old rusty

old rusty, originally uploaded by Tifty's Art.

The sun was low in the west one evening last weekend and instead of holing up inside the house after dinner and all that I brought the sketchbook and watercolors out the the backyard patio table. Old rusty was parked right there in the grass, smilin, "Draw me! Draw me!" My boys had been pushing each other around in the yard in it earlier, laughing and making all kinds of noise. Raaawwwwwrrr!

Soon old rusty (and squeaky) will help move compost and bags of home improvement store garden soil to the garden spots.

I LOVE YOUR SHOE TREE!!! I tried to post a comment on it, but couldn't. What's amazing is how you take this rusty, old wheelbarrow and make it into something so lovely. You have a gift, girl.

Fy vad du ritar bra. Jag tycker jättemycket om din skottkärra. Kanske också för att jag längtar efter våren och få börja böka i trädgården. Hrä snöar det idag. Suck.

Ha en bra vecka! Kerstin
