I hope this allowed! I told my mom about this site and she asked me to post these for her. Its some things she's done around her house. I think theyre great.





Her Homemade Gazing balls. She took two bowling balls she got from yard sales, painted them white, and used silcone I believe?? to glue those pretty flat marbles to it. And yes, that is a BLUE BUNDT PAN!! the blue one is sitting on! It looks like a gumball machine to me hehe





My mom took an old cafe chair she got alongggggggggggg time ago thats been sitting in her yard for years covered in rust, repainted it and turned it into a planter. I love it and I wish I had an old metal chair to do this to!!

Hope you enjoy!! Roll Eyes Grin Cheesy

Mom has got to join!  We have so many daughters that post for their moms, then a few months later they can't stand it an end up joining.  Smiley  Tell her to just skip those months & join now...hehe.

The gazing balls are gorgeous!  I have to make one this summer...they are just too pretty & easy to resist.

Thanks to you & mom for sharing!!

i love the bowling ball gazing balls and the chairs! we have a couple old cane chairs in the garage that are missing their seats.... wonder if i'm willing to let em sit out in the elements.... those table legs in the background remind me of the little bird baths we saw at the flea market.  they some how affixed old water basins to the top and i'm assuming put a spike into the other end and stuck it in the ground.
