Mosaic Monday

From the tank garden:

The boots above were a thrift store!  At first I was planning on planting in them, but then decided to just leave them as a prop.  I am going to give the red and yellow paint on the pop crate a coat of finish to try and preserve the colors for a bit longer.  So the plan goes anyway....

This Schwinn bike was a blue color that for some reason didn't appeal to me at all.  I grabbed a can of old primer and sprayed it and now I love it sitting just outside the fence of my garden.

 This is some yarrow that is in full bloom now.

And, these are some neat Hull plates that I used as "mulch" in one of the tanks.  The cups from the set are my favorite coffee mugs right now.

I'm linking up again with Mary at Little Red House for Mosaic Monday.

I hope you all have a great week!


  1. I have been looking forever for an old bike to put in my yard (and not wanting to pay an arm & a leg for it!) yours is wonderful!
