Breaking Ground

Here is my husband, breaking ground for his new two story garage. It's going to be huge! I guess it's the closet we're ever going to get to having our own barn. Monica will be so happy for me!

What I'm excited about is that everything that is in the garage connected to our house will go in his garage. This includes his 1965 Mustang, his 1988 Jeep Wrangler, and his woodworking tools. This means that I get my own garage! His and her garages; I like the sound of that! This will give me plenty of room to paint, make wreaths, have my own little potting shed, and a place to keep stuff that I find when I go thrifting.

Here is the latest thrifting find that lived in the garage for a few weeks.

It's a Hoosier Cabinet.

I'll tell you all about the Hoosier Cabinet in a later post. I know you're here to see if you won the giveaway.

See all of that grass? See that little machine that's supposed to cut layers of grass and roll it as it goes? It didn't work so well. Yes, it cut the grass, but rolling it into this cute little circle...not so much. So, Steve cut rectangles of grass, and we lifted them out of there. I knew I needed to add some strength training to my exercise routine, but not that way!

Last night I was so exhausted, I went to bed early. This morning I have a dentist appointment and a check up with my gynecologist. So, I'll hit the random number generator and be back later to announce the winner.

Have a great day!



  1. Love the cabinet...it's adorable!

  2. How great that you will have LOTS of work space once the second garage is built! The cabinet is a terrific find.

  3. Gives a whole new meaning to "his-n-hers" closets......don't ya just love having your own space!!??


  4. That lovely RED cabinet would look very nice in my sewing room. Just kidding! What a lucky find. I know you'll enjoy it for many years. It's beautiful!

  5. I think I'm gonna have a bad case of "garage-envy", Amanda - LOL! So lucky that you found a Hoosier - I'm looking for one to put in the Squash House kitchen! Yours is really a beauty!

  6. Amanda,

    That Hoosier Cabinet (which I don't know much about) is beautiful! Did you paint it? You found that at a garage sale???

  7. That Hoosier cabinet reminds me of one that was in my Aunt Bell's house. My mother kept it for years and then sold it. :-(
    His and hers garages sounds cool. When we moved and built this house, I got the bonus room over the garage and my husband has a workshop under the garage so we both have our own space. Let's see, did I imagine as a young bride that I would ever want so much space to myself one day. Probably not. LOL!
