Nanny's House Part 2

Welcome is exactly what you feel...

 the wreath she found at a thrift store...
just adds a little pazazz to her fence...
 
the lady did have a head...
but in a move she lost her head...
so instead of crying...
Mom made her an art piece...
she guards over the greenery pond....
well it reminds me of a pond...
without water...
the birds love this area...

This rocking chair was in Hotrods nursery...
but it was broken....
Mom took it for a planter...
 

 some people just put a sweet potato in water...
Mom adds bling...
rocks and glass stones....
 Mr. Turtle getting a little sun...
I just love the little touches...
every time I'm there I find something new...
I didn't notice before...
I love the pond look in her bird bath...
the birds still come to visit...
the little Angel holding up the sunflower...
someone set the Angel out for trash...
the sunflower she has had for ever...
just a fresh coat of paint...
the Coke planter...
was a lamp that quit working...
she just turned it into a planter...
the base that was on the floor...
she turned upside down...
and used it to sit a plant on....
Happy July 3rd....
Have a safe 4th of July celebration....
we will be in this wonderful...special place...
my Mom's Oasis....

What a cool garden!!! I can see some people thinking it was trashy, but I agree with you, that there will always be something new to see!!! And you have to smile at that turtle!!!!!!

Your mom really has a knack for making things beautiful. I bet when one can see her yard in real life the beauty is breath taking. Thanks sweet Deb for sharing your moms talent and beautiful yard things. I am certainly enjoying seeing them. Hugs
