what can i say except that isn't she a real beauty?!?!?!
here it is in all of it's infinite glory! the porch wrapped in plastic! can anything be better? i think not!
the boots and shoes and mitts and gloves and work-clothes have now been moved from my tiny kitchen and that, in itself, is a glorious wonder!
one thing that we have learned since moving to Framboise Manor is that you gotta learn to make do. and that is what we are doing! the porch needs to be replaced and we will build an enclosed porch next fall. until then - this will just have to do. and i must say that i love it!
here is the side view (and my fingers!):
and the back:
it sure isn't much to look at and has become the talk of the town but hey - i will live with anything to get the coats and boots out of the kitchen!
not only does the porch take care of getting coats and boots out of the kitchen - it also holds our seeding tray! our seeding tray is a monster that jambaloney's stepdad built and gave to us. we have used it to start our seeds for several years now - last year using it sucked as it really is a monster and we had it in the tiny kitchen! but not this year - it now lives on the porch - woohoo!
i will post some inside pics of the porch as soon as it is tidied up - right now it looks like a bomb hit it as everything that has been laying around and getting underfoot is out there! we just need to sort, organize and then give everything a home - on the porch!
i told you that it would make MDR blush!
