Something so unexpected that you even surprised yourself?
That’s what happened to me when I saw this large pink vintage doll carriage frame at the dump.
I swear I heard it calling my name…
I didn’t even think about what I was going to do with it. Honestly, I didn’t even care.
I know full well that some people will think I’m crazy for rescuing what was left of this carriage. But one person’s joy is another’s person’s yuck. lol. And I’m perfectly OK with that.
So I embraced my joy without questioning it, or rationalizing it, or adultifying it, and I brought this pretty home. The only thing I knew for sure was that this pink carriage was staying as is.
And then what to do with it just kinda fell into place.
I found this plastic bin in my greenhouse and it fit perfectly inside the doll carriage.
I needed to add some supports at the bottom to fill in a gap under the plastic bin. I just sawed a couple of pieces of wood from our stash.
See how it fits so nice and snug.
I added 3 large pots of purply/blue pansies, and some sweet alyssum all around the edge.
Here it is almost finished, but I can’t decide what to do next.
I really want to do something with the plastic bin to dress it up, and to hide the wood supports. I have a few ideas, but I’d love some suggestions. I hope to finish it up next weekend.
So what do you think? What would you do? And don’t dare say you’d take it back to the dump. lol.
Mother Nature is the best designer.
Thanks so much for reading and until next time… Think Pink and…
Embrace your Joy!
