                                                                                      Before
 This week my masterpiece is continuing to decorate my garden, by thrifty means. I found a few potted flowers at the 99 cent store this weekend, and used them to spiff up my container area. I also added my garden angel which I made a few years ago. Do you like her hair? I made it with coat hangers!


                                                                                  After
 Interesting what a couple of flowers will do, I'm looking forward to seeing how big they'll grow.

                                                                         After~After
 See these rusty rings? I used to have two wooden barrels until one fell apart, but I liked and kept the rusty rings, trying to decide what to do with them.
 I had this idea in my head to use them as garden art. I covered them in chicken wire and used them to frame my hanging flower baskets.


And then later I put together a Summer wall vignette, using all of my mercury glass votives.
                                 
                                                            

I added some scrapbook paper and hot glued some tissue paper covered wire which I shaped into letters.
