A bicycle basket, a few gourds and my house numbers welcome my guests...
A crusty old lawnmover and a few more gourds...
I apologize for my sad looking mums...I have to admit, theyve been neglected.  It got cold fast here in MN I kind of forgot about them...just the other day my sweet hubby said Man those are some Hardy Mums...ooops!!!
I got this chippy, rusty stand at a barn sale for cheap and this wooden bucket at the French Flea a few weeks ago...a perfect marriage in my book.  There is a base on this stand buried in the rock.  I think it would make a nice wine bucket on my deck as well...nice to have options...
A dead summer plant, a pumpkin and a couple of cool metal pieces and were good to go...

That foot shaped "thingie" hanging at the top of your bike basket is cool! (I know there has to be a name for it, right??) ha ha!
