Garden vignette

sprout_wi(z4 WI)August 5, 2010

Here is a little garden vignette I am working on. The two frogs were freebies - from different sources. The ant on the table, the wrought iron table and chairs and the cat with the fiddle I got for half price. The ant is metal and the frogs and cat are resin. I painted all the animals with a faux-bronze spray paint to give them some continuity.

I like how the frogs seem to view the ant as 'lunch', while the cat plays dinner music.

I also have 10 metal stars which I plan to hang from the branches high over their heads, using fishing line. Very romantic setting, don't you think? (lol).

The stars will really complete the pic!! I love the wrought iron furniture & the cat is so cute- I want 1!! He's playing "Hey diddle the cat & the fiddle, the cow jumped over the moon, the 2 froggies sat & enjoyed the ant & tried to figure out who was wooing whom! (Well, I tried!) Jan

That is cute and looks fun to put together.

Can you put a mini speaker out there for the violin music?

I just love that! Those little resin statues are such fun. You've created an intriguing scene there! I like the way you painted them the same. That cat with the fiddle is really wonderful. I have a gnome playing the flute that serenades my others. Love your fat frogs. LOVE the little white table and chair set. Really cute!

That just brings a huge smile to my face! Like Jeanne, the first thing I thought of was "Froggy went a courtin'"...VERY creative and fun!

So adorable. When you were describing it I kept wondering how the heck a cat would look good in that situation....but it's a PERFECT fit! Nice work!
