Leather Hinges


Have your eyes locked on the Leather Hinges?


Mary Kistner, a mentor, said, "It's what we do with what we have."  No, I wouldn't have thought, EVER, of leather hinges.
.
Of course I contacted Penelope Bianchi, this is her garden, about her leather hinges.
.
Her man, adore that phrase & adore women gardeners who say it, has done many years of volunteer work in other countries.  He learned from them to use everything.
.
Thank you 'Her Man' & Penelope for widening my horizon, to see Leather Hinges.  Of course I can't wait to see these with more age on them.  
.
Garden & Be Well,    XO Tara

There should be a special sainthood for that class labeled 'Her Man'.  By the time 'SHE' calls he KNOWS whatever it is is impossible but he will do it, because he's 'Her Man'.

Leather hinges - that would be quite popular here in the outlaw-cowboy-biker southwest! Never thought of that.

Using what you have - yes! In cleaning up my own garden from the big freeze and drought, the contractor moved an ignored agave and numerous pups of that and other plants, that have new, prominent homes. I only have to buy a small number of new replacement plants!

If only I could have mined the granite bedrock before this house was built.

The wall with the partly open gate and inviting lantern inspires the first lines of several lovely scenarios. Beautiful

This term, I believe, is synonymous with (the now widely known term) "the Help."

That's a first for me. Look at the bright side no WD40.
