Hi Friends, I am here late again and had no time to post new pictures for ~ Garage Salen ~ which is being hosted by Debbie. You see I have been trying to keep the garden tidy and have been doing a lot of overtime. Which I am grateful to get with the states budget it is hard to accumulate some extra O.T. We picked up this treasure for the garden 3 weeks ago at a store called Urban Barn here in Ca.
The pattern of the bench is "Betsy Ross" from what I can tell from the information I picked up on the Internet. She is a late 19Th century cast iron bench.

She has great leg's and a lot of detailing on her. And she weighs a ton but I am glad we had found her. I'm sure she will like her new garden. Well thanks for stopping by And I do apologize for re posting the same item so soon. I just felt left out for not participating. Have a good week and hope you find some treasures this weekend if your hunting.............Julian
