My Brother's Garden, and Fun Whites For You

These are pictures of my brother's yard.
He gathers unique treasures.
Rusty can with sedum.

Rusty mailbox with flowers.

Unidentified critter.
(what does it look like to you?)

How about this cross he thought of and had put together.
It is an old rusty pick ax,
on a rusty steel pillar.
Love it!!

And he collects hearts for his yard.

Another Sprinkler.

Another Rock.

And here is my brother.

The biggest sweet heart of all.

A little white for you.

A gift basket full of goodies.
A donation for a Cancer Research Fund Raiser this week.

And look what I found.

I love it.
I took it all apart,
(so my sweet fella would not have to wire it and hang it for me).

and turned it upside down.....

Sweet cloche, don't you think?
Hmmm. wonder what I will put in it? =)

Here are some things I have been working on,
(and Braggin' about) =)

A special order Bird Nest Box.
A new Baby Shoe Bouquet

I'm joining these great parties today.
Please go visit and thank the wonderful hostesses.

Thanks for coming by.

Barbara Jean, what wonderful goodies. I cannot figure out at all how you made the picture which looks like it has been ripped open to reveal more of the picture. Fantastic! I also love the special order box!
