Rocco,
Whatever that thing is, I love it! It's a little scary-looking, but oddly appealing too.

Did the deer mind being stuffed ? What kind of deer was it ?

No argument out of this deer. He didn't complain a bit. The last time you guys saw him, he was empty, hollow. I used old nylons to hold the spagnam moss. I'm looking forward to seeing him fill out too. Later, Love, Lisa

I'm not really into a lot of things in the front garden but I do have 3 bears and a fountain along with a birdbath made of copper. The effect shown on the butterfly was made with a butane torch after I polished it.

That's pretty! I like copper in the garden. Especially when you get that patina after years of use.

Your rat seems a bit shy. Do you have cats? :wink:

I was wondering whether I have some appropriate junk in my garden, but the only thing I keep wondering whether to keep it is this one in the veggie garden:

What a great idea for kids. Something to really spark their imagination. And it looks good there between the chives and celery(?). CHAR

I thought this was a nice addition to a picket fence,and also a great way to recycle an old bike.

I guess I think this one is kind like the "whimsy" post so I couldn't help myself to post more pixs. Frog is new. I used'm in my troughs. Kat was taken in the garden of Peter Ruh. Later, Love, Lisa

That's my angel! This spring I hope to take photos to post here. Or maybe in June. We've had such warm weather but it's getting cold tonight and we're supposed to have snow this week.

I love this thread also. Every so often I come back and scan through all the pics again. There are so many neat and clever things you all have used. I don't have a creative mind, but you've certainly given me some ideas. I've picked up several garden things at of my favorite stores, but don't have pics of them yet. As soon as the weather gets nice I'll get outside with my camera and take some pics to post.
