Upside~Down Tomato Cages

Here is what I did during a mid~afternoon tea break today...


I made some toppers for my upside~down tomato cages...
To decorate potted plants...I place a tomato cage in a pot...upside~down!


See...then for fun and flair...I made some toppers...

You can make them out of anything...
Here is an upside~down metal pot and I added an old drawer pull to the top...

Baby clay pot, lace, button, sea shells, and a magic marker...

The usual suspects...clay pot, buttons, marker and a finial...


Here...a bit of ribbon, paint, nest and a ratty~tatty old fake~ola bird...


This is a salt~n~pepper shaker I found at the grocery store for a buck...

See...

We might get snow...but I am dreaming of more garden shenanigans when Mr. Sun returns...

Happy Monday

Hi Ramona,

I came by to thank you for saying my header was cute. I have no idea if they are "real" flowers or weeds but they have been popping up all over in the grass (which leads me to think they are weeds). Lexi picked a bunch of them and brought them in to me so they are in a vase on my mantle and I took a picture. She LOVED that I put "her" flowers on my header for now.
