Another inspiration project.  This came from a "French Flea Market" a couple of weeks ago.  The possibilites are endless.  Bottles, vases or anything that can be inverted.  The top again is anything you like.  Mine are different types from a tea pot, paper weight, figurine, glass fruit,  ceramic bottle, ginger jar--use your imagination--anything goes.  I used "Goop" to glue together and then placed on a dowel.  These look great in any garden.  I will be giving all way--except for the one with the paper weight--JH came up with that idea (and it was a great one).

LuAnn writes: Thanks to all of you for your kind words. Once you get started you can't stop. I was just at a thrift store looking for more ideas to place in my garden. I'm all about junk in the garden. Good luck to all--hope to see pics of your "vase on a stick" projects. LuAnn Posted: 3:58 pm on June 16th

Thanks for sharing, my friend!
