Shabby Lane Shops Magazine is a lovely publication filled with inspiring stories, wonderful recipes, tea time articles, fun “do it yourself ” jewelry and craft projects, and home decorating,

The log is a jumble of lichens and Little blue and yellow whatevers, Purple strands and green softness Creeping all over its decay. It is home for more than many a Creature that loves the wretched And the crumbling. Creatures that We don’t want near our house. Admirers come from far and near To see what is new on the old. The log, an opportunity like most Opportunities, is odd in its presentation, Misinterpreted in its appearance, But forgiving with our appreciation And flourishing with our acceptance.
