Seconds and Inches

It started out as a beautiful morning. A crisp fall day in WNY....perfect day to take a car for a ride.

The last ride you take before putting your baby away for the winter. You know....the one you dry with the leaf blower...

Then some guy thinks he can roll thru the stop sign and ruins your whole day.

Bright side....Coulda been worse. Nobody hurt. Nobody dead.

5 Years

I can't believe it's been 5 years since The Storm!

Remember this tree?

Thought we were gonna lose it. Here's what she's like today

And heres a couple of trees that didn't make it... But live on down at the marina thanks to Carvings For A Cause, which helped to fund Re-Tree WNY

I ran to Valu and picked up a can of Rustoleum spray... A hammered finish paint in bronze ....

Updates on when it dries.

At Least I'm Not Buying Shoes

I've got a little case of Estate Sale Bug......Happens every year at this time. So I was digging yesterday and I found these plant stands. At least that's what they're going to be when I'm done with them. They look like stands that they use at funeral parlors, don't they? Anyway, I'm going to use them outside since my flowers seem to grow best when they're up off the patio and I like a little height interest. I'm thinking I could maybe use them inside too, Christmas time maybe? wrap them in tulle and stuff lights in the middle?...oooooo, that would look good on the front porch. I dunno.. 

I do know they need to be painted.....but what color? I was originally thinking green. Then maybe red. Black is the safe color. But then I thought some bizzaro color....a funky yellow or a purple. Or a combination of colors....maybe the scrolly's a different color than the straights. 

This is going to require some thought. I wanted to paint them today because its so nice out, and I'd have them done for the holidays, but I don't want to make a rushed decision.

Although.......I could repaint if I didn't like the results. Its only spray paint.
