Modernizing Antique Doorbells

Friends! First off let me start off by thanking you from the bottom of my heart for all the supportive comments you left me in the last post.

I had the luxury of having a broken hand and wrist, so I couldn't help out (it killed me). My kid, my neighbor and my husband jumped in to plant a new tree in our backyard - aren't they some good dudes, er what? Why do we need a new tree? Simple, to create more privacy. We have a rental on the side of our house READ MORE

Are you feeling hungry to get out in the yard on these warm spring days?
