Raking It In

I'm a gardener and I'm a vintage lover. So I enjoy raking it in...translation: when I go pickin', I pick up old, vintage rake heads and garden tools. Can't help myself. That's just how it is.

Some I sell. Some I keep. Again, can't help myself. 

This past weekend, I picked up two rakes at a flea market. Took them home and washed off the surface dirt to find something interesting.

The unusually long rake had a marking on it...Brasil (Brazil).

May have to keep this one. Rakes are great hanging on a wall with the prongs used as hooks to hold items and to even slide wine glasses onto. And I am planning a rustic beverage center for my dining room. I think this rake will fit right in. Let's size it up.


Yep, this one is a keeper!

Love these photos...I think (hope) we still have some old rack heads from in the old I am really hoping hubby did not scrap them...I think they would be great to hang my small hand tools on in a potting shed :)

What a great idea. I will keep my eyes peeled for rake heads. Didn't know their value until you told me so. xo Jenny
