Today’s GPOD is from Cathy Gemkow of Stanwood, Washinton:

"Hello, I love to garden and create all kinds of different spaces in my yard. I have built with re-purposed wood, granite, fallen trees and just about anything I can find. I am an artist who loves to work with her hands."

The gazebo was built in 2006 with cedar branches from a winter storm.

This is the inside of the gazebo. The furniture is vintage from an estate sale and other items inside were bought cheap. I put in vintage stained glass for windows and a vintage working chandelier. Birds make homes here in the spring.
