My Place & Yours : That's nice, that's different, that's unusual

A new theme on Meet Me at Mikes- My Place and Yours. The Theme Queen for this week is Toni from Little Suitcase. Her theme is 'That's nice, that's different, that's unusual'
Our house has been renovated over the years so any strange things that may have been here are long gone now.
My daughter and I wandered around this morning and this is what we came up with..................

That's Nice.
I picked this chair up at a Clearing Sale a few years ago for $15. We had to hang around until dark as it was one of the last things Auctioned but I was determined to get it if it was reasonably priced. It is such a sweet little chair with a hidden surprise.

It has a potty under the seat! 


That's Different.

There is a very old fence post in the lawn next to the path not connected to anymore fence posts, just standing all alone.. Everyone has asked my Husband why he put it there but he really hasn't given us an answer yet. So what do people say when they see it, 'That's Different!'

That's Unusual.
My sweet babies. Axolotyls are the strangest creatures but so cute. These are my girls who are about 10 years old. Marvin the Male is hiding in the corner, camera shy I think, he's nearly 13. We have regular batches of babies who don't make it much further than just hatched.
So there you go, My Nice, Different and Unusual.

I love the blue wicker chair - elegant on the outside, noice surprise on the inside!

I think the potty pan is great - it would be impossible for my 2yo to throw that on around the house... And the fencepost - lovely - and quite the inspiration - may i do it in my backyard?

What a wonderfully quirky house ... I love your husband's addition of the lone fence post.
