gardenglassgems, I love what you did with the wheelbarrow and old stove! I love going to yard sales myself. I've also discovered the Salvation Army Thrift store. I've found some neat things there. About 2 years ago I was really into fairy gardens. I made some of my fairy houses and bought plain ceramic fairies and painted them myself. I had mini fairy & gnome gardens all over the place. The first photo shows a little waterfall feature I made in a small garden. The second photo is of a house I made the year before. It fell apart by the end of the year. I scaled back a lot this past year. I might steal your wheelbarrow idea this coming year. Green Grin!

Thanks Jane for the kind words and the pictures of your fairy garden and fairy house. I have not attempted a house yet but hope to some day. I am always changing things in my flower beds. I take things in for the winter and decorate different when I put them back out. I have lots of ideas but not enough time to get them all done.

Thank You! All I seem too want to do in the warm weather is spend time outside tending my flower beds and unfortunately dealing with weeds and grass growing where it shouldn't be. I stop at 2nd hand stores and garage sales as often as I can but not near as much as I would like to.
