OK, secret project REVEALED
(my flowerpots, my dog, my studio steps!)
Well, much ado about nothing, right? or maybe just very little!
Big deal to me, though.
The door into the studio had these poky little concrete steps. The usual rise on a step is about 7 inches, the top step here was 12, and DANG! You should see people stretch to get up into the studio....the wife wanted it corrected, and I was like "SURE! Steps....but how about making it BIG, with a bench to hold flowers!".
SO, our carpenter Roger came over and we measured and he made it happen. Right away I had to stop at the farm stand up around the corner (isn't it cute?) to get purple flowers etc. to fill the flower pots I made Saturday while Roger was building the steps. How cool is that, making your own flower pots to go on your own steps at your own studio....well, 2 flower pots. I got a dozen mixed red flower pots free on the curb the other day, how useful was THAT?
The railing isn't attached yet and there will be square stone pavers at the base, so I'll get a photo of that next week, with the flowers all over. But this shows you MY EXCITING PROJECT of the week....
THE BEFORE: note, handmade sculpture of a pig and pot saying GARY RITH POTTERY.
Roger says "measure once, cut twice"
Super cute farmstand up around the corner. I had to get a bunch of flowers to go on my new steps.
New flower pots by me, same old dog.
I am not much of a gardener. But I don't mess up pansies much.... have a great weekend!

Gorgeous! It's so welcoming, you'll have them lined up outside.
Isn't it amazing how a project like this can make a big difference in curb appeal? It creates a completely new experience when entering your studio.
I love it! Pansies are cheerful and indestructible.
That is definitely more surprise than I expected! Yay for your new studio entrance...very inviting and delightful! Safer too!
Nice! That's a great improvement. I'm sure you'll have many happy days out on that bench taking a little break.
VERY nice! And I love that you can walk to a farmstand and buy flowers.
A very sweet welcome spot!
Wonderful project! And such perfect photos, though I love the dog--and the pansies.
Wonderful!! So much more welcoming and friendly. Very nice, Gary!
Looking very nice indeed! Sweet Nook in the wisteria.
Isn't Spring wonderful?
Same old dog. Hahaha!
