Garden Whimsies Cure The Blues!

How about a couple colorful garden whimsies to chase the blues away?!  

I finally found a few pieces to go with what I already had and voila!


So much inspiration was found at http://www.gardenwhimsiesbymary.com/.   Mary lives in Florida and is having much success with her little business, even had a TV Interview!   You can see it all on her website.

Even more inspiration was found on Mary-Jo's blog: http://www.westbrookfarmscountrygoods.blogspot.com/.   (She won the runner-up prize in my giveaway last month.)   She sells all her goods in the cutest craft mall in Michigan and has an etsy shop!

Thanks girls!   Please visit both sites when you can; very cute stuff!

Once the garden whimsies are cured, I'll glue a small vase to the bottom to fit on a pipe that you can easily place in your garden for some added whimsey!

I think it was Mary from Florida who started calling these ceramic totem pieces whimsies and I sure hope she didn't trademark the name! ha!   Sorry Mary for any infringement!

Well, I think my craft blues are almost gone!   These whimsies sure helped!!

Very cute whimsies. Have you checked out Garden Junk at the Garden Web forums. You will find lots of inspiration there. Thanks for the links to the other blogs.

Love the totems!! They're beautiful. Would you believe I have the same lady bug teapot? I used it on a garden stake. Great minds think alike!!

Thanks for giving me a plug on your blog. Can't wait to share it my friends.

If removal is not an option, placing the TV in a cabinet with doors is another good option; this will allow it to be hidden away for times when
television viewing is not on the agenda. You can add other contemporary
furniture like glass thin bookshelves and geometrically designed
bedroom furnishings. Bedroom decorating ideas using vases in interesting shapes are also a great décor alternative.

The West Bottoms off 12th street also holds many a re - Claimed treasure.
To bring nature on your table you can also use Sweet-gum-tree spurs,just punch
the card with hole and tie in place with ribbon. Look for a hardback book of the
appropriate size or select a trio of books.

Smooth, plastered walls, usually in light colors,
could be found in the typical Victorian home. The best place to know art is
the art gallery. There is a lot more to interior design than first meets the eye.
