Bakers Rack decorated for Thanksgiving/Fall w/Garden Junk

jeannespinesNovember 7, 2010

A beautiful day in Iowa (low 60's) after a cold snap for awhile...so I got my baker's rack fixed up for the holidays!

Here's a full view:

The top rack is birdhse made by DH...has a big opening cause it's usually on the porch with small burlap bags of prairie seed...decided to feed the squirrels/mice...the old crock I got at TS someone painted owl...it's starting to peel...should last one more winter...corked the top:

2nd shelf is recycled wood box holding old crock & pine branches & cones & a bit of Curly Willow that I gathered today:

Enamelware that I use for GJ in my gardens ...had a mini garden in pan last yr & the coffeepot sits by my garden shed...the rusty iron is a planter plate from old farm equip...one in pan & one under coffeepot:

Watering can on bottom shelf...& an old teakettle got for 75 cts this yr...bargain $$$...love it for watering!

Gardening is slowly down quickly...so hope you enjoyed this beautiful day, too! TFlookin'. Jeanne S.

I was looking all over for an owl! Ha! it's painted on the pottery jug! Love the star & gourds & are those the feed bags for the mice & squirrels, do they grab them & run off & open them or bite through them? Love the enamel pan arrangement, that's my favorite!! Jan

Very pretty, Jeanne! But you are lucky you have all those pine boughs you can use. I love the enamelware and old watering can. You sure have a good eye for putting these displays together!

I love it Jeanne..
I just hope that you didn't get too much snow cover on it over the weekend that you can't see it..
I do miss my gardens as we travel now..
But I have been working on somethings..
