waste not want not!


If you remember my post last month about our
1950s telephone line conductors attached to the fallen oak tree


you'll see we found a useful way of preserving the past-
the conductors remain with the house and the front gate stays open!
(how long before Kit makes it her new sunbathing spot!)

A brilliant idea!!

I love to see things re-used instead of discarded and when it's something that's useful too it's an added bonus.

What a fab idea, and a stylish way of holding the gate open. Have you got any dates for vintage at the village hall next year yet?

As my old nan used to say "Waste not, want not"
Great bit of repurposing going on there.

That truly does have all the makings of a place for a cat to lie on a warm day, sunning itself and still being high enough up to peruse the world............. Lovely to see that you have been able to retain the ceramic thingies!

Clever idea Elaine, I hope the rest of the tree has been put aside as logs for the Winter....

Brilliant. By the way I keep reading your poem and find it incredibly moving. What a shame it is anonymous or do you know who wrote it?
