Well, it finally stopped raining long enough to take a picture of the bowling ball I did a few weeks ago. Here are a few pictures of it along with a "G" that I did. My husband and son think I'm crazy!

Very pretty! Your garden is lovely too. What did you attach the glass with? They are spaced so nicely.

Love your bowling ball AND your big G! Like your color choice and it looks great without grout....good to know since I've never done one and always thought it would be a pain to grout one.

Your garden looks wonderful too! Thanks for sharing.

thanks Marlene - yes, I wasn't too keen on grouting myself! Thanks for the compliment on my garden bed -- it's only about 1/10 of what I have but I do believe it's my favorite.

Hi
was thinking of doing something similar with a beach ball
But doubt silicone would adhere . Maybe PVC glue but doubt it would adhere to glass .
wife thinks I'm crazy also but so far has stopped short of commitment lol gary

Nice job on the BB and Letter(what is it made of?) and your garden bed is super lovely!

The letter is made of treated wood. I bought it on sale @ Hobby Lobby, but there are prettier & cheaper ones available on the internet. I just primed it & painted it (spray).

Love all three:) have you put a bench where you can sit and enjoy your favorite part of your garden? I was smitten with your G, a great idea and of course wondering when the next bowling ball will go in the garden, they are addicting!!!

That side of my favorite bed is visible from the master bedroom, breakfast room, living room & my son's room. I have benches and chairs dotted around outside that have different views. My problems is usually when I'm outside I am working. Occasionally I'll sit and look. I love to just stand close in front of that bed because it's always covered in bees, butterflies & hummers! I'm now working on a reclaimed birdcage to hang from the tree that the G is propped against. I'll post pictures when I'm done :)
