Here are my versions of the garden junk tower that Chovey & JunkerMidge shared. It all started when I wanted a unique Mother's Day for my garden-lovin' Mom. I've made these for my family and friends...once I got started, I couldnt stop creating!!! Thanks to all of you for postings and your inspiration!!!

cindyb82 writes: WOW!!! $40! I sold a couple of them at the Springfield (OH) Flea Market in May for $15. I try to keep my cost low (visioning my huge black lab toying with one-yikes!). Although the first one I made for my mom probably cost me $20 in materials. I'm located in NW Ohio. Posted: 8:57 am on June 26th

Take care,
