This week we are really excited about getting outside to work in the garden at The Plum Tree. I have placed my order for new concrete statuary, there are a lot of new pieces available this year that I am really excited about as well as some new stains we are trying out.

Joy has been busy planting some very unusual containers with some beautiful succulents and she is getting our outdoor bunkhouse ready as well.

After tomorrow, we will have our very own greenhouse in the garden ~ be sure to come by and take a look while Joy creates her outdoor magic.

Steampunk...what the heck is that you might ask, it's different things to different people. To me it means a complimentary mix of found items such as gears, knobs, iron, wood, or any material which is disposed of today. It is thinking out of the box, honoring the past. It is a beautiful Victorian ruffled blouse covered by tux and tails. Or soft velvet skirt with worn out surveyors boots. It is a beautiful long necklace with parts and pieces of old furniture hardware, watches, glasses, keys and beads. It is an era when people worked hard, made things last & had an appreciation for the craftsmanship. Steampunk is industrial but not unlike any piece of antique furniture...built to last.

Aha! Now I know what my style is (or at least what it WOULD be if hubby would allow it!)... steampunk. I like that!

You actually used the word Steampunk on your site. I'm so proud. I may shed a tear. ;-) The greenhouse is wonderful and I can't wait to have fun!! Joy
