I found this bentwood chair at a local fleamarket. It was already painted orange. No seat. I decided that it was just fine the way I found it. I place a large terracotta pot in the seat and planted succulents.
Sometimes simplicity is enough!

I felt this chair needed to reflect a patriotic theme. It painted it for the Clovis Elks to auction in December to raise funds for their annual Christmas Classic Basketball tournament for high school athletes.

I attended Madera Master Gardeners, Fall Holiday Wreath and Decor workshop today. Everyone had a fantastic time and we are eager to join in again November 19, for another holiday wreath workshop.
This wreath is made from all natural materials from the garden. The structure is a grapevine, large leaves are magnolia, rosettes came from a deodara cedar, and moss is used for a filler. Look in your garden for interesting leaves, dried berries, twigs, and seed pods etc. A glue gun was used to attach all the different materials.
I am always looking to add yard art to my garden. The latest rage is making flowers from discarded plates. I have decided to call these my forever flowers. They will keep blooming all year and never wilt or fade.
I found these plates at various flea markets, Goodwill, and Salvation. My hubby drilled the holes on the silver plated plates with a standard drill bit, each separately. Copper tubing was used as a spacer, if dimension between the plates is desired. A bolt, washer, and nut was put through all of them. The flower can be hung from a wall or fence or attached to an electrical metallic tubing (EMT) to stake in the ground. The size of the bolt will vary depending on how many plates and are assembled and the thickness of the plates.
The ceramic plates were a bit of a challenge. He was only able to drill through the largest plate, located in the rear, with a masonry bit. It was really difficult to drill the other plates, so he just put the bolt, washer and screw through that rear plate so he could attach to the EMT and then used epoxy glue to attach the other plates and knob.
