TP- and Good Fences

Carmi has chosen
Disposable
for our theme this week.


Disposable things make bringing your lunch 
quite delicious.






Easy come, easy go.
Married one day
and carried away
the next.
Or are these lovely bride and groom
scarecrows
 still holding hands in Alabama?
I'll soon find out.




"We live in a world of many disposable things
but you are not one of them.
You are irreplaceable
one of a kind
and there will never be another you.
You are not disposable
and don't let anyone tell you differently."
Rae Smith



"Everything should be made as simple as possible
but not simpler."
Albert Einstein


Disposable items for a picnic are incredibly helpful, right?






Meet my disposable greenhouse #
It's been replaced.
With a much bigger one, complete with windows too.




Moving on to





Rustic birdhouse on a fence post!



We took a stroll along an avenue in Linden Hills,
and this particular place is one I dreamed of owning years ago.

I just worked a block away from here, 
and I imagined how sweet the walk would be.



The recent owners really made some changes
 and the house doesn't look anything like it used to.





But their wood carvings are a beautiful touch.




It used to have a wide opened porch, and now, well it's totally enclosed.





There used to be a white picket fence too.


Funny how some houses will speak to you.

"The home 
should be
the treasure chest 
of living."
Le Corbusier

Love that Rae Smith quote. And need to remember it. Some days I feel imminently disposable/dispensible.
Thank you.

Too many things are seen as disposable. Hopefully we can learn to cherish once again.

I think we shall have to give a disposable greenhouse a go.

Rustic carvings set off the fens very well.

Those are some weird scare crows. Reminds me of that movie Lars and the Real Girl.

That is a fence with character, Karen! I have houses that speak to me when I go by too.

Easy come easy goes does seem to be today's mantra Karen, such a shame because things made years ago were made to last!

Wooden birds on the fence are a very nice touch.

Thanks for sharing Karen

All picnic things should be disposable - food into tummies, gear into recycling!

That was a charming little fence with the birdhouse and little bird figures.

I'm glad humans aren't "disposable."
