i'm having a little too much fun this summer with marine glue and cheap vintage dishes! wouldn't ya say?
i picked up several wooden garden hoes at a garage sale for $1. then had brad cut them in various lengths. i glued shabby chic odds and ends together in the form of a flower and attached them (glue again) to the garden pole. they're suppose to be china flowers. the originals that i saw... were attached to a metal concrete pole. which we have no access to...and i didn't want to spend $$. each china flower cost under a dollar to make.... i've picked up a nice bunch of dishes at garage sales this summer for .25 or less. smile, wink, nod.
p.s. it gives my garden a little spunk!

with that Marine glue you've been sniffing I'm curious to see what your next creative project will be. I'm picturing a Jackson Pollack moment with you and a huge canvas, glueing, painting, spraying, Oh MY!

Have fun!
