Coming up with these colorful creations has become my most favorite thing to do these days. Combing through various thrift stores, estate sales, even close outs at such places like Pier 1, then fiddling around with them until I find just the right combination...it can become an obsession! The pieces I post in my shop are the ones I consider my favorites. My yard is filled with them too, so I know they stand up well to weather! Rain or shine, the color they add never fades or wilts. I use silicone glue to attach the pieces and add a piece of PVC to the back that can accommodate a stake for "planting"(not included) or picture wire for hanging. I have several on the fence in my back yard.
