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!
