On Sun. I posted a few pics of "A Little Garden Junk..." ...here's the before pic of the 'Shroom Birdbath that I got for $20:

Cement Birdbath Before 8.11

I got it painted today ... I used Rusteoleum spray paints in 3 colors & am happy w/the results...now time can work away at the paints:

Shroom Birdbath "After" 8.11

It's very heavy so DH had to help me lift the top back on again! LOL! (this is a permanent location now!)

I worked w/some stumps of wood I had out there & added a couple of the cement 'shrooms DH & I have been creating for Farmer's Mrkt. And note, there are real mushrooms on the logs, too!
Shroom Birdbath Stumps 8.11

Added a few Curly Willow sticks around the birdhse post ...this is still a WIP...

Shroom Birdbath Vignette 8.11

In this Secret Garden area I can sit in my swing in the Pines & look across at the birdhouses & this 'Shroom. Here's my dog taking a break w/me in the swing...ckg. out the 'Shroom vignette!

Dog is so cute & I think I can read his/her mind."What's she going to do next!" Love the dog's expression, but hey, 1 more place to explore & maybe some birds will visit that lovely birdbath & he can lazily ?(is that a word?) watch them. The curly willow are neat & can't wait to see the finished vignette! Jan

Wonderful, Jeanne. I really like the paint job on the birdbath! Wish I could join you and your dog in the swing.

What a lovely area, and the real mushrooms make it all coordinate so nicely. I love the colors you chose for the birdbath, it brightened it up and blends in all at the same time.

Wonderful secret garden. Great color choices on the mushroom which I am now even more jealous of.
