Santa's Secret Shed

Santa's Secret Shed

Shhhhhh.  Don't tell my kids.  The other day I talked with Santa at the mall and he informed me he is bringing my little girl a play kitchen.  I'm so excited, she's going to love it! 

However, Santa was a bit concerned because the box is so big.  He was worried that with such a big box he may not be able to fit everything in his sleigh on Christmas Eve.  So, he asked if there was any possible way he could deliver the present early and hide it at our house until Christmas Eve when he'll put it under the tree. 

Yikes! At first I thought there was no possible way I'd be able to hide a present that large at our house.  WAIT!  Ding, ding!  I just remembered the new Lifetime shed that we built in our backyard.  It's an 8'x5' shed so it has plenty of room to hide a play kitchen box.  However, my son does likes to play in there sometimes and pretend it is his own little clubhouse.  Hmmm, that could pose a possible risk. 

Fortunately, Lifetime sheds feature holes in the door latch to accommodate a padlock!  So, when the kids were at school one day, Santa made his early delivery and I showed him where to store the big box in our Lifetime shed.  Now, the Christmas present is locked up tight so no curious little eyes can get an early peek.  (Plus, it helps protect the other valuables in the shed like our lawn mower etc. - which is a good answer if my son happens to ask why a lock suddenly appeared!)

We built the shed to store my husband's lawn equipment and it's his space to use as he pleases.  But, this month he'll have to share a little space with Santa. So glad we could help the jolly old man! Wink

Have you started composting?
For most of us in the Lifetime family, winter is on its way out. What does that mean? Time to start cooking compost! For those who dont know, Lifetime Products makes a Composter! (You can read all about it in my previous post.) The question was asked How do I separate my compost from my non-composted organic matter? Good question! First would be getting another composter. One composter would be for actually making compost in while the other would be for filling up. When youre done making compost in one, you can empty it and start using it as your filler and the other as your composter. Of course, this means buying two of our composters, which we wouldnt mind at all. ;) The second idea is what I do with my single Lifetime Composter at my house. I cant fill the thing - as soon as it gets full, the composting proces...
How to Get More Seating Around Your Patio Table
Are you planning a backyard picnic to celebrate the end of summer or upcoming Labor Day? Still trying to figure out where everyone can sit? If you're like me, you have a nice patio table and chair set, but it seems like I'm still always short just one or two chairsto be able to have everyone sit together. I could set up my Lifetime card table and folding chairs, but it feels awkward having two people dine by themselves away from the group. Well, here's a handy suggestion my mom shared with me that's the perfect solution to your seating dilemma. Typically, the chairs that come with a patio table are very comfy, but they are also usually very wide and feature arm rests. If you need to add a few extra seats to your patio table, simply use your Lifetime folding chairs instead of your bulky patio chairs and you'll have instant ex...
New Website Introducing our all-new BackyardsInc.com Website!
I love the autumn. The trees are changing colors, the heat of summer is gone. The garden is growing "cool weather crops" again.
