Love the 2-pc angel totem in your flower pot! Am I seeing "sticky gum stuff" for glue? And happy to know that you've been "clowning around" in your spare time! TFS!

I used to work at a recycling depot...and was always checking the glass bin for treasure!!lol! I saw this nice orange busted up pc, and when I stacked it on the blue globe, it just looked like a head with a hat to me, then I had been trying different other pcs and came up with the ruffle look, so it dawned on me to have a clown, but he needed eyes, and then they showed up too, just had to cut the back parts off the eyes. They are glued together by that Power Epoxy(as seen on TV)so hopefully it holds. I also made this dangly to go by my pond, from little mirrors (glued back to back)I got from the dollar store.

Beautiful, I love them. My heart goes between totems and plate flowers. Although I am going in other directions because of this forum. You all have great ideas and it is a joy to see them all. Thanks for posting pics.

Did some more...I actually have boxes(Yes, plural!lol!) of pcs of totms, that I just can't seem to part with, that I haven't even touched/looked at on about a yr! But these have been on the "To Do List" for about a yr so glad to Finally be getting to them...these are about 12-14inces tall, and am thinking of building them some poles/towers/bases> to stand on so they will be about 2-3ft off the ground...

Oh my gosh! They are all wonderful!
I've been saving blue bottles for a bottle tree, but maybe I'll make totems instead.
