A to Z Badge 2012 (1)

These first two pics are projects I’m going to take a run at.

I saw this pic in my JunkMarket Style magazine and tucked it away while keeping my eyes peeled for a birdcage.  Lo and behold, last summer & just down the street there it was.  The exact birdcage!  I’ll tweak it to fit our office.  A project for this summer.

My cousin, Kristy, sent me this one she saw on Pinterest.  She knows I had my veggie garden in tires last year.  I think this would be something to spruce up under my window in the front of the house.  I’d probably just do five for starters, and mine wouldn’t be the really wide tires.  Hope my husband agrees!  {ok, I just showed my husband.  He said I could do them all…and put them in front of Mrs. C’s house next door!}

This chair was part of a set which included 4 chairs and a small table.  A friend and I saw it on the curb while visiting down in Phoenix.  There was no way we could fit the whole kit and kaboodle in the back of my Trailblazer, but I did manage to get two in.  I gave one away and kept this one.  I took the seat out and the planter set in there perfectly. 


Here’s a close-up my sis took with the Morning Glories winding their way around it.


Ah, just a little longer and I can start planting my flowers.

God bless,


I’m also participating in the A-Z Challenge here.


  1. Love them all!! I've seen people plant in the tires but never paint them. Nice!!

  2. i might just have to try the painted tires--love it!

  3. Wow, those tire creations are really really cool! Awesome post and happy A-Z blogging.

  4. I love the bird cage project! How neat that will be. And the flowers are beautiful, too. Enjoy your day! Hope everyone feels better soon!


I'm interested in what you have to say. Thanks for taking the time to say it!
