Here is some of this year's yard art at Chez Funkrustico!  The fake gazing balls are made from big Christmas ornaments that I buy on sale at the after holiday sales and old chair parts.


The rusty art corner grows every year. This is the first plow that my dad used on the produce farm I grew up on in Ohio. He couldn't afford a regular tractor at first. The buoy is from my husband's grandparent's cottage at the shore in CT. The iron skillet was my Kentucky grandmother's. It cracked finally so I can't cook in it. I'll have suculents in it-it's taking a breather.


The bottom of this planter was found in an alley and the top is an old enamel pan that I painted. I used to use this as a bird bath, but since it has holes now I planted some succulents. Another recycled Christmas ball in the center.The rebar and spigot and wire creature is ...well, that's what it is!

And this is a sacred object collection.

Found object yard art is amazing! You did a great job- I love how your garden looks like it just grew all around this wonderful little space filled with forgetten pieces of someone's life. It is very gypsy!

I really like your sacred object collection... especially the Buddha statue. The whole garden/art area is so unique! I would have never thought of something like this. Good job!
