic pictures that say it all - I love it. I have a "claw" I am going to post - you have inspired me!! I always enjoy my visits to 52 FLEA!
