Here is a spot for recycled " stuff " that wants to add interest and color to your garden. No weeding, fertilizing, spraying needed!
Don't squat with yer spurs on!

People try to turn back their "odometers." Not me. I want people to know 'why' I look this way. I've traveled a long way and some of the roads weren't paved

Ask @Dave I don't have a clue.

Rosie, you are soooo right about not throwing away! I have stuff like some of the ones pictured just waiting to be picked up and transformed. Thanks! Thumbs up I've starred your post so can refer to it when I attempt to make garden art. Hilarious! Hilarious!

By the way, do you have pictures of wind chimes? Our trade winds sometimes blows so hard that chimes I have purchased fall apart. Either that, or the chimes were poorly made.

Here is a chime I made from recycled glass and beads. It's been in some pretty high winds and hasn't broken yet.

One of those above was a chime...spoons?

I have 2 Music of the Spheres and those are TOUGH.

And this second photo shows a chime -- about 8-9 feet high...little knockers hit into the disks and resonate beautifully. I stake it down.n

You have to find a chime that has a tough sun-resistant cord. Those transparent fish line types stiffen with exposure to the ultravoilet light of the sun. Or if you make your own, use thin rope made for outdoors and maybe run through wax every now and again.

OOOOOh my, thanks for posting these! I will be on the look out for the pieces to make some of these, I'm working on a drangonfly with table legs and fan blades now
This is an angel made out of things found curbside on bulk trash day and the dump re- store

I have another angel but will have to wait to post it
The pic is not the best, I should probably start using my camera instead of my phone, Whistling
Thanks again Drooling
