Lookie what I got!

What a cold week it has been here! I woke up this morning to temperatures around 15 degrees! I am not a fan of the cold weather AT ALL! It seems like I can't get warm enough to be comfortable! We still haven't seen any snow - unlike a lot of my blogger buddies out there! Over on Farmchick's blog, she has posted some great pictures of the kids sledding in her snowy fields! It looks like a lot of fun, but we don't anything like that here.

Anyways, enough complaining! I came out of the house on Saturday morning, went to get in my car and found these great old planters sitting next to my porch! My dear father in law had stopped by and brought these 4 old mule drawn planters!

He had come across these somewhere and knew we would love them. I couldn't believe it! I had always wanted one of these in my yard, among flowers in the garden, ya know . . . can't you picture it? Now I have 4! The handles are worn from years of use - so many memories with these! I have a fairly small yard so I am not going to have room for 4 so I will have to figure something out for a few of them. They may have to find new homes since I can't keep all of them. Sad I know but we already have an old set of wagon weels and an old red wagon so believe me when I tell you, there is no room for all of these!

Have a great week!
