Yep, wooden spoons can leave the kitchen and decorate your garden artfully, whimsically and practically!

Use to decorate your flower beds, use as plant stakes or come up with something new.

We hope you will let your creativity take hold and have fun for the next 7 days, creating and dreaming up new ideas and having fun!

The winner will be selected randomly by Vicki's DH Hank. You'll be assigned a number and he will draw one out of a hat (or bowl or something Green Grin! ).

The winner will receive 3 wooden spoons painted by Becky (me) which will be posted later tonight. I haven't had time to paint them! *Blush*

Here is a link to google to get your spurred on with fun ideas!
The challenge ends Monday January 13th at 8:00 AM MST.

This will be FUN! Hurray! Hurray!

Sorry folks, I'm not as tech savy as Dave and Trish are Whistling I have a smart phone that would record Hank picking the winner but have NO clue how to do that. *Blush*

Can't WAIT to see your spoons Green Grin! Thumbs up

I told Vicki privately I can't wait to see the prize spoons. I got slightly behind with Christmas, my trip to Oklahoma. Rolling on the floor laughing

I am ashamed.

I didn't finish the reward spoons for you yet. One is a frog, one a bird and one a garden lady!

I did not paint these; they are from Jess Quin at http://jessquinn.wordpress.com/

I love the idea of wooden spoons poking into the soil throughout the garden with faces on them . . . faces of people or animals.

Finally I can share the wooden spoon art you'll win if Hank (Vicki's DH) pulls your name. I apologize for being so tardy.

The challenge ends at 8:00 on Monday EST January 20th so be sure to post your spoon or spoons before then.

Tweet, Ribbit and the Garden Gal will go to a good home soon!
