Spring Fling

azcactusflowerJanuary 6, 2011

grammacindy, a Spring Fling would be just the thing to get us all into the garden junk fever again.(not that we are ever totally out of it!heh!heh!heh!) If you can do it I think all of us would really look forward to it. Spring is not too far away to start thinking of what we want to put into our gardens. Sharing creations and inspirations with each other will make it twice as much fun. It will certainly give us all something to look forward to.I have had so much fun since discovering this forum.I am still looking at older posts with all the ideas all of you have come up with. Amazing! Makes me want to do THIS, and THAT and SOMETHING MORE!!! There is no such thing as being bored with this forum.

I agree I think a *spring fling* is a super idea. just think of all the totem, plate flowers,chimes and other goodies we can collect material for. Watch out thrift shops here we come.

A Spring Fling is the springtime version of Secret Santa! Same sort of guidelines....it's just that once a year "junk" swapping isn't enough for us hardcore junkers! Gramma Cindy mentioned it and I'm going to try and get her my "guidelines" this weekend since she's been good enough to volunteer to coordinate it!

Count me in too...I LOVED doing SS.. I had a blast picking out things to send and can't wait to use my new things this year, even though I'm going to have to start over from scratch with garden, landscaping, etc on the new lot. I dug up lots of hostas and cannas & buried them in containers to transplant in the Spring. Once we get moved next month, I have ALOT of planning/planting to do.

jensyen, granmmacindy is the coordinator for Spring Fling. She will compile a list of all the participants,then will send each one of us the name of the person we will be sending a gift to. When she posts the dates and is ready to hear from each participant, we will send her our mailing addres and a short list of things we like. For example, you might love dragonflies, things for totems,flowers, birds, turtles, squirrels, etc. That helps the person who receives your name to go shopping for things you like. They will then package the things up and send them to you. You will do the same for the person whose name you receive, you will shop for things they like and send them to them. It is a lot of fun! I hope I have explained things correctly. If I haven't, please someone correct me and reexplan things to our fellow junker. I think you will enjoy joining up with us.
