Pallets and Hydrangeas

We recently found 2 pallets laying along the shoreline at the lake.  How the heck would pallets get in the lake anyway?  Whatever....  Chablis and I made two trips and dragged them by hand to the lake house.  Believe me when I tell you those things were heavy.   We grabbed some leftover paint and this is what we did with one of them.  It is now propped up in front of the lake house.  I transplanted some flowers and once they fill in around it, I think it's going to look really nice.


And how about these beautiful hydrangeas?  My next door neighbor brought over a huge bouquet of them for us to enjoy.  I'm now letting them dry out.  Don't you just love dried flowers?

    1. We have been on the look out for a pallet so I was shocked to find 2 in the lake. Now if I could just find some at home. Who would think a pallet is so hard to find??

  7. Neat pallet sign! I love dried flowers too-- until they fall over and leave little "things" all over.

  8. Love what you did with the pallet, it's so in right now. You should sign up at home talk and share it! Love the hydrangeas too. I've never tried to dry them myself but I've seen them dried and love them. Hope all has been well in your world. Sorry I've been such a slacker on my visits these days. Have a great weekend :)

  10. Great idea for the pallet, Kim!
    Those hydrangeas will look wonderful when they dry....pretty much as they look fresh.
    Hope your holiday weekend is full of fun!
    Love to you.

  12. What a neat idea with the pallets! So creative! And hydrangeas are my favorite. I have a tree in my front yard but the bees and wasp won't let me get near the flowers! so I have to admire it from afar. :-)
