Pulled Out Garden Decor for Spring


My dad made this crane planter box and gave it to me when he moved into a retirement home. I mosaiced it and added it to my front yard by my otter fountain. Sure hope he eats slugs.lol

I planted sweet peas in my cart and added my garden bunny. Metal birds also hang out on this.

My palm tree made it through the winter. Last year I covered it and put it in the shed. Im so glad that I was able to bring it out for spring.

And with Easter just around the corner I pulled out my vintage paper honeycomb eggs and paper display and brightened up my bay window.

    OMG! I have one of these Heron planters also! It belonged to my oldest sister who passed away 4 years ago. It has broken just above where the legs insert into the body so I have been unable to use it. I couldn't bring myself to get rid of it since it belonged to my sister and was given to me by my brother-in-law. This is an inspiration to fix it and do the mosaic application to it. Thank you soooooo much! I can hardly wait to do this to make it a special memory of my sister.

      @Rebecca DeMars Stamper Mine had broken feet and needed some repairs but knew this would probably be the last big project my dad would do with wood. Since he has no feeling in his finger tips I also knew it took allot of work for dad to make. He just looked at a picture and cut the pieces out. Its so special to me and Im sure yours will bet a beautiful piece to remember your sister too. Hope you post pictures..love to see it.
