Garden Totems for Christmas gifts

I've been busy the past couple weeks filling orders for my garden totems and garden totem stakes for Christmas gifts. I guess the word is slowly getting out. I hope the trend continues. Here are a few of items I've completed and sold in the past week. Plese check out my Facebook page - Garden Whimsies by Mary. Thanks for viewing.

Very, very nice! And that's terrific that you're getting that many orders! I did have a question: when a piece comes apart, like the teapot lids, do you glue them together so they don't come apart? And are you using GE II for this?
Thanks and great job!!

Hi garden-potter. Yes, I do glue the lids shut on teapots, etc. I also close the spout hole with half round marbles. Don't want any water to get inside. I swear by the GE Silicone II. Great stuff!

These are really attractive, Mary...am glad you got some orders ...they would be a wonderful gift & your prices for the garden stakes are exceptionally reasonable, I would think. Sounds like you have good sources for your dishes...great! TFS! Jeanne S.

You really have a great eye for putting just the right pieces together for your totems. I can't decide which one I like better! I can definitely see why you are getting so many orders!

Kathy, if you join Facebook look some of us up. There are a bunch of us Garden Junkers on there. They usually post their new creations on there along with decorations in their homes (which are totally awesome too).

Wow, you do wonderful work! I'm wondering about the GEII that you use. I bought some the other day but I thought it was really thick to use, hard to squeeze out of the tube in order to get a thin strip. I almost thought maybe I got an old tube that had hardened? I keep reading about everyone using it. Is it supposed to be thick and opaque in color? I've been using E-6000 for about a year and it's easy to use but sometimes a little runny. Please let me know if you think I got a bad tube.
Thanks,
Marilyn

Hi Marilyn aka flowers12. I use the GEII in the caulking tube. I think you may have purchased the small tube? I use a caulking gun for my projects. You can snip the tube point to get the desired flow. The GEII is thick and opaque but dries clear. Good luck with your projects! Be sure to post pics when you're done. Mary
