A Potting Bench and It's A Boy......Or A Girl?


I've always thought that potting benches were just so functional. I've seen so many of them combining cute and useful. I garden a lot in the warm months and am always searching for my supplies. Now they are all in one convenient place! Yay! No more "where's the scissors?". My twine, pots, watering can, gloves, etc., all right here within easy reach. This shelf was in the laundry room when we first moved in and I never really knew what to do with it. My daughter helped me out by refreshing the tired white finish with a new coat of buttery yellow paint.




My favorite part is the soap and hand towel. I make a big mess of myself gardening and I really wanted to be able to wash up while I was still outside. Check out this soap. I have a friend that hand makes her own soaps and has quite a little business going. I just received my first shipment of soaps and they smell heavenly! Check out her online shop called Seven Willows. I chose this one called Kudzu & Gnats. It's topped with poppy seeds that look like little gnats, so clever and cute as a button.




In other news, our youngest has been on baby chick watch, for three weeks.



Today, the first chick hatched. Matt has a pair of bantams, and his hen's sitting on ten eggs. He's a proud papa!



When he saw that the first chick had hatched, he ran screaming into the house "my chicks are here!!!!!". He's so proud. Not sure if it's a he or a she just yet, but Matt's thrilled either way. Stay tuned, nine more to go......... how's your week so far?
