Don't you just love all of the things you can make and do with Mason jars? I have been wanting Mason jar solar lights since I saw them in a catalog three years ago, but for $40 a jar
there was no way I would allow myself to buy them. I knew I needed to figure out a way to make them myself. I bought some solar lights at the dollar store and was able to come up with my own Mason jar solar lights. Please visit my blog to see all of the details.
This is my teahouse, built in one day from a kit. My son asked if I really wanted it in the front yard then decided it looked good once he had it together. I couldn't get a landscaper so have done the landscaping to the rest of front yard myself. Will be posting other pictures.

no expert on iris here either; mine bloom when they get a notion to. But Japanese iris seem
like the thing around the tea house. Lavender would be pretty too. I am thrilled to have your link, thanks so much, it is exactly what I was looking for. I'm going to see about getting a catalog.
Keeping junk out of the landfill. So I have finally run out of clay pots and have moved on to the next best thing. Coffee cans, soup cans, paint cans, teapots, chandelier parts and even anchovy cans for the feet. Meet my newest garden helper.

Oh, Deb B, please, please, please give us tin man instructions! I just ordered a "Scarecrow"
pest deterrent that uses an electronic eye to detect and spray a shot of water at unwanted garden visitors. I would love to have the Tin Man holding it.
