my idea...

doodys(9)April 25, 2011

This is something I thought up one night when I couldn't sleep.I used an old rusty barrel ring,chicken wire,little pitcher I got from dump,plus made these paper flowers.Got a board from my DH and wood burned the saying on it...Added a crystal drop to pitcher to mimic a water drop plus used lace off of a slip my mother had(passed since 2005.This will stay on my back porch plus got curtains hung out there so no problem with them getting wet.

A bicycle wheel would work with the chicken wire too!
I have a couple of those.
Love the little sign!

What a nice remembrance of your mom! The pic on the watering can, the lace slip piece & sign & roses & the heart(looks like a little purse) A lovely way to remember her! TFS Jan

Looks like you're doing something "productive" when you can't sleep! LOL! This generates some new ideas for GJers...I like the nona's bicycle wheel one, too! TFS! Jeanne S.

That is WONDERFUL. I will add it to our GJ Misc Inspiration album. I couldn't believe those flowers are made from paper!
I love this idea. Wish my brain would work when I can't sleep!

hugs, Karen
