About 10 years ago when H and I were traveling thru Pennsylvania, we found a buggy that we fell in love with. H took it apart so it would fit in our tow behind covered utility trailer and we hauled it back to New Mexico.
It has been a focal point in our front yard all these years and when we give someone directions to our home, we say it's the house with the pony buggy out front.
I don't keep a pillow in the seat all the time, but I laid my sheep one on the pillow JUST for the photo, he came back inside with me when I was done!
H and I were just sick when we saw what the harsh winter wind had done to the buggy and wondered if it could ever be put back together.
Would H be able to work his magic with just the parts that were left....or not?
|The before photo shows all he was left for H to work with.....the wheels (thank goodness) the undercarriage, and one end of the baby bed (the other end was destroyed)|
I think H did an awesome job of rebuilding our buggy....don't you!
We also made some cosmetic changes to the buggy......
H spray painted the umbrella frame black to match the buggy. The can can had topped the umbrella for several years, so I ordered in a black & white check tablecloth and H stapled it to the umbrella frame
I am so happy to see the buggy back together and sitting proudly in the front yard.
I can see her when I'm sitting on the front porch......
I always enjoy your visits so much, please stop by again soon!
