Solar Light “totem” project
A variety of clay, glass and china have been assembled and are ready for the addition of the solar light component! These will be for the patio or garden and cast the lovliest light…believe it or not…all year long! I have some that I assembled last summer and I purposely left them out all winter. They still light up and although they may need a new AA Battery, I am so happy to see they are still very functional.
I marked each of the newly assembled “totems” with a sign for which solar light will be attached to the top. These are going to be available at HANDMADE on CHARLES STREET which is my yearly home show that will take place May 3 & 4 at 7746 Charles Street. Visit FRIENDS BY DESIGN blog for more specific show information.
More photos as the show gets closer. Come by if you can!! 10 artists participating…
Tabletop or Patio Bird Feeders
This project is for the birds… No, I mean it! Fill the top of these towers with bird seed and watch them flock to your patio table or garden! It was fun choosing from all of that glassware and china that I have been hoarding in my basement. These will likely go to the Garden Gallery
in Elkhorn to sell, complete with a little bird seed!
PS: Birds are hungry all year long… You can save these for warmer weather or set them out on those sunny days right now…
GARDEN ART totems from old glassware/china & wine bottles
Here are two of our Garden Art totems that could decorate your garden in a big way! We have spent years collecting old glassware, china, bud vases and yes, wine bottles… These are assembled with strong waterproof adhesive and could make your garden sparkle. These will be available at our Handmade on Charles Home Show on May 11th & 12th. (priced from $17 each)
