GaRdEn Art (letter A)

 garden artwork!
this sunday afternoon, found me in my white rocking chair, under the apple tree... using my hands to create this "tea time" wind-chime!


it's sort of cute here, but in real life, it's very cute!
i found a bag of tea tins, at local goodwill, for .99 cents.  the colander for a quarter and i already had glass beads in my junk cupboard.


yesterday, i found a bag of these (above) spice tins... a dime a piece, at a garage sale, 'round the corner.
can you guess, what i'll be doing with them?
smile, wink, nod.

Love the wind chime! My 8 yr old son said, "Wow mom, that looks like something fun to make!" Now I know what to look for at thrift stores and yard sales :)
