Picture of My Garden Jewelry

flowers12December 19, 2011

I hope this doesn't bore anyone but I wanted to share with everyone the wonderful booth I got last weekend at a Christmas Fair. I was able to display my plate flowers right in a flower bed. It was a great hit with everyone and I sold all but 4 of my things. Being able to show different ways to use a totem or flower seems to interest people. I had a few on a trellis stand, in a flower pot, on the table with a plate holder and in the dirt. The weather warmed up around 11 to an unbelievable 70 and the sunshine was dazzling on the glass.

Looks like you had a great spot also! Glad you did well! We haven't had very nice weather lately & misty or rainy, mostly just enough to mess up my car & keep people from having yard sales. You can put the other 4 things in your garden & enjoy all your hard work! Jan

I was very surprised how many people told me they had never seen these totems or glass flowers before. I really thought there were a lot of people making them. Another item people asked about were bird feeders. Have any of you made bird feeders from glass? I made one using a blue wine bottle as the base so it went on a pole. We have acquired a lot of the blue bottles and I'm trying to think of how to use them.

Wow!! The Bottle Man is fantastic. His bottle trees are unbelievable. If only there was some other metal to use that didn't have to be welded. I don't think my hubby or I would want to buy that equipment at this stage in our lifes. I would love to find a way to make a bottle tree, I'm sure I'll come up with an idea. Thank you toomuchglass for the link.

flowers...type 'bottle tree' or 'blue bottles' in 'search box' ...there are some ideas for trees where you don't have to weld .... here's how I used a few on a fence by my garden shed & potting table:

Your flowers and totems are darling!

@toomuchglass: I am now inspired to cut down one of the evil cedar trees in my back two acres! I have a cut off oak tree stump I've been using for what few blue bottles I have, but it keeps growing!

Jeannespines, thank you so much for the link for bottle trees. They are awesome. I'm going to give it some real thought and effort so I can use up all my blue bottles. I'm slowly working at clearing out all the dead flowers from the summer garden. A bottle tree for the winter months will really brighten up the garden along with my pf and totems.
