My husband is always doing something special for me. He saw this hay cart on Craigslist and knew I would love it. It is a small world because when he picked it up the guy selling it had worked with me years ago. The cart was in terrible condition. The boards were rotten and none of the bolts matched.
Always fixing things, my husband took it apart, sanded it, and repainted it.
It works like a charm. It is not only utilitarian, but pretty enough that I could use it as decoration.
I had a lot of questions about the painted rocks on my parent's hillside. It is their brand, the Diamond J Bar. You can't see the bar very well in this photo. When I was a kid every few years we would have to repaint the rocks. You needed to be careful because those rocks have no problem rolling to the bottom of the hill. It doesn't look that steep, but trust me it is.
