LETTER R is for WHIMSICAL GARDEN SCulPTurE!


6 o'clock tonight, found me with my dear friend rhonda (that's her above) traveling down a dusty country back road, with car window's open and our hair blowing...heading to a quaint little herb farm. we had anticipated this night for several months. reservations were made months ago. it included a garden-herb walk; looking for garden faerie houses, a whimsical garden decoration project, tai chi tea and black tea both with lavender syrup!


we were told to bring a variety of odd, mis-matched dishes...but, had no clear idea of what we were going to make! part of the excitement was "not knowing!" unfortunately, I didn't bring the right dishes to suit my needs.... nor did rhonda... but that didn't stop our burning desire to get home and create! we slipped right up to aco hardware, down aisle five and each bought a tube of marine goop glue. bright blue package. $8.


the idea is to make (glue together) a dish sculpture! i came right home and made this. look close, and you'll see the vintage door knob that i bought for a nickle and had no clue what to do with!! i filled a clear glass jar up with tiny pebbles....to add interest.



now imagine an odd numbered group of these sculptures, in the garden! (odd numbers make the best art statements!) i'll be making more of these...you can count on that! i'll be using the tea cup on top for water and on the plate...i'll sprinkle a little birdseed.
did you notice the letter r had nothing to do with any of this? thought so.

This is so cute. I'll be getting some of that glue and making a few. I love the concept of bird bath feeder.

Laurie at Magpie Ethel is one of my favorite blogs (and that is where I saw your link). Even though I blog about dogs, I still like the creative bloggers and I do a few crafty things myself. Hmmm - maybe I should start my own blog separate from the dogs.

Have a Wonderful Wednesday and if you get a chance stop by for a visit.

What a fun creative evening...great that it inspired you to make more - I agree things like that look good with more than one. (love the little pink pop of color in the center!)Fun, fun!

This really intrigued me when I saw it a few days ago and I did not have time to comment. I Love it! I want to do something like this. So many projects, so little time!!!!!
