I was inspired to write this entry after ogling www.mathastewartliving.com. Yes, I admit it. Don't worry: I never follow any of her suggestions. Well, OK, except for the one about organizing the bathroom cupboard with a wire pull-out.
And a few crock pot recipes.
She has a blog, in which she explains how things work in her world. I was dazzled by some of her winterizing techniques. Check this out. This is how she bundles up her collection of concrete garden urns for the winter.
Martha, I am impressed by the...tautness of your burlap. Thanks for recommending that we sew our burlap with a sail needle. I am not surprised, of course, that you sew your own sails.
Clearly, if I had taken your advice, the recent snowstorm in our part of the world would not have blown my blue tarp off. When the storm lets up, I'll get back out there with the duct tape and make sure things are really battened down.
And, regardless of the size of her estate and the number of outbuildings included, I'll bet her garage does not have room for a dismantled barn and two cars in the midst of repairs.
I Googled "Martha Stewart snowplow", because I wanted to check out her blade. Guess what, she has a dog named "Snowplow", but appears to be without a blade attachment of any kind. Gotcha beat there, Babe.
We cannot compete with her wood pile. Check it out! A special, pre-made stacker, AND a nifty contraption that spaces the logs JUST SO, allowing for optimum air circulation
Ours suffered a slight mishap when the storm blew in, and has partially collapsed, burying the wheelbarrow. However, we have a handy rack for holding mauls and wedges...
We'll finish this episode of Hillbilly Highlife with a quiz. Any of our readers who can tell which hearth is mine, and which is Martha's will win a nifty wrapping paper organizing spindle. Mine, or Martha's?
