I wanted them.
I wanted a pretty garden like that…
See, our garden is NOT pretty. It’ll never be pretty while we allow horses in it. At the moment we have to feed Dancer in the yard cause the boys eat her food. She also enjoys a nibble of the grass. And stomping on my pathetic excuse for a flower garden.
I guess I have to decide what’s more important… spending quality time with the equines, or a pretty garden.
I’m working on it.
Anyway, I admired the baubles on Pinterest.
I looked at them.
I decided I could make something similar.
I had a few odds and ends around the house. I found more at op shops. I got to work.
Lesson: do not buy $2 dollar store superglue. You may as well use flour and water.
But I know that now. Not when I was making these things. Here is what my coffee table looked like for a week.
After they dried, I put them on a bookcase to wait till the weather improved enough to put them outside.
Naturally DJ knocked them over. Broke 2 of them and proved that the glues I used were not up to the challenge.
I fixed what I could, then took the survivors and put them in the garden. Or whats left of it.
Till then, they ARE the beauty in my garden.
