~The Sycamore Bench~

Mrs. Shecky escaped yesterday. The husb came home so the chains were released from me with Mr. Murray and he became the caretaker instead of me for a few hours. On my escape I went for a wonderful walk in my friend’s neighborhood. She led me to this tree and it was just beautiful with…

~A New Year~

It is time to welcome the New Year in and hopefully this year will be a lot brighter than the last. It sure was a hectic mess. The pandemic seems never ending so I am determined to continue to do my part and pull up a seat at home, wear a mask when out, and…

~Work Comforts~

Every room has a comfort zone here at Sheckyville. It has been a standard since I had my first apartment to have a spot or two to just flop in. Furniture makes that happen and normally a corner of the room will nook it up a few notches for that comfortable feeling. Putting out special…

~The Grandparents Room~

It has been one heck of a past few weeks with changing a couple of rooms around and getting more storage and craft space, but it has been accomplished. Moving the work desk to another area to keep the ugly out of sight has left space for a bedroom originally planned and a great place…

~Messy~

Well it’s not only kind of messy, it’s a real mess messy. Things are getting repainted and I am adding texture to the walls so this is my pull up a seat spot for the next couple of weeks. I keep having words with the painters about not pushing my desk into me while I…

~Kind Of Cute~

Here’s Witch Green Thumb. She comes out once a year and pulls up a seat anywhere she deems fitting. She’s done with her flying days but she still gets around and can have some attitude. You can kind of see that here with her giving me the stink eye. She wasn’t going to move over…

~Swinging & Singing~

Pull up a seat, swing and sing. This oak has been determined to be between 200-300 years old and has been registered so we love it. Most of the big oaks on the property are at least that age and they are the perfect trees to sit under and relax for awhile. Robust, strong, and…

~Mr. Creepy Pulls Up A Seat~

Via his homestead in the Tuff Shed, Mr. Creepy has arrived on his new seasonal chair. If you recall The Pine Throne post, we had to cut a tree down on the property and I had the guys make a seat for upcoming garden travelers. Mr. Creepy has decided it is his for the season…

~The Beer Garden Crew~

Sometimes taking a walk around the gardens is worthy. I noticed a few things today. This guy decided to pull up a seat and grab a beer right on top of the moss and stein. Gotta love a sloppy gnome. Here’s a fellow getting off work and heading toward the beer gardens. He’s trouble, I…

~Vinyl Memories In Check~

After the material on this bench went kaput, it was time to not only update it but give it some weather proofing material. Getting tired of taking cushions off every night and then putting them back on in the morning, prompted the lazy in me for another material type for the outdoors. So against everything…

~Bench At The Old Man Tree~

This little bench was found under some brush at the bottom of the yard. So it got some cleaning and a new spot for the lizard to pull up a seat. It is always a hike to get here and there on this property so when this was found it had to go where I…

~Lounge Seating~

The mini housing estates are over in this direction on the property and this lounge is a planned spot for pulling up a seat while working on them. I’ve had it for centuries it seems and it is all chipped and worn, but for some reason I can’t get rid of it. This part, as…

~Wicker Seating~

~Someone is sitting in the shade today…that would be me. ~ Me

~The Roundabout Bench~

On the pathway down the hill is this little roundabout. We put the bench there for those long walks back down from the hill above. The birds like to hang out in the trees and scuffle on the ground for food. It is a good spot to sit and just listen. Dig the dirt and…

~The Pine Throne~

Another place to pull up a seat for the fairies and gnomes. It is too sticky for humans but it will work just fine. We had to cut a pine down *sigh*. It was just in the wrong place for the electricity and the winds were due to blow it down. It was also to…

~The Bench At Hummingbird Oak~

This is one of the original built in benches on this property. There are a couple of spots like this under some of the Oaks to just sit and take in the shade. The hummingbirds like this particular tree I guess because it is secured and they know I feed them. I have to stand…
