42  HOME SWEET HOME / Exterior Decorating / Yard Art / Gardening: Completed Projects / Aquarium stand turned plant holder on: June 11, 2014 01:58:37 PM
I made a quick diy plant stand from a recycled old wrought iron aquarium stand thats been hanging around forever ! , 1$ floral wire and 3 dollar store planters ! I love it , Now I just need some more plants for it and to decide what to do with the bottom ( more planters or plant directly in the soil ..?) .. this section of our yard near the pond We plan to use bricks or landscaping timbers filled with pea gravel to make a little sitting area . ...note the planters were too small squared up so I placed them on the diagonal and used wire to secure them in place


I love making use of items that might  otherwise end up in the trash
 Thanks for looking and have a great day

Thanks for the positive feed back ! Yes I do live in an area that frosts ( Illinois zone 5 )  The pond is actually sunken into the ground 12 inches but 12 inches still remain above ground . Im still researching and chatting with other pond owners about how to winterize it . I may get a heater and wrap the pond with insulating wrap for winter ooor I may end up bringing the fishies inside to overwinter thru the rough weather . I wish My house was bigger I would already be sitting up a holding tank for them and letting it cycle now  I figure in My zone Ill need to have a plan By mid sept . I only have 8 fish so if I have to bring them in Im thinking a larger rubbermaid with a hob filter should suit them thru the rough months . Ill post updates along the way

45  HOME SWEET HOME / Exterior Decorating / Yard Art / Gardening: Completed Projects / (Updated pics )Horse trough container gold fish pond/ fountain on: June 10, 2014 09:07:49 PM
Hi everyone

  Im really excited to share My Gold fish pond made from 90 % recycled materials . My Mom was moving and cleaning out her old property . I quickly called dibs on a 200 gallon stock tank metal horse trough , and 2 decorative barrels from a broken fountain , I got the antique sink sport for 2 dollars at a garage sale and all the rock and brick used ( besides pea gravel ) was recycled and re claimed !  The biggest cost was 100 $ for the " pond lit" which included a huge liner , 300 gallon power head and 3 lead lights ( A good deal considering a pump alone is 40 -60 . ) We needed the liner because My Mom had  used the trough for a tomato planter and  it had a 2 inch drainage whole . I am showing alot of progress pics here . in the final pic its the pond as of tonight . The surround still isnt 100 % finished because a friend is tearing down a cobble stone and marble fire pit very soon  and letting us salvage the materials so We are planning to make a marble ledge covering the liner bits .. for now I started placing flatish cobble stones to give a general idea

I re-placed the cobble stones and the plants are getting bigger

pic from tonight


progress pics








Thanks so much for looking and Id  be glad to answer any questions and Ill upload more progress pics .. ID love to see your DIY ponds as well !
 Have a great night

47  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Tacky gold + Antique lace= AMAZING brocade skater skirt on: June 06, 2014 02:55:58 PM
My MIL gave My some gold fabric that was a bit much on its own .. I  had  recently picked up a yellowish creamy lace antique curtain that was a bit plain  .. I combined the two and I LOVE the " Brocade" effect ! I made a simple high waist circle " skater " skirt and Im really proud of how it came out

The black velvet top with gold sequins was My cousins Grandmas ! and It goes perfect







Thanks for looking and have a great day

48  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Rainbow " skater" circle dress on: June 06, 2014 01:05:43 PM
Hi everyone , I am so happy with My new circle " skater" dress made with red, yellow and blue striped vintage polyester knit fabric with coral colored vintage polyester  waist inserts






 This dress was so easy to make .. Had I not added the waist inserts I could have made this dress with only 3 seams ! Very easy to do even by hand ! I can make a tute if anyone wants

Have a great day and thanks for looking
