Garden Conservatory

Tinker House
Have you seen this?
I just found Donna's blog yesterday when she started following me.
You'll find her over there on my blog roll now.
I was just blown away by this whimsical garden structure that she created in her garden from salvaged materials.
Donna's Blog is full of beauty.

Oh...I need this in my own backyard.
A lovely spot to nap.
And this is in her laundry room in the house. 
I'm fantasizing about potting benches lately and this one seems just about perfect.
Please go by Donna's blog to see lots more. 

I haven't forgotten that I promised to show my kitchen...but I decided to add some molding and am 
working on that today. I hope to show Monday at
Please join me then and link up your mix ups.

Of course tomorrow I'll have Open houses as usual....

Have a great Saturday...I'm off to go antique shopping with my best friend.
We are looking for a chandelier to hang in her big pecan tree out back over her patio.
I think I found just the one last week and I'm taking her there today to see it.

I'm hoping she loves it. I'll let you know.

THAT IS AMAZING!! I wish I could borrow it for the weekend and go hide with a bunch of great books, and get away for a day or two! So magical looking..going to go visit now. Thanks for sharing:)

I will definitely go visit Donna. Neat post, Nita! There is an awesome potting table in the Anthropologie store in Birmingham. It is painted with chippy green paint, has a shelf on bottom, and the top is covered in zinc. I want it so badly for my art studio, but it is expensive....

Love this so much!
And I have a chandelier handing inside my magnolia tree. Over a dining table. We have tea out there on cool afternoons!

Isn't that beautiful. We have several old windows and I hope some day my hubby will build a little potting shed out of them for me.

I thought places such as this only existed in my dreams, and old Victoria magazines...it's perfectly beautiful! I particularly love the old rusted gate that's propped up on the potting bench...the things I could do with that, great idea!
Off to drool in person at her blog....

I have seen it before and dream of one of my own.

Very pretty and some very creative ideas there. I will check it out when I have some time to take a good look.

The Tinker House is fabulous. I had thoughts of doing something like this myself - even saved my old french doors when I had an updated replacement installed. But, I've decided I just don't have the room for it. ENVY!
