It started with a burlap skirt...

...but we will get to that later. :)

While I was working in my potting shed today I also decided to play
a little with my small cast iron bird thingy, a withering geranium and my
trusty camera.

I have had this cast iron piece for years and sometimes it just blends in with
everything else and gets "lost"...not today. I brought it out of hiding and
snapped a few photos.

I love how the beauty of the rust blends nicely with the pink flowers for a pretty picture...
 don't you?

This is what started it all...

 I have had this burlap laying around and had not figured out what to do with it yet
 until an *AHH HA* moment hit the other day
and I decided to use it to skirt my potting bench. I really like the way it looks.
I do have other work to do in this shed {ahem...actually it needs a LOT of work!},
but if I get the little bit done that I want to in a few days I just might show you!!
{only the part that gets done! lol}

 Keep your fingers crossed!! :)

The burlap looks great as a skirt, and I love the weathered birdies.

Love your cast iron birds. Such a beautiful contrast with the bright pink flowers. I also like your burlap fabric - I've never seen any like that before.

I love that burlap! Where did you find it with the script on it?
I also love your bird "thingy". I have one a little bigger then that and I have it outside and fill it with birdseed. I love to watch the birds! Your "thingy" is adorable. I love the new skirt.
