Welcome to our 1864 farmhouse…life is good!

barn sale find!

1...dust off an old metal tub sitting in the barn
2...hook up a fountain pump to a length of plastic tubing
3...add a vintage rainbarrel downspout and water

Put them all together and you have one happy girl!

And while old-fashioned and distressed isn't everyone's style,
I just love this fountain. There's something about taking a vintage item and giving it new life that appeals to me. I can hardly wait for the flowers around it to grow tall and to enjoy listening to the soothing sounds of cool water in the heat of summer.

I love it! Very cute and very clever! : )

Be sure to share more photos when the flowers have grown more please!

Perfect! I can picture it in the middle of summer already.

I unpacked my cookbooks (after almost three years in storage!) today and enjoyed looking through at the pictures from "our" photo shoot. I was one happy girl to get those cookbooks out and placed into my new kitchen!

I saw a picture of this on Andreas blog and came to visit. How cool. It will be gorgeous when the flowers grow up. Very clever.

I love your idea here, so adorable! And vintage and rusty has always been my fav style.
