Garden Art


 So I have been seeing garden art everywhere on Pinterest & Etsy, and I always wanted to make one that was unique, functional & different from all the ones you see there.  My sister Sally & I had been talking about it, and one day she brought me a glass candy dish & a candle stick.  "This should be the prototype for the "Art" we want to build", she proclaimed.  I began searching for a bottom that I could use that were different than just the small bud vases.  Couple of months went by, and I had just about forgot about the "Art" when as usual when you quit looking it jumps out at you.  We were out hitting local resale shops looking for old golf clubs, when we decided to stop at a local Mom & Pop dollar store.  Low and behold I found the bottom I wanted to use on the Garden Art as soon as I walked in the door.  The tall Eiffel tower vases just about jumped off the shelf & into my arms.  I bought a couple and started creating!  These vases are not easy to find, especially the green. Here are some of the creation I have made.   Enjoy....

The Collection!

I have decided not to ship these pieces, as I would be so worried that they would break in transit & if I did ship them the cost would be so high.  I might reconsider at a later date.  So if you have to have one or would like to look at one I have them on display at 
West Brazos Golf Center, Brazoria, Texas
They are also available for viewing on my Facebook page @

I have also decided not to call these "Bird Feeders" anymore, so for ever more they will be known as "Garden Art".  One reason is the "Squirrel" issue!  These guys are heavy and destructive, and I do not want them to get broken.  I have played with many types of glue and nothing, I mean nothing will keep these creatures from tearing one up!  So "Art" it is, unless you want to feed the bird!!
