I started writing this and it occurred to me that I'm not sure I've
ever actually said my hubby's name on this blog!!
This is Rog, short for Roger.
I call him Love or
Lovey, or Lovekins or Love of my Life or Sweet Cakes
or some other ridiculously mushy name I can think of:)
Rog and I often talk about how we would have been best friends
when we were little. He loved building card houses,
and I loved making Barbie
beds out of shoe boxes:) and we both loved what we call
I'm not sure how to describe "cool stuff" but it's just stuff
that we find cool that maybe other people might find
not so cool??
Doing what we do with houses and all, we've come across some really
cool stuff. I love how Rog will bring home things from our houses
that he rescues because he knows I would love them.
Like these huge rusty nails:)
I have no idea what they were used for, but they were in a pile at our
Via Baja property and now they are all happy and snuggled
together in this wooden bowl from Target:)
And check out this perfectly washed out and rusty pulley thingy
that is used on double hung windows.
Rog found this cool thing in the garage of our Coronado property.
And what's not to love about rusty old pencil sharpeners?
One came from our Grove property and the other came
from Via Baja.
"The average pencil is seven inches long, with just
half inch eraser-
in case you thought optimism was dead."
More Via Baja goodies:)
The coolest metal basket and rusty bucket.
Then there's this adorable little thing.
I found this in the garage of one of the historic houses
we did in AZ. Even after scrubbing it, it still
has a hint of oil smell from the old bits and screws and
garage stuff that was inside it.
I don't mind it. I imagine some sweet old man with
crinkly hands opening and closing those little
drawers looking for just the right little screw for his project:)
It houses my baubles now.
And that my friends, is today's lesson in
what Rog and I like to call
