Our Long Weekend Wrap-up...

Hi Vintage Lovers,

Just thought I would stop by and give you an up-date with the happenings over the weekend. We had a long weekend here so it was fantastic to finish off some jobs, spend some time out in the garden as well as some relaxing time.
We were getting a little frustrated with our front door after six months of  having two door locks and jamming keys just to answer the front door, so we decided to down tools in the kitchen and sort out the problem.
So we removed the new lockwood lock completely and replaced the old original door lock with a reproduction lock that use the skeleton keys. I am rather smitten over (I love my old keys) the new lock and we have had so many comments on our big old key on our key rings.

The next job is to have a screen door made to match the old original one.

We found some old roofing iron at a salvage yard, perfect for the entertaining area. The old sheets of  corrugated iron will be used to line the back wall of the area and hang old and vintage tools and implements from it.
I think that will set the area off fantastically.

We also bought an old gate over the weekend to use as our front driveway gate. The gates that are there are falling to bits so when we came across this one in a local second-hand shop, we couldn't resist it. That will be next weekend's job.

Have a fabulous week.
