Thank you for all the inspiration I have gotten from your wonderful photos. I only finished my first one, so I thought it not enough to create a new thread. When I get more done, I will post them on a separate thread.

Thanks Annmarie. It is Styrofoam that came out of my printer box. I drilled holes in the bottom and just added soil.

Blue Fox showed us how to use the styrofoam that comes out of boxes that are used for packing electronics, etc. Here is the link. http://garden.org/thread/go/560/

Larger rocks from my garden paths. Smiling

Fountain with birds from Goodwill store for 99 cents

Table and Chairs (from Hobby Lobby) http://shop.hobbylobby.com/search/link.aspx?id=53548312&q=ht...

but would have liked http://shop.miniaturegardenshoppe.com/Victorian-Patio-Table-... , but I didn't want to wait. Smiling

white picket fence from Hobby Lobby in their Christmas ornament section for 2.99 but can be purchased here year round http://shop.miniaturegardenshoppe.com/White-Picket-Fence-FE8...

White Arbor. I just used a piece of the picket fence and bent it in an arbor shape. Would have liked http://shop.miniaturegardenshoppe.com/Trellis-Garden-Arbor-S... but too expensive.

I sprayed all the wood and ceramic items as well as the table cloth and chair pads with http://www.krylon.com/products/acrylic_crystal_clear/

I'm not thrilled with the red checks, so I may make a new cloth and pads with a soft green color Rolling on the floor laughing

Yes Becky, I loved working on it. It was fun to play in the garden, inside with air conditioning. Also, it was neat to move the rocks around with serger tweezers instead of my arm and back muscles like I did in my outside garden. Very peaceful work. Rolling my eyes.

Ha, Annmarie. Imagine my surprise to see this thread. Thank you so much. And yes, that is what I used. Be sure to poke holes in the bottom of it. And if you are adding the small furniture or something, be sure to spray them with the clear acrylic BEFORE you start. I had to take mine out after I finished , because I forgot to spray them and it wasn't fun. I'm so glad I did however, cause it's raining very hard outside now, and at least it had 24 hours to dry first.
