Garden Jar


Out junking and found 3 big pickle jars for 25c each~~




~~added an old handle to the lid and painted it white~~




Taped off an oblong portion of the glass and painted white then added a photo copy of a roses bouquet onto "tissue wrapping paper"~~ then mod podged onto the white paint~~ scratched her up a bit to look antique-y~~




A sweet old jar to hold maybe some dried herbs like these~~

Rosemary, Thyme, Oregano or Sage~~




Here's one of my favorite plants; Artemesia Silver King~~talk about more for your money~~can be aggressive, but I love to get all those free plants and give away some too~~

Can get about 3 feet tall; a beautiful light gray plant~~so elegant and pretty.  A wonderful filler and grows fast.





Below; I transplanted these two little Artemesia's in front of the shed just this spring; look how they are filling out already~~



Nice photo of shed window sporting a big plastic bottle of window wash! 




My dressed-up bird-bath with wreath and flowers~~





Here's one of my hydrangea bushes finally getting some flower heads~~



This bush helps hide the ugly central air unit on this side of the house~~



~~My Mother's Day potted plant~~so pretty and huge!





A freebie curbside:
a broken bird-cage that will soon lose the bottom plastic portion and become a garden cloche~~or something.



Finishing up some old projects and junk hunting day is tomorrow~~I live for Tuesday's 'cause that seems to be my best day to find bargains before the weekend yardsales!
