Hello,

This site used to be such a joy to visit. I'm asking people to visit here again and share their projects and information. If you know any of the previous visitors, please help by contacting them.

Thanks much!

I agree max, and I still come on a regular basis, but since I can't post pictures, I dont do much except respond. Since my web site was 'deleted' I can't even send folks there to see what I used to do.
I hope that it picks up soon....
We did have a GREAT thing going for us.

hi! I'm a wannabe crafter with a big box of stuff to use.

I lurk here a lot.

Nonacook, what about Photobucket for your pictures?

So pkponder.... What is your first/next project going to be. Show us pics of some of your "stuff". Maybe we can give you some ideas or some motivation.

I promise to do that soon! I have some cool looking faucets from the bathroom remodel and I need to decide what to do with them. I am drawn to wood and metal, but use lots of glass in the garden. We just finished a bud light blue bottle tree. Those labels were more difficult to remove when we first started!

Hi Max~

We've lost a lot of folks over the past couple of years. Don't know if they lurk or not, but it's been pretty quiet around here. Quite a few of them went over to the Flea Market Gardening website and facebook page if you want to look there.

I know what you mean though....I love this site and I still check in often. Haven't been doing many projects lately, but I will have some to post soon.

Thanks for posting this thread!

Thanks Carol! I love yours too! What did you use for a topper? I'm trying to figure out how to secure a beautiful old fashioned hall light globe as my topper. It's got cut glass designs in it and the light just bounces off of it. I like the way you built a support for the bottom. My hubby cemented mine in the ground :-)

Max, did you build that glass table water feature?

Marlene, which facebook page are you referring to?

I'm still here. Doing more lurking than posting, but I check in every day.

RE: Inviting people to visit again

I'm still checking in on a regular basis and I too which some of the folks were back. I have been doing a lot of mosaics and not really garden junk so I haven't been posting on this side much. Maybe when the weather gets better I'll be inspired. I too am interested as to how to look on FB. Kinda new to FB, just gave up and joined everyone else. Gotta admit it has been fun but I would like more info on crafty sites as that is my passion.

It is called Flea Market Gardening. They also have a website: fleamarketgardening.com. You'll see quite a few familiar faces there.

plant stakes make from recycled plastic bottles
The only way I can post pictures is to upload them to my Photobucket account, copy the HTML link address and insert it into the message board.
Also when I do that I can submit more than 1 photo.
Are there other ways that work?
I just found this section of GW. What fun.

I think members tend to wander away. I wandered back today. I'm glad to see Nonacook here; do you know where Nigella went? I still make 'Nigella lights' using light globes and found a photo this week of her teapot hanging with a Christmas Cactus in it.

My photo is of a chia pet elephant that my nephew gave my mother more than 30 years ago. It now holds stones and holds a little brick wall together.

Here is a link that might be useful: Goodbye, Bottle Tree

RE: Inviting people to visit again

I come back to se what you folks are making. I haven't made much since I moved to OK. 7mo ago. Lots of gettng used to in a new place.
Will hit lots of flea mt. and garage sales this summer so I can start making garden junk again. We have a huge yard to work with.:).
Hope everyone is having a good star of a new year.
