If you happen to notice any peculiar bright yellow birds flying around the central coast area, chance is they stopped by the Retro Shack for a splash in the newly installed birdbath..........
It went like this. I was so excited last week when my search for a birdbath to complete the front garden of the Retro Beach Shack came to an end. I couldn't believe my eyes, this birdbath was perfect, definately, lovingly handmade , I could just imagine the looks of anticipation on the family's faces when dad unveiled her, complete with mother frog and her baby right smack in the middle of the bath. Turns out just like in the movies, the lovely old man had made the birdbath back in the 50's, him and his equally lovely wife were down sizing and had no need for the bird bath anymore, it was one of the last things left from the garage sale on the weekend. Arthur helped me load the birdbath into the back of my car, I gave them both a wave and drove off.
Yesterday I took the birdbath up to the Retro Shack, I gave it a good lick of paint, unsure as to what colour I should paint the mother and baby frog, the sailor suggested yellow, so I went with that.........
I had a left over concrete paver which came in handy to place the birdbath on so she is steady, and last I painted the mother and baby, I had to laugh!!!
So I went about watering the plants, then decided to put the sprinkler on.............
My hibiscus are blooming.
I painted and planted more retro pots. I just love the diamond cut one in the middle.
That looks better for now! I have a plan for the shed, it's essential to house all my bits and pieces, but it looks just so ugly. I am so excited I have my first holiday makers renting the Retro Shack for the long weekend. I'm hoping they have a fabulous stay.
Enjoy the rest of your weekend, I'm off sailing today.
PS. I AM HAVING A GIVEAWAY NEXT WEEK, SO STAY POSTED!
