WIP - Work In Progress


With Sorticulture just around the corner I decided to take a good long look at the mess I have in my back yard.  I just knew there were a few things I could tackle on a sunny, YES! SUNNY, day like today.  What a mess I found.

So, here's a look at the mess and what I found there!

Check out this mess!  Truck parts, scrap metal,
empty buckets, a car windshield, and a
garbage bag full of cans!  EEK!

I need to remove the old upholstery.  What do you think
I'm going to find under it? 
It's a bench seat from a 1951 Ford Pickup!

I got lucky!  Only a little bit of mouse stuff!  I'll let
it sit for a night to finish drying out what ever
junk was in the springs and batting.


A few years ago I made a flower bed out of an old mattress spring.  This one is telling me to do a similar piece.  It just fits.  SO!  If all goes pretty good,,, I'll have a completed piece to show you by the end of the week!

Cross your fingers!

Have a good one and thanks for stopping by!  Shell


  1. hi, i tried to find your ETSY shop but was not able to.
    do you have a link?

    1. OOPS! I used to have one! SORRY! I remember taking it off and I was going to put a better link on and well,,, sorry!

      try this link: https://www.etsy.com/shop/ShelleyHolm

      You might have to cut and paste that web address. Sorry! I'm pretty bad at this end of stuff. Right now there's a couple clocks on there and a few parts. Let me know if you saw some thing you were interested in and it's not on etsy!

      Thanks so much for your time! Shelley

    2. Hi Rebecca! OKAY! I finally fixed my etsy link. You will find it down the right hand side under the pinterest button! Thanks for the nudge. I needed that! Shelley

  2. Can't wait to see what you do with that seat.

    1. Cross your fingers! I know I am! Have a great week Ramona!
