Buying Garden Decor

Even though I work at a furniture store and receive an employee discount, I don't purchase many home accents or accessories at work mostly because I like to go vintage.  

This iron rooster is a recent purchase from the store.





He stands about 21 1/2" tall and has a multicolored distressed finish.  You will be seeing more of him soon when I plant my flower gardens.

I purchased this barn wood "garden" sign recently at a local craft shop.  The dragonfly body is a wood bobbin and the wings are cut from window screens.

The snow literally melted before your eyes yesterday when temps hit the 70's.  Spring has finally arrived in the Northwoods.

  11. Hi Carlene,
    What a wonderful rooster. I love the distressed style. It will be great in your garden.
    Your garden sign is darling. What a sweet idea for the dragon fly to be designed using an old spool. I have so many of those. Thank you for the inspiration.
    Happy Monday.
    Hugs, CM

  15. What a cute dragonfly sign- love that its body is a spindle! Most of my garden goodies are thrifting finds, although I've bought a few things at market. I figure that the rough weather like you and I get won't hurt the already "used and vintage" look of the items! LOL
