Remember when I purchased two old gears with my birthday money last month? I got them from my friend, Dana. Dana and her daughter own and operate West Tischer Cottage, a fabulous occasional shop in Duluth, Minnesota. West Tischer Cottage sells vintage, upcycled and repurposed items as well as painted furniture. Well, when I went to pick up my gears, I fell in love with all of Dana's outdoor junk vignettes, and returned last night with my camera. This old fence vignette is situated on one of her garage walls. Dana was apologetic about some of the flowers in her gardens. She is on the road much of the summer picking great junk for her shop, and they can get neglected. This perennial flower bed is so fun with an old gate, hoe, pump, and milk can. Even though it's not Halloween, this "great witch" plasma cut shovel head is at home in her summer bed. My garden stepladder seems very ordinary when Dana has the steps to an old "Everwear" playground slide in her garden!!! I love it. The windmill adds so much vertical interest to an already very interesting garden. How about this pig feeder planter of succulents? All very healthy and happy! This barn door bench is on Dana's deck. It holds a fun collection of hose nozzles, and other small rusty junk. I think this bird is a relative to my rusty crow! Dana purchased this hot air balloon from a metal artisan. She burns a candle inside it in the evening. The pergola is the perfect place to hang and display plants in unusual junky containers with pulleys, scales, and rusty hooks. A most unique plant stand! Another rusty metal vignette along the front wall of the house. All junk is neatly, and strategically, arranged in a bed of rocks. Some pieces from family farms are sentimental. I am so glad I got to share this special yard and gardens with you. Thanks Dana! Get Posts Delivered by Email:

Love spending time outside in your garden? I do, too, especially now that I have taken my DIY abilities to another level outdoors!
