We're Back ! This Time with Photos !

mommyandme2September 11, 2011

Attached is a link to our garden junk photo bucket. There is a 4 page main album & 3 additional sub-albums. My youngest & I made aluminum flowers, glass plate flowers & steamer basket flowers. There are also 6 or 7 bottle bugs. The various bits of sculpture & pottery were created by my oldest. The bottle bird & armadillo were purchased. Feel free to ask questions. Looking forward to hearing from all of you!

Here are a few of our pictures

I can't even begin to tell you how cool your stuff is . How big is the space you decorated ? Is it a patio ? A fenced in yard ? It's sure inspiring :) Thank you for showing us !

Wow! You've really got quite the assortment of creations! I'd really like instructions on the tin flowers. I especially like the daisy type and the dahlia looking ones! Incredible!

Are you willing to share how to's?

Thanks for the compliments. We had a lot of fun putting it all together. I am currently living w/ my oldest dd & her family in a rental. Our "backyard" is a 8' by 36' fenced-in patio. All items that appear to be some form of pottery were made by my oldest dd. The boy with the aloe hair is quite large, almost 2 feet tall. The female, whom I call Matilda, is probably about 6" tall, is NOT a planter, but we love her anyway. I also love the birdbath with the piranha fish in it. No bird has ever dared come near it. The photos at the end of the main album & the entire mosaics album are projects we completed while living in CT. There, we had a deck & a backyard. When I moved, I gave many of those projects to my sisters. I brought the concrete leaves down here & placed them right next to our front door, but a very brazen thief stole all of them. I thought their outrageous weight would discourage potential thieves, but unfortunately, I was wrong. I'll post a tutorial on flower-making later. - Laura (& Sarah & Wendy)
