Wandering an abandon garden

We live in a small town outside of Charlotte NC. Our small down town has it's original hardware store. The last of the original owners just passed away. He owned a beautiful home in the town. In his will he insisted that it be burnt down or bulldozed! It was bulldozed this week, to the sadness of many towns people. We went by the grounds Friday to have a look. We found that there is a beautiful garden that is also going to torn out to make room for condos. It has three Lilacs in bloom! I have two Lilacs that I have been nursing for years and only one bloom! I want to rescue these abandon Lilacs but dear hubby says know. I may go rescue some Tulips and Jonquils though! SHHH. So I brought some Lilacs home and did a photo shoot in fond memory of the lost to progress Lilacs.

Oh sweet lemonaid, as the saying goes

My dear sweet Ivy had her permit for three days when her dad had to call and tell me he had some lemons to deliver my way!!! She was more crushed than the car. I tried to put her at ease with the whole "no one got hurt! It can all be repaired. I'm not mad." she was very hard to console.
So when we went to talk Marc at the repair shop I told him I had a strange question for him. He perked up! He said I love strange questions. I told him of this file cabinet that I had in the most boring office beige. Could he , would he, spray it white while he had my car into be sprayed? Yes, he said YES! and so I now have this 30 drawer, Mustang white, cabinet! I added a touch of vintage wallpaper and maps to bring it some life!
That makes the drawer count...121.. in the studio....but who is counting? My husband, that's who!
Here is just a bit of eye candy from my camera this last weekend.....

Joy.......................all ways
