I bought this stained glass lamp shade at a garage sale, and the table base at a different sale. I bought a solar rope light and coiled it around a clear glass vase, and put it under the lamp shade. (Note the solar collector at the left base of the stand.) I tied the shade to the base with green twine, so that it wouldn't blow off.

This is my garden wagon. I had seen a similar one near a hardware store that was used to advertise the hardware store; it was smaller and used with seasonal items to advertisement purposes. I loved it and my husband took a picture of it and built me a larger version for Christmas 2006. It is built of cedar and we used clear varnish for protection purposes. It sits in my front yard as a focal point in the yard.


I put a big red ribbon on the wagon wheel and a Christmas stocking on the edge of it. A black kerosene lantern on a black shepherd hook is nearby to light the wagon.

I will use it for seasonal purposes, holidays. I will use pots and plastic window boxes for flowers in it.

I love to use old primitive looking things that I find in my garden. This was found on the side of the road and I thought it looked like a flower, so I added it to my garden and throughout the summer, I started placing little flowers around it.

Garden picks to stick in your plants and flowers that are planted in pots. Watch them seem to fly when the wind blows.

Make a great addition to your patio or front porch with this decorated planting pot! I used a regular black color plastic pot, attached a variety of buttons around the top with a hot glue-gun for a neat way to add color to the pot.

Make a mushroom cap out of concrete poured into a small plastic bowl, dried and cover it will broken plate "tiles" and grout! Pour concrete into a plastic ice tea cup and make the stem.


Let dry, remove plastic cup, seal with glue and water, cover with tiles.

I am doing my patio with red, white, and blue. I am making a stencil from cardboard out of stars and spray painting my stepping stones in the appropriate colors. I think it adds a little bit of America to my back yard.

In the dollar store there are foot high thin wrought iron plant holders, (to lean plants on) some have wire flowers on them, instead of putting them in a flower pot, I made small fences in my garden with them.

Remember those garden decorations from a few years ago of a lady bending over, showing lacy bloomers? I'm looking for a free pattern or at least a picture of one.

This is not the Lacy Bloomers Sign that you are looking for, but a lady's backside in a flowered dress. If you go to www.thewinfieldcollection.com/ and type in the search window "Backside Lady", you will find the lady I have described above.

I am sure I have a sign just like what you are describing. I will take a picture of it and you can let me know if that is the one.

Photo Description
This is my potting shed that is mostly made from re-purposed items along with my arbor and my wooden gazebo with the homemade bird house on top. I really enjoy creating me spaces and using and re-purposing old items.This is not all of my very busy cluttered yard, just a few of my spaces.

My husband and I thought we would make gardening more fun by having a Wizard of Oz theme. Our favorite is the tin man, made with various "junk" from around the house like an old teakettle, trash can and funnel. This year we are planning an Alice in Wonderland Theme.
