A Tool Shed and Dreams

my blogging voice is under construction...I have no idea how long it will take...
thank you for understanding...


My Garden shed or tool shed as I call it sits unpretentiously in the back yard. It bears a long history of solidarity as it was the first building placed here when my husband's parents purchased this land in 1970.


I have always loved it's mysterious  simplicity and charm... It is more than a thing to admire though as its handy storage ability rates right up there with its good looks...


One quiet afternoon this week I gave it a bit of a clean and then enjoyed a cup of hot peppermint tea while reading on the old sofa we put in there a few years ago...
                     children's artwork is splayed here brightly

It was a peaceful way to  spend an afternoon and I was reminded of how good it is to at times escape from life a little and unwind. 


with a good book, nature, solitude, and a  tool shed..


some day I think it would be fun to create a real oasis/ studio in here, but for now this little abode is a odd mish mash of this and that ...a place to dream, remember and hope.

  1. Your garden shed is charming, Lucy. A nice place to read, relax, and just dream. I especially love the children's drawings on the wall. Is there anything more special than a child's painting? Your hot peppermint tea sounds delightful.

  2. Oh, that tool shed!! I love the color...I love the plantings around it...I love that you put a sofa there...and I love the artwork!! What a perfect little escape from the everyday.

  3. I love this! I am hoping for something like this one day too!

  4. Wow!! I love your garden shed!! You have created such a special place to sit and unwind! Love it ♥ New Follower!
    Hugs, Jody

  5. I think it is special just the way it is. A bit of whimsy always attracts me and says, "Come in."


thank you and blessings for words from your heart...
