I found this old potting bench, broken apart, and brought it home. After rebuilding it, powerwashing it, sanding it, painting it, and re-sanding here it is. I sewed a burlap skirt, complete with stay-stitching, and applied it with upholstery tacks. I sorta like the hooks to open it. It is, of course, for sale at Vintage Market. I think it would make a great work station or even a kitchen island.
Also, I am going to Austin, Texas soon and will be perusing shops for wares and good finds. Do any of you have any recommendations for junking or anything else?

Every year, about this time, the wild blackberries on our land are ripened for picking. Some years I make preserves; other years most are given away.
Today brought only over a cup of berries. And of course, it's always the hottest days of summer that they are ready to be picked. I think I'll put some in vanilla yogurt and sprinkle some of my homemade granola on top.
