- Cecile's Country Garden
- I'm a Canadian now residing in Sunny Arizona since 2002. Although I've been a city girl all of my life, I've always loved the country and the laid back life it offers. My love of the Outdoors, Animals,and Gardening comes from my mom Cecile, who loved her home in the country, but sadly passed away in 2005. I promised her I would grow a garden in her name, And I finally did, five years later. One of my best memories of her is how much she loved her garden. The glow on her face when she would show me something new, always creating a life with things she loved. She loved all animals. She taught me simplicity, to enjoy the small things, and see beauty in everything. Today I find myself doing the same things she did in her garden and in life. This blog was created to keep track of my projects and adventures. They may not all be successes, but my goal is to remain unintimidated by whatever engages my curiosity. I want to share this adventure with those who can appreciate the small things, the trial and errors, the simplicity in it all, but mostly,what my mom knew how to do best,just have FUN! *This blog is dedicated to her*

Another Person's Trash is My Treasure
This is just awesome! I was lucky enough to snatch this huge coop/dog house for free on Craigslist this morning! It was so big it barely fit in the truck. It had an additional extended roof with balcony but had to be left behind because there was no room :(
It took several people to help Tim get it up there.
Besides being weathered some, it has great bones and is very solid. I already have a project lined up! I'm thinking some sanding, a good trim with a vibrant color, maybe with some log wood trimming....hmmmm decisions decisions.
I will definitely post the "After" picture once I'm done :)
I love finding stuff like this out of the blue. Keeps me creative and happy.
And NO I will NOT keep it, I cannot have anymore chickens.
