End of Summer Craziness(-:

Squirrel taking a look around the tree to see if the turkeys left yet(-:

Weird time to have a new bunch of baby turkeys but they did and they have brought them over for a visit and of course to eat the seed I put out(-:

A new project. I made these out of the wire basket thing that goes into the canning pot. I used wire to wire them to rebar and I cut off the handles and bent them onto the rebar for leaves. I posted the before and after picture below.

The handle

The wire "basket" thing that the jars sit on when inside the canning pot.

The finished flowers were hard to get a good picture of. The sun was shining but they are wire so it didn't show up well in any of the pictures I took. I guess you will have to use your imagination(-: They do look cute around my tree though(-:

My Dad helped weld this huge heavy D8 CAT fan onto a poll so I could put it in my garden. I am sure he thinks I have lost my mind but I think it looks awesome(-: Thanks to my husband and my Dad for all that hard labor. Getting it set into the hole and cementing it in was a breeze compared to that. It was a hot day and I think we all got a little dehydrated from that experience(-:

Cindee girl I have never seen anyone as creative as you are with such unusual materials to work with .. you are a craft artist if ever I have seen one girl !
I wish I could see your place in person .. I don't think the pictures do your projects justice!
I have never seen baby turkeys!!
To have them there must be a real hoot .. doesn't Jack want to chase them ? LOL

Don't think I've seen baby turkeys. Are they wild? Cute the squirrel is checking to see if they have gone.
Love you yard art. I have an old caner with the insert. Good idea. The fan, awesome.

Hi Joy,
Glad you enjoyed the new creations!
Jack doesn't even look at the turkeys...but the squirrels are a whole different story(-: LOL

Hi Lola,
Yes they are wild. They come and eat here everyday. That was the first day they brought their little ones that I saw. They could have been here before with them but I may have been at work and missed it.
The canner flower is easy to do with just a little bit of wire(-: No welding involved although it would be nice if I could weld(-:
