Pink Tricycles and a White Goat Cart


We had built up quite a pile of garden decor that needed repairs and or paint.    It was all hid around the side of the house that you can't really see,   (out of sight out of mind,  huh!)    H decided to clean out that side yard and either get rid of some stuff or fix it!


We decided to keep these tricycles and give them a fresh coat of paint.   I got to pick the color of paint and I thought pink would look good,   does that surprise anyone!     One of the trikes had lost a wheel and the other one needed the handle bars put back on.....H fixed all that in short order.


After the pink paint dried,   I found some baskets for each one of them.


I put two small glasses of water in the basket on this trike and cut some fresh flowers and dill from the back yard.   


We've had our goat cart for more than 10 years and the handle and front axle had fallen off.    H fixed that and gave it a fresh coat of white paint.    I needed a goat to pull my new cart,  and just happened to have one in the back yard!   


Before and after
 

There was more stuff stashed in our side yard,   so I'll be back soon to show you the progress!

  4. The tricycles are adorable! I would love to have one of those to use as a centerpiece for a big party, it would be so pretty with baskets on the front and back filled with flowers, or pretty napkins rolled around flatware! The goat cart could be used in the same way, but in my mind I immediately saw it filled with lovely fragrant Christmas greens! Thank you so much for sharing at Celebrate Your Story!
