Garden Totem Fever

mary2010(9 FL)August 1, 2010

I've new to the Garden Web and have become addicted to garden totems after reading all the great postings. I had to try my hand at it this week and here is a photo of three I created. I'm already planning what to make this week. Thanks for all the great inspiration.

Here is a link that might be useful:

Being new to this, I just realized my photos were not posting correctly. I will attempt to post them again. I apologize for the confusion. So glad there is posting help on this forum!!!

Those are awesome, I love the mix of colors. You're off to a great start. Glad you showed those, I'm trying to collect stuff for a totem but glass isn't working for me. The china/teapot ones are so nice.

Did you mean to post only two? I tried the link, but it didn't open for me. Would love to see the third one.

Well never mind about the third picture missing. When I opened your post I only saw two, then after I posted the third one turned up.

Looks great too!

Thank you everyone for the warm welcome and kind words of encouragement. It sounds like I've joined an amazing group of crafters. It's funny because I've never considered myself to be a crafty person. I'm looking forward to seeing everyone's beautiful creations. Can't wait to finish the next group so I can share pics. Happy "junkin" to everyone!

Well you really jumped in with both feet. Those are great! I love all the ceramic pieces you used, they are so colorful. I mostly do glass totem, but I'm saving for some pottery/ceramic ones. I'm glad you've joined the forum and thanks for sharing your delightful creations.

Welcome, mary2010! You are off to an awesome start! I love your teapot totems. The first is my favorite ... I love all those funky colors and designs. But I'd take any of the other two as gifts. lol You have an eye for great pieces and how to put them together. I'm looking forward to seeing more of your work!
