Vintage Ladder LOVE




We always are attracted to old ladders. They are fun and very versatile to decorate with for the imaginative person. Probably surprisingly to many of you though they are one of the items we get the most "What do people want those old things for??" questions, when they see them leaning against the side of my house. Thought I would show you a few of my favourite....things to do with ladders of all shapes and sizes.

  13. When I originally left a comment I appear to have clicked on the -Notify me when new comments are added- checkbox and now whenever a comment is added I recieve four emails with the same comment.

    Perhaps there is a means you can remove me from that service?
    Cheers!
