“Bless the Lord, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits”
We have been doing more than our share of gardening over the past two weeks, as I am sure many of you have. And it’s totally worth it! Raise your hand if you have a garden and realize how much work it can be! Choosing flowers, planting, fertilizing and the list goes on and on! Well, in the midst of all of the weeding and watering last week, out of the clear blue sky, Butch announced that he was going to build a garden shed! Oh yes, you can imagine this girl’s excitement! I have seen so many cute ones that would complete our little haven! So who will build this garden shed, you might ask?
None other than my husband, also known to me as the “Renaissance man”. Besides being the best husband I could ever ask for, he is a singer, musician, songwriter, DIY’er…a very smart and creative guy with multiple talents! You might have noticed the two buildings in my garden posts, he built the Cape-Cod style one. Many folks think it is a guest house, but it is actually a storage building. We have often laughed that it looks like we have a compound, two detached buildings, a detached carport, and now a potential garden shed! What’s one more?!
We are only in the thinking process right now and he probably wouldn’t start until fall, but naturally I started looking for inspiration right away and can’t wait to get your input! Ours will be rustic, to go along with the fact that we live in the country with several acres behind our garden used as pasture. If you are wondering about our inside project, it is still on our radar, but nothing has happened so far. We are waiting on the contractor, because he is the best. Will keep you updated when the work begins. But for now, let’s look at these sheds that will undoubtedly be so much fun and add a little character to our garden!

…another view. The antique French doors jostled my memory. I have a set of antique doors that I purchased at least 38 years ago that I have never used. I think they will work!
Mary from Home Is Where the Boat Is has the most beautiful potting shed. It is perfect in every season, and she is definitely an inspiration for our shed…
…I recommend if you love potting and puttering to follow her lovely blog!
Certainly rustic with lots of windows!
