OLD RUGGED CROSS






















No ya'll I haven't  found Jesus (but for those who have, more power to you), I just wanted to show off my garden wall project. For years I've looked up at that wall with the cross and said Kevin, you gotta get some clay pots up there. Well, some coffee did the trick. Regarding the religious symbol, it's been in family for centuries and the law of the land is it must stay in the family. So there it hangs.

Kevin, I LOVE this wall. It looks like an abandoned church in some faraway country. I would love to hear to the story on the cross.

that's a lot of pots...you must have had a lot of coffee!

I am glad you had to leave the cross as it is most fitting

Kevin, from you I would expect no less than pots with a turquoise glaze! They look great!

Kevin,I love your blog; found it about a month ago. The pots are a great addition to the wall and cross.
By the way, how do they fit those great wooden glasses? Can't bend the earpiece!

Sarah, Helen, and dear Mark, thank you. Maybe someday I'll get over my blue period.
Kathy, welcome, so glad you dropped by. Regarding the glasses I'm not sure how they fit the eye glasses, but they do fit quite well.

That wall went from bleak to a real focal point. Everything is perfect--colors, textures, and there is even a lightly surreal quality to the wall, which I suppose was the effect you were aiming at.

Kevin,
So what are you telling us? That those are “Coffee Pots”?, lol. OK, OK! I know it’s a bad joke, lol. But your wall is outstanding. I am in agreement with Sarah and I feel you have captured an aged yet timeless quality with this installment. I too also would like to hear the story behind the cross. – gary

I love the cross (and pots). It reminds me of one of those lovely Californian missions. I have quite a few religious icons picked up on travels about the house - although I have cut back since a friend said my home was like a trip to Lourdes.

Wow....this is absolutely gorgeous....love it! The coffee where I live doesn't do that to me....wish it did. I too love the cross...(and Jesus)...would love to hear the story too. Love your blog.

Mr. Road to P. and Mr. Gary, thank you for the kind words. I'm afraid the only thing surreal was me on that tall ladder, drilling holes at my age.
Janet, you obviously don't need coffee so don't start!

Louise, you are right about the Ca. Mission, thats why I hung the cross where I did. Religious icons can be a touchy thing, I never take them too serious.

Hi Patty, welcome to Hf, K. Thanks for the kind words. My coffee of choice is Trader Joe's the cheapest they make in a giant tin can. It is my drug of choice.

Now I am inspired to hang my wrought iron pot hanger that's been sitting on the ground for a couple of years!!

I love it! Looks fantastic. I have crosses all over the wall in my bathroom arranged much like this- instead of the pots they are all crosses- it is on the wall that the toilet is on- my brother has named it the potty alter. nice. I love the look and how you did it.

Oh...missed this post some how. I love all the pots. Won't they look great when all the green starts overflowing and going down the wall! It will be another great spot in your garden.
