Re: Urban Farmhouse... an Ohio Hot Spot

I L-O-V-E the Urban Farmhouse! I live 3 hours north of the shop so I'm only able to visit once a year (when going to Columbus for christmas shopping). It's nothing to spend 2+ hours walking around and seeing something you didn't see the first (or second) pass around! The staff is nice and I can always find something I can't live without! :) I've never been to any place quiet like it. If you make the journey to visit, you certainly won't regret it!! Cindy

Re: Garden junk!

These are neat-o! The last picture (that you bought at a flea market) is what my father in-law called a corn planter. I have one displayed in my home that belonged to him (and it still has some seeds in it :). He used it to replant seeds in his garden the spots where seeds didn't sprout.

Thanks to all for the inspirationional posts! :) Cindy

Re: Garden Junk Totems

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.

Re: A Junky Little Herb Garden

Super idea!!!

Re: Garden Junk Totems

Glad you like them! I use a waterproof adhesive that can bond glass and ceramics. If can be found at your local hardware or a mass retailer that has a hardware section.

Re: Nature's Nest Farm Art Festival and Farmer's Market

I LOVE the garden dishflowwas!!! Super neat gift idea for the gardener with my Mom. How do you attach the copper 'stem' to the dish?

I appreciate each of you that take the time to share your ideas on this wonderful site. As a mom of 3 and working full time, it doesn't allow much creative time, but JMS energizes me!!!
