Garden Sieve Noticeboard Part 1

When we moved to our house, the shed was packed full of old rubbish ...but nestling among the debris was this old garden sieve

What could be a more fitting 

It's sat there for seven years, unused, lonely and forlorn
...virtually sobbing its little heart out... 
until I was suddenly seized with the idea that I could 
re-purpose it as a noticeboard.

Could it be a case of ugly duckling turned beautiful swan?

{Helped along with a LOT of loveliness,

And that, my friends, is what I will be doing this weekend.

Oh, and we're off for a baby-scan.
Will it be a girl or a boy. 
I think girl and Himself thinks boy. 
All bets start ....

Can't wait too see the result of your project! How exciting re the bubba! We have a scan Monday morning but hope it won't show the sex! Lol xox

Unknown said...


Looking forward to seeing the sieve re-purposes although I do love it exactly as it is.


Shelly Wildman said...

Can't wait to see the final result . . . on the garden sieve AND on the baby! ;)

What are you craving? Sweet or salty? I firmly believe that if you crave something sweet, it's a girl. Salty is a boy. I could tell you stories . . .

Looks like a gorgeous project underway!

Oh Sarah, I am horrible at guessing but whatever the sex is, I pray your little one is healthy.

For fun... I say, girl!

Gotta be a girl...I trust your "mother intuition." :)

{Bellamere Cottage} said...

Can't wait to see your finished project. I, too, have one in the planning phase. Better get to it, right?

Ahhhh... what an exciting day for you.... will be waiting to see the results. Have a daughter myself......full of joy, and a grandson......first boy in the family forever.... and love him to BITS.


Alison @ The Polohouse said...

Oh how exciting!
I remember those days like they were yesterday! Now my girl is 16 and my baby boy is 18!

Enjoy. Cherish. Relax!!!
I am thinking girl... just an instinctual gut reaction to your question!

You are blessed whatever the outcome. :)

Cannot wait to see what you will do with the sweet sieve.

Oh gorgeous garden sieve, neat work to repurpose it to anything. Congratulations on the baby, just found your blog, love it!! Pats to tummy, love Posie


I was pregnant in the age where you never new if you were having a boy or a girl. It was a lovely surprise after labor.

But, how nice to be able to plan accordingly.

I love your creative mind. Can't wait to see the finished product.


Unknown said...

Gotta be a girl..hope so...mmm..hope you both are happy and smiling and healthy!
