FINDERS KEEPERS!

It goes a little something like this............ Mr.OTM (for those of you who don't know what that means....it's for Mr. Olde Tyme Marketplace) came home Friday night and said "hop in the truck and let's go for a ride!"...well okie dokie....let's see where is he gonna take me.....to a romantic dinner with wine and candlelight?????....perhaps to a jewerly store and just let me go crazy......how about to a picnic by the lake and gaze into each others eyes............to the beach so we can count the stars at night??????...........OR TO THE NEXT ROAD OVER SO WE CAN HUNT FOR ROCKS FOR THE FLOWER BED!! yippee!! So we start this rock hunt come up empty on our first road.We thought that would be a great spot because they are doing alot of building over there. On to the next road......ONE MINUTE in and I yell STOP!!!!!!!!! Laying in the ditch is this FANTASTIC PICKET GATE WITH IRON HARDWARE!!!! Now here is the REALLY COOL PART.......just that VERY morning I was telling Russ that I would like to go to Lowes that weekend and get a piece if fencing or something to help hide the garbage can and the propane tank. They both sit right at the back door and are U.....G.....G.....G.....L.....Y! So fast forward to that VERY EVENING and I find this gate.....FOR FREE!!!! Oh....I almost forgot..there was also a killer rock sitting right next to it so we grabbed that too. That was our only rock find for the whole night BUT I was totally jazzed up about that gate! Life is just full of surprises! Now I know that God has ALOT more important things to do than to worry about how to cover up my hideous propane tank and garbage can BUT this just goes to show you it must have been pretty bad because he answered my prayers. Now, I didn't actually pray about help to cover all that stuff up but the shop is always in my prayers and in this case he figured that needed done ASAP!! (By the way....Mr. OTM created a BIG ole PRIM Star to hang on it!!...promise I will take a pic!) Here's to answered prayers!!

That fence is GREAT!! I love how your husband knows what you like and want. Isn't it great when they ask you to do something that they know you will like, but yet they enjoy it too!?! What a great find!! Can't wait to see the star.

Have a terrific Tuesday!

How lucky are you!!! That is just too funny. It looks great and I can't wait to see it with the star. My DH and family were rock picking the other day. We farm so many of the fields have way too many rocks. We filled up the back of our Gator 3 times. I had to keep a few for my beds as well. So if your in my neck of the woods, I'll fix you right up with rocks. Take care.
