What can you make with a junk toilet tank, a plastic coke bottle, and some broken tiles? A one-of-a-kind mosaic planter for the garden!

Beautiful art and I love the recycling aspect of it as well. There certainly isn't a shortage of old toilets that could be made into garden art. :-) Posted: 7:21 am on November 30th

suewhitney writes: It is with great pleasure that I introduce an amazing new talent to the fabulous line up of contributors here at JMS.... Michael Helander, author of Blue Velvet Chair. Yes, Michael is a woman and she shares a delightful story about growing up with a "man's" name and an equally as charming tale about the blue velvet chair that was and remains her inspiration. Take a look at her blog and visit her profile page here at JMS to learn more about Michael. Please give Michael a great big JMS welcome!! I am very excited to have her on board and look forward to seeing more of her creative work here at JMS. Welcome, Michael! Take Care, Sue Posted: 10:24 am on November 18th
