This site used to be such a joy to visit. I'm asking people to visit here again and share their projects and information. If you know any of the previous visitors, please help by contacting them.
I agree max, and I still come on a regular basis, but since I can't post pictures, I dont do much except respond. Since my web site was 'deleted' I can't even send folks there to see what I used to do.
I hope that it picks up soon....
We did have a GREAT thing going for us.
hi! I'm a wannabe crafter with a big box of stuff to use.
I lurk here a lot.
Nonacook, what about Photobucket for your pictures?
So pkponder.... What is your first/next project going to be. Show us pics of some of your "stuff". Maybe we can give you some ideas or some motivation.
I promise to do that soon! I have some cool looking faucets from the bathroom remodel and I need to decide what to do with them. I am drawn to wood and metal, but use lots of glass in the garden. We just finished a bud light blue bottle tree. Those labels were more difficult to remove when we first started!
We've lost a lot of folks over the past couple of years. Don't know if they lurk or not, but it's been pretty quiet around here. Quite a few of them went over to the Flea Market Gardening website and facebook page if you want to look there.
I know what you mean though....I love this site and I still check in often. Haven't been doing many projects lately, but I will have some to post soon.
Thanks for posting this thread!
Here is a picture of my "bottle cactus".....pkponder, yours is just lovely! Carol
Thanks Carol! I love yours too! What did you use for a topper? I'm trying to figure out how to secure a beautiful old fashioned hall light globe as my topper. It's got cut glass designs in it and the light just bounces off of it. I like the way you built a support for the bottom. My hubby cemented mine in the ground :-)
Max, did you build that glass table water feature?
Marlene, which facebook page are you referring to?
Pkponder, No I still really want the glass table water feature put haven't found the right glass top yet.
I'm still here. Doing more lurking than posting, but I check in every day.
I'm still checking in on a regular basis and I too which some of the folks were back. I have been doing a lot of mosaics and not really garden junk so I haven't been posting on this side much. Maybe when the weather gets better I'll be inspired. I too am interested as to how to look on FB. Kinda new to FB, just gave up and joined everyone else. Gotta admit it has been fun but I would like more info on crafty sites as that is my passion.
It is called Flea Market Gardening. They also have a website: fleamarketgardening.com. You'll see quite a few familiar faces there.

The only way I can post pictures is to upload them to my Photobucket account, copy the HTML link address and insert it into the message board.
Also when I do that I can submit more than 1 photo.
Are there other ways that work?
I just found this section of GW. What fun.
I think members tend to wander away. I wandered back today. I'm glad to see Nonacook here; do you know where Nigella went? I still make 'Nigella lights' using light globes and found a photo this week of her teapot hanging with a Christmas Cactus in it.
My photo is of a chia pet elephant that my nephew gave my mother more than 30 years ago. It now holds stones and holds a little brick wall together.
Here is a link that might be useful: Goodbye, Bottle Tree
I come back to se what you folks are making. I haven't made much since I moved to OK. 7mo ago. Lots of gettng used to in a new place.
Will hit lots of flea mt. and garage sales this summer so I can start making garden junk again. We have a huge yard to work with.:).
Hope everyone is having a good star of a new year.
