She ain't heavy...she's my fountain

Look at this lovely old fountain...
isn't she just the sweetest?

I found her in St. Louis a few weeks ago.
She called to me from an alleyway amidst other concrete treasures.
I had to have her.

Who would think that she could make a grown man
cower in pain and agony?

And then be blamed (along with me)
for a week's worth of discomfort
...I'm just sayin...

Here's another back breaker from a couple of years ago...

What is it with the heavy stuff,
that just makes me swoon?

This little fella isn't quite so heavy
but he's definitely a "two hander".

Not too heavy,
but wouldn't want this concrete doorstop
landing on my tootsies.

And speaking of sweet husbands...
This is my Birthday clock,
wonder why he likes to remind me what time it is?
I've stopped counting Birthdays!

Love the detail.

And finally, an urn that sweet husband bought for me
from Pottery Barn.

When he first saw it he complained that there wasn't any way
EVER he was carrying that sucker out to the car.

But that was before my dear sweetheart
realized it wasn't heavy,
just made to look that way...

Oh, the joys of shopping,
old or new,
heavy or light.

But wouldn't trade my guy for anything...
not anything.

Thanks Gals!

Hope you're having a fun week!
I'm still waiting for the wallpaper I ordered to get in...

Thanks for letting me share this random post
to keep myself from storming the home decor store.

love ya,
