Sorry Terri Rolling my eyes. I just have to do things as the mood and energy level strikes, cause it's all over when I hit the brick wall. Today was a day for packing the huge order, and dreaming of hypertufa, and making some garden totems. Do we have a thread for that? Seems to me Tee got me started, a while back.

Here's the two that I did today:

I think I like the first one best. What do you think? I just previewed this and it's cut the top and bottom of the picture off. Maybe I should redo it. Let me know if you want better pictures. On second thoughts, when you click on the thumbnail it brings up the whole thing. Enjoy!

They're both nice Jacki, but I like the 1st one best too. You've sure got a creative streak going! Hurray!

My favorite is the first one also.
I think Jacki is trying to get us hooked on another creative project. Rolling on the floor laughing Uh oh, I'm getting a funny feeling. Think I'll go out in the shed and see what's out there. Whistling

Well, lets face it, we all have boxes of crockery that old Auntie May gave us, or that we picked up at the flea market because we loved the pattern, but then what? It sits there gathering dust. I love that you can revitalize all those neat old things and if it's stuff that you don't really worry about breaking, why not make a funky garden ornament? I'm still working on figuring out the best kind of glue...guess I'll just have to make some more Whistling

We've got a thread for totems, stacks, and glass in the garden over in the Garden Art Forum. Would love to see more, if you have them. Rolling my eyes.
