Hanging Garden Globes
Here's one of my favorite garden junk projects ever: hanging glass globes. These beautiful glass pieces started life as table and swag lamps from the 60's or 70's, which were thrift store finds. I took them apart, then simply put them back together in a way that allowed them to hang from the shepherd's hooks. The smaller ones I attached to actual threaded lamp rods and capped them, so I could poke them into the ground wherever they seemed "needed." The blue one is my all-time favorite... I still have it, along with a different (larger) amber one and the small staked ones. I also have two globes-in-waiting - a deep amber iridescent one and a smooth dark green one, for which I just need to scavenge some additional hardware. I wish I still had that cool old crate in the background, and the tin "chimney" off to the left... I did manage to save the pretty hosta from the flood in 2008, along with many others, and replant them at our new place on higher ground.
