I am definitely a totem addict, so I thought I'd show the latest two I've added to my gardens. Used an light shade for the birdbath top and a lamp base for the one with the cardinals.
I love them. I have been collecting stuff to try some totems soon. You have motivated to get going and do some!!
Did you glue the glass pebbles on to the plate under the cardinals? Or are they loose?
I really love the 1st one.
Oh my, I'm in love with that 1st one! It is dainty & great colors & that swan is precious!! My dad used to take me to Echo Park in Glendale when I was little & I loved the swans(real ones) I guess so much dad made me a swan glider & I used to have so much fun in it. I guess it got sold or given away when we went back to S.D. Still love swans tho!! That is by far prettiest birdbath I've ever seen!! TFS Jan
very beautiful the birds will think they are at the waldorf hotel love them both but especially the first one
The glass pieces are just laying in the bath part of both totems...that way I can wash them when they get dirty.
Those are stunning Both are great, but favor that first one a lot. Thanks for sharing
Marlene - thanks for taking the time to answer my question
Marlene, your totems are beautiful! I have put mine in the flower beds, but have not made any new ones. Thank you for sharing. Marylee
They are beautiful. I am envious that they are not in my gardens. lol
Your totems are so unique and beautiful. I'm envious . . . it seems the wind is always blowing here. I wouldn't dare put anything so fragile in the yard. Really wish I could though . . .
Christyjan....don't let the wind stop you! I have one birdbath that just tends to topple because I have hawks that drink there, so I put a piece of rebar in the ground and wired the birdbath to it...so far, so good!
Thanks everyone for the nice compliments!
Beautiful Totems. Once you start them--you get hooked. I love the dainty pieces you have chosen. They are lovely Jlily
Usually I do not comment on glass totems - I'll never disclose why. But I think SunnyCA sums it up perfectly: "Oh my, I'm in love with that 1st one! It is dainty & great colors & that swan is precious!!"
Yes, I really like the delicate appearance and the way the entire piece flows together.
Very, very nice.
You are back in business, Marlene! Your totems are always so pretty & you chose such wonderful glass pcs! I'm with the majority...that 1st one is exceptional! TFS! Jeanne S.
