On The Level

I thought I'd be able to get this project done in a weekend.  Well, that didn't happen.  I discovered bricks are a pain in the neck to calculate, buy, haul out to the car and then into the back yard.  They are even more of a pain in the neck to get into the ground level.  And don't get me started on leveling sand....

There was a point mid way through this project when I even got whiny.  In my defense it was a really hot day, I found myself 3 bricks short, and the guy at Home Depot kept trying to sell me play sand when I asked for polymeric sand.

Anyway, here is is.  My grill had been standing in the grass for many years. It got to the point that the wheels were so sunk in, that it was almost impossible to move. But, no more.

Yes, I still need to trim the weed fabric.

I went out in the rain today to take these photos. Because I'm that kind of blogger. Ha.

The Gallery

My dad was in the Army and stationed in Korea from 1956 through 1959.  During that time he did some shppping and sent some of his purchases home as gifts to family.  He sent a silk embroidery piece and two tapestry pieces home to my grandmother.  Those pieces were placed safely in storage for all of these years, and recently ended up in my possession.

So, to Framestyles they went for framing. I picked them up last week and hung them in my dining room this afternoon. I really like that shop.  I can walk in with an idea in my head of what I want.  I tell them and they immediately understand and start pulling samples.

I put the new-to-me pictures on either side of the farmer painting I hauled back from a trip to China.  I love them.

(Sorry for the annoying logo, but I have been discovering my photos on a number of other blogs.  Good grief, like it is their house.)
