Loosing your mind in seconds ? or thirds ?

OK .. I can't say that this is me .. because "she" and Costco would sue most likely ?
But I can say this is the shed we have mooned over (well ... alright damn it .. "I" mooned over because of being deprived a playhouse as a child .. this will do) and yes .. it looks rather cheesy in this photo op .. I'm really posting to test changes in colour and font here and I'm about ready to scream .. so why not post instead and scream over the internet ?
Can you hear me ? in frozen Canuck land ? ... So anyways they have these neat light panels at the top of the roof (what the heck do they call that part ? eve ? nah .. something like that ?) .. so a sad event will happen .. I won't have my vines over this baby's roof because we will finally see the light in the shed without a light bulb in fact .. how cool is that .. and yes .. I intend to cheese it up further by putting goofy window boxes under those tiny cute windows that actually open !!! ... and ... I have my own dedicated door .. I'm totally impressed with myself : )
OK .. back to reality now .. I still have a rink in the back garden and we still have to SEE the quotes for the deck .. I'm tying a HUGE pillow to my back so when I fall over after the sticker shock to a new deck .. well I won't crack my head on the ice at least ?
Meanwhile .. you may admire my playhouse : ) or should I say planthouse .. does that interfere with greenhouse ?

Don't forget cute little tieback curtains on those windows, and I think the window boxes will be wonderful!!! I want one too......

I love your little 'planthouse' it's great! I read down farther and saw your Helleborus. They do have their moments don't they? ;-) Good luck on your deck - I designed ours and my hubby built it so at least we didn't have to go through the contractor part of it. I'm gonna have to mark your blog so I can come back for more craziness - it's been fun!

Well, the shed looks nice- so do your new colors! I think it's the people in the pic that look cheesy! Sorry I haven't been able to 'pick' lately on blotanical- I can't seem to navigate the picks area without error pages- just know that I'm picking in spirit!

Joy, I love it! And what exactly is wrong with hanging window boxes under the windows? How can you not? And the windows open?!?! Incredible!

Get the shed! It's the coolest one I've ever seen. It'll be your own miniature playhouse that will make up for childhood deprivations...LOL...

I want one of this too. Ops, where will put it then? It's damn crowded over here already. Will it be ok somewhere in the living room? Huh, I guess I need some sleep ...

Looks like a great Play house, Oh, I mean garden shed... :-)

cindee said...

That is a great garden shed! I never had a playhouse either! How rude is that? I always wanted one too.(-:

I have always wanted a "potting shed!" I have such a tiny backyard, so there is no way I can, but I dream about one. It would be my play house. I dream about how I would "decorate" it--but I would use it too..and yes, it would have window boxes, with a little path leading to the door...oh Joy I could go on and on about this topic! :)

That is one cute playhouse, and I think it can be called that because you will be playing in the dirt in and around the playhouse right????
I'd love a playhouse too, so when you get yours all up and assembled you can help me, okay!!!

Hi Lynn .. girl you can visit me over the web and I will pour a glass of pink lemonade for you (by the time this is all finished we should have some almost decent weather) and yes to the cute curtains too ! LOL

J&R .. I can't take all that talk about the "C" .. every store I go in the smell of chocolate is every where.. jeez !!!! Yes ! I would love those tree photos so I will drop you a line : )

Hello RainGardener (neat name .. wish I had thought of mine a little more!).. My poor Hellebore will spring to life eventually and look great .. but for now it is scary ..that must have been wonderful to design it and have hubby build it : ) We can't do that darn it .. so the "scream" will be heard around the earth that day .. then I'll just get up off the ground and get on with it .. hubby just takes it all on board ? LOL

Tessa .. Thanks ! Blot has been on and off for days like this now .. Stuart must have a major migraine with trying to get it back on line the right way .. but once we are straight , we have our own dedicated server, things should be much better .. hang in girl !

Hi Martha .. how is the list making & packing coming girl ? WE bought the shed last week and it is stored at the Handyman's place .. I will breath easier once it is up and running and YES !! little plastic panes slide up for added air flow .. how cool is that ? LOL .. I'm a kid yet again girl : )

blossom you need sleep ! .. we don't have a big back garden but this will fit snugged up to the deck and we don't have a garage so we really do need a decent shed .. can't wait for it !

Skeeter .. we both KNOW we mean PLAYHOUSE girl !! LOL

Cindee .. that was "wude" not having a playhouse either ? we should start a club right ? "The Moon, The Stars, and The Playhouse Club !!

MT ! come on over girl and you too can share the playhouse .. yes !! I want a little path dedicated to my dedicated door ! LOL .. this is one of the best garden projects, that doesn't involve plants, I have had : )

Linda .. you should have one of these too is RIGHT ! You have loads of room in your garden to have one girl .. and you have such a good imagination the plants you would pot up around it would be great !

Oh I'd love my very own shed too. You are going to have so much fun getting it organised. Don't forget a nice potting bench and a comfy chair for contemplation!

GardenJoy4Me said...

Hi EG ..I bet you would be just the right interior design person to organize (my part of the shed!). It always amazes me how some people have just the right touch with tiny spaces : ) I'll try to take pictures when it is all done up !
