Give me a hand!

mosswitchJune 28, 2012

I dug up this old leather glove in the garden. It must have come in one of the loads of the city's leaf compost we get each year. It already had a hole in the palm so I made it a little bigger, filled the glove with potting soil and planted it.

Nice idea! Looks like a welding glove. Love it....
I have been wanting to make cement hands with latex
gloves, but I procrastinate!

Someone 'left' you a 'lefty' glove & you 'left' it out in your garden! Now that was a 'right' smart move! (you've heard that saying, 'right?' " "The right half of the brain controls the left half of the body. This means that only left handed people are in their right mind." LOL! TFS! 'Right-fine idea!!!' Jeanne S.

I love the glove with the plants growing--but you could put a "hand tool" in the hand. Everyone can always use a "helping hand". That is pretty "handy". Enjoy! Jlily
