I saw CherryForever's glass birdbath and had to post some of my yard totems.  I have been making them since this spring when I went to a gardening seminar and I learned about them and how to make them.






They are all made of plant pots, vases, cups, candle holders, ash trays, light globes, etc.  Some have a dish on the top to be used for bird seed/bath, some are just for looks among the flowers.

I don't know. . .  If others have this problem, maybe I'll have to take down my post.   Cry

are your pictures in photobucket? that's where i keep mine to link them here and it seems to work without any problems. it's a free site to and pretty easy to use, if you haven't tried it already...
i'd love to see your work, don't give up just yet!

Those are so great!  What adhesive/hardware did you use to make everything solid and joined?

Beautiful work!

I've only ever seen the concrete cast totems and hypertufa on the Gardenweb forums.
I love how you used everyday objects.

Love it!

very nice! I love them esp the all white one. I will finally have my own yard and can do whatever I want to it. Yaya! And totems and flowers will be the first things happening in the spring! Thanks for sharing yours.

Thanks, all, for your kind words! 

I used indoor/outdoor silicone caulk to hold everything together.  It gives a little bit so things don't break so easily if they fall and it's very cheap.
