Absolutely LOVED the Outdoor Edition! My favorite piece was the scroll grate wreath. Intense visualization let to instant gratification. Sorry Sue, I couldnt wait till Christmas. I wired the grate to a straw wreath and the floral grapevine fit nicely over it. ($4.50 from the thrift store)
The bird nest rusty wire bow that I made years ago found a new home.
While playing with faux flowers ,decided to make a simple wood planter box from scrap just the size of an old license plate.

Happy Junking!
