Wow it sure has been hot here in New England this week, and they say the next few days will bring no relief. I know others are having it worse than we are, so I will be grateful for our 90 degrees! Before you know it the leaves will be changing and the snow will be flying so I will savor each day for what it brings to us. I have a few new finds that I have turned into primitive yard decor so I thought I would share them with you. Best of all they were found items in our garage! The door and grape crusher were found up in the rafters and have been there according to hubby for a LONG time. He said he remembers asking his Mom what the crusher was when he was a little boy and he is ummm......58 so yeah it's old. haha. It has some great old green paint on the base and traces on the wheel! I put a plant in the bin and it is decorating the front of the house now along with a lot of other items. The door was the origninal door to the old outhouse on the property. When he pulled it down it was covered with mud wasp dirt... I ran like heck. lol But, I cleaned all that filth off it and I just LOVE the patina of it. The old green over the cream color paint is perfect in my eyes. I hung a twig wreath and the metal sconce holder which came with 3 glass vases in it and I replaced with the old clay pots. That was a yard sale bargain this past weekend for a dollar. I figure I can change the wreath and decor on the door with the seasons. We put the door leaning up against the side of the house where the driveway is. It was always a blah plain spot, so now it has a bit of charm. So, if you like this look don't overlook those old doors!
