Oddities

Many things I do have an unusual touch.  It is me and I enjoy the freedom to be me.  My Dreaming Porch has things many people would not show but I am happy and comfortable with them.
The wood stove oven from my playhouse in the woods
a felt fish on a broken treadle sewing machine peddle
my broken aquarium
my re-purposed floor vent and metal table
another broken part of a sewing machine
Dad's antique cage with wood cookies, gourds and a solar light
an old rusty milk can with a tray of rocks and a candle
another view of my dry aquarium
second generation Scooby Doo...
I couldn't get rid of him
My deep freezer is here
with a box of toys
a metal tractor
and my forgotten mop bucket.

These are the things on my porch.

I love the beautiful shapes, unusual combinations and engaging vignettes really quite a lot.

Good morning, I love the eclectic look. There is always something interesting to see. Scooby-doo is cute. Happy Friday, have a great weekend!

My Mom always said "Waste Not, Want Not", and I love your porch - so undeniably you, original and just darn interesting.

Very homey and creative!
And no, you can't get rid of Scooby-Doo.

I love it all and these are my most favorite, the treadle, the other part of the sewing machine, the milk can, the tractor, and the stove. mike and frank of American pickers would buy all those from you. they use them to create art on the wall to sell in their store

Sandy said...

A comfortable porch with memories of your life. I love the convenience of having the freezer outside.

Oh goodness what a fun tour this was, love all your goodies. Scooby-Doo my daughter's most favorite of all time, and it's hard for me to keep any Scooby around here without a lock and key! Hehehe!

It's all art......art of the heart and soul. I have collections and treasure too that others probably wouldn't understand, but then they don't live inside my head. Love what you do and why. xoxo Oma Linda

I have many of the same odd things but they are scattered in 4 different buildings on the compound. I like that you don't care who sees them or what they think. I still worry about the back porch by the kitchen which everyone uses as a front entrance. Silly, I know.

I always enjoy my visits to your blog Gail ...
Certainly do not get rid of Scooby Doo, at the moment two of our grandchildren are avid watchers of Scooby Doo on TV - he's been around a few years now hasn't he!

All the best Jan

I would love to sit on your porch with you, drink sweet tea, and discuss life's oddities.
