I was just wondering if any of you had any recommendations for good books, magazines, web sites etc for inspiration. :-) Something kind of like this - http://s91.photobucket.com/albums/k302/sangaree_KS/Garden%20Junk%20Inspiration%20Albums/

It looked like you are interested in yard art from found objects, which is what I am working in for my yard. For the next month a I am keeping every can, box etc my family uses, and I am finding colorful and noisy ways to use them for art and  storage. I have noticed that every time I decorate something a family member takes it. I am going to dig up a magazine tomarrow and post it to you, it was sooooo creative  and crafty it got me started back on my artwork.

Have you checked out the Gardenweb forums. They have a garden junk category.

LOVE the links!!! I am itching to make easter island heads out of a *huge* broken lamp I have that was an easter island head. He is bright orange and we called him Fred. He lives in my rock garden right now.But until the weather is not so roasting (102 degrees four days last week!!) I am going have to wait until this fall to get anymore work done outside.
