DH & I went to a great FMrkt a couple weekends ago & I got these great BIG iron wheels & a rusty old funnel...that same day my SIL delivered these 3 old tall doors that used to be his garage doors in an old house. Wow, a GREAT GJ day!

Wheels Doors & Funnel 8.12

Got some clearance plants @ Lowes the other day ... added 3 @ 40 cts each of "Mexican Heather." The funnel planter idea is copied from a friend on the Internet ... 'S' hooks, old chain & a bigger 'S' hook for hanging ...I love it!

Those are awesome finds Jeanne! LOVE the wheels and they look great in your yard. The funnel is so pretty with the Mexican heather in that plant...just wish it was hardy here.

All of your vignettes are looking great!

Can't wait to see what you use the doors for...they are too cool. TFS~

Gee I wanna tour your gardens soooo bad! Love all the vignettes! TFS Carol

The wheel looks great with the mushroom birdbath. The heather is perfect for that funnel, it must be pretty big! The little bird houses are so cute on the gate & tipsy buckets filled in beautifully. Doors will end up something wonderful I'm sure! Your other ones did!TFS Jan

Love the funnel! What a great idea and look!

RE: Recent Flea Market Finds in the Gardens

I want! I want the gate, the funnel, and a few other of your finds, LOL. You made great use use of your treasures. I'd use the old doors, front and back, on my own garage. They still look useable.
