from Flea Market Gardening (https://www.facebook.com/fleamarketgardening): "Oh I am so excited about finishing my 'Shutter Angel' this week! She's out on the path to my 'Secret Garden in the Pines.' My DH (darlin' hubby) helped me make her 'bouquet' of flowers (needed some extra 'hand strength' with the barbed wire) & her 'halo.' Yes, she is a 'tall' angel & I will be planting a nice big hosta or a small shrub @ her feet or what I call her 'flowing gown' area."
Next time you spy an old sewing machine's treadle base at a flea market, think twice before you walk away. These ornate metal supports ($30 and up on craigslist.org) can be repurposed as charming stands for outdoor containers. Click for tips on how.
