|Front side all trimmed out, just need|
the moon and a star.
|I must have done something right as both crosses managed to line up!|
The wind does move through quite readily with just these on the sides,
adding the moon and star on front should give us great ventilation.
NO trash smell in the Summer.
Annmarie and I spent all day Saturday at an auction. It had been a decade at least since we had been to one. We forgot that it is an all day event. We did manage to get a few great snags. We got two old cast iron irons (yes the kind you use to iron clothes) and a handle! Picked up a couple of beautiful cobalt blue Salt and Pepper shakers. I picked up four old leg traps for $9. These got me to thinking what to do with them (after Annmarie asked me what I was going to do with them). I am going to put nails on the outside of one side of the chicken coop and hang all the traps from them as decoration/warning to all the predators to stay away from my chickens. I bought 50 1943 steel pennies. Yep, totally unnecessary but I couldn't pass them up. I got three shovels for $5 each. Annmarie bought a cabbage slicing board (I don't know why, she doesn't like coleslaw or sauerkraut). She bought a manual crank old fashioned ice cream maker, but it had been added to a lot of four other boxes but the price was right at $2. We ended up getting some classic books in hardback and Sarah is going to read them. We got a cool rooster salt and pepper shaker, but the salt shaker was missing. I liked it anyway and am going to keep it. We ended up getting three more boxes of vases for $2 while I was paying our tab. I had to go back and give them more money. Good thing we were running out of room in the car!
