Coi Pond waterfall

This is an updated pic of our coi pond. Hubby has been working on the waterfall for it. It is still a work in progress! He is still playing with it! Right now it has probably 150 fish in it! They are babies, but there are catfish, sun perch, 1 gar looking fish, and I think 1 bass. My girls rescued them from the big pond when they were digging it deeper. Now that it is done and filling up nicely, I think it is time for them to be transfered back to their new home! I need to upload the pics of what the pond looks like now!

Antique Church Pew

Found this on craigslist! Antique Church pew! It needs to be worked on and touch up and probably painted again, but I love it! There are even bible holders in the back! I have wanted one of these for so long! Just seems so strange my dreams are coming true, starting with this house!

My neighbor gave me the cute lil spinning wheel! I love it!

This lil guy scared me to death! I almost stepped on him while trying to take the pic!

Antique Hay Rake !!!

OMGosh! I have wanted one of these for a long time, but they have always been out of my price range. Just for fun one day, I was on ebay and did a search.... and found this one! Right here in Tx! It was only about an hour and 1/2 away from us! And get this... only $99! OMG!!! I just knew someone was going to snatch it away last minute! But no one did! Hubby went and picked it up for me while I was at work! See the cute fence behind it? Hubby made that out of some old poles that were left here on the property and bought a couple of landscape timbers and concrete. So this project only cost a lil under $10! woo hoo! Hubby added the skull and rope!

Huge Hibiscus plant!

I just had to show this flower off! My neighbor gave me a cutting of it and it has gotten huge! I took a pic of it with my hand, just so you can see how big it is!

Some of my antiques I have on my porch!

I need to do some fall decorating! I can't wait!

This is an antique wire basket! Hubby finally hung it for me!

This is my antique hay rake! It is pointy!

This is my antique watering can that I brought home on the plane from PA.! And I love the lil ladderback chair!

Antique chicken feeder & waterer! I love them!

Antique water pump water fountain and a duck! :)

I can't remember if I shared these pics with ya or not, but here goes! My hubby made this water pump a working waterfountain! I LOVE it!!! He used an old water hose and spray painted it black to match and a galvanized bucket some rocks and a pump!

And look who came to visit us!!! This is just a wild duck that literally flew in our yard while my hubby was outside!

Looks like he really likes his new "pond"! LOL We haven't seen him again since this day. He stayed all day! Even as we walked in and out of the house! We miss him!

Firecracker Annie! Available!
