Roberts Flowers


These are flowers made by rmurray on Garden Web (GardenJunkForum) They are made using old faucet handles. I just love them and I had to share with everyone that may not know about the Garden Junk Forum. There are a lot of crafty people there and lots to learn and create!!! Everyone is so helpful and kind and they love junk!!!! Hop over there if you get a chance. If you love recycled art that is the place to visit. You will get many fun ideas to create your own treasures!!!!

Those are awesome!! I'll check out the link today for sure. I'm curious to see what he's using to hold em' up b/c mine are so heavy it's going to take some heavy duty pipe or something to hold em' up.

I think I'll check out Brenda's link, too. :)

Thanks, as always for your comments. That fountain is so soothing it makes me want more... My dog loves to drink from the fountain so much (cats are indoor); today I saw 4 birds in their splashing around.

Thanks Brenda for the link I will check that out(-:
Jamie, I think he said he uses nuts and bolts welded on to the flower and the stem. If I get my brother to make some I will take pictures of them for you(-:

This is fun garden art. I like to pick up stuff on the street and make art from it. I usually make things I can hang on the walls. http://canyonwriter.blogspot.com.

Love it! I'm going to attend a Habitat for Humanity meeting soon which I'm thinking about joining. One of the things they do is trash to treasure as a fund raiser. I wonder if they know about these? It will be fun to tell them about it---thanks for posting these ideas.

They are pretty, and would even be if they were rusty.

Wow! What a great use for old "junk". You know the old saying, don't you? One man's junk is another man's treasure!

Sounds like you're going to have a fun time redecorating, eh? I've got so much more painting that I want to do around here it's not even funny!
