look at my six foot cactus and the three foot dragon and the bug that's only a foot tall - all made by my talented son. The cactus is made from pipe, barbed wire and the pot is a brake drum from a semi truck. The dragon is made from all kinds of junk. The bug is made from railroad spikes and the body is the piece that holds the rails to the ties, head is made from a sickle mower guard. No trains were harmed in the construction of this sculpture.

I forgot the bottle lady, she hangs around out in the flowers, she is a beauty in all her plastic glory, and I made her.

I would love to know what you used to put your fabulous bottle lady together with. I find her highly amusing and would like to try my hand at something similiar for my garden...if you would be so inclined.
Your sons work is amazing too.

babbetto-the bottle lady is made from various bottle caps from pop bottles, vitamin bottles, a pudding cup, and her boobs are the inside plungers from a Mentadent toothpaste refill. I use a metal skewer heated in a flame to melt holes in everything where it is needed and then I string them together. Sometimes I use nylon fishing line and sometimes wire. This particular lady has hair made from strips cut from a black plastic salad container that I tried to shrink and twist, I was aiming at beads but it wasn't working so it became hair. The pudding cup makes a nice hat to hang her hair from. I have made characters that are bigger from things such as detergent jugs, just use what you have and let your imagination run wild.

Okay, I have to scrounge aroung in my trash and start saving all the cool plastic bits and pieces and totally make me a 'lady of the garden' of my very own.
Thanks for taking the time to tell me what you used, I love her.
