Old hardware and farm supply stores are as much fun as antique shops and flea markets, in my book. Since we needed a new shovel, Galen broke ours a few weeks ago taking out the lirope and a tree stump in the back yard, we decided to go to Yoder's Farm and Garden Supply store in Grifton rather than Lowes. After all, it's a ride in the country and lunch at the dutch pantry.
You can find everything from hammers and nails to kerosene lamps to rubber boots and shoes, to kitchen towels and utensils, birdseed, bird feeders, flower pots and garden tools. We picked up a shovel and a few other things, and then had lunch in the restaurant. Did I mention homemade pies?
On another note ~ I made a bird seed wreath. I have been seeing these a lot on other blogs and also on facebook and thought I would give it a try. It's so easy!
And here it is, hanging on the picket fence in the back yard. We love feeding the birds at Mourning Dove Cottage.
Enjoy your day!
