miscellaneous nonsense

Just some random photos of little mini-projects. One of the "e"s from the peace sign was lost for months but surfaced, literally, when I cleaned up the old chasmanthe leaves near the kumquat tree last week. The letters are made of plywood so it is amazing that they haven't fallen into untidy, unrecognizable masses of pulp.
Then I read an article about a Corvallis gardener who turned two old toilets over and made a bench of them. Since I only had one old toilet, it became the base for a birdbath and a concrete stepping-stone thingy for a potted plant to live on.
What is the easiest and most economical way to refinish old lawn furniture?
What to do with a broken glass hummingbird feeder, some bamboo, and a cheap hangydown from Walgreens.

Your vintage lawn chairs look great just the way they are...I wouldn't touch them! How were you so fortunate to get four of them? Shabby is "in"! :-)

A few years ago my friend and I went "dumpster diving"..folks were putting their stuff out on the roadsides for the yearly free garbage pick-up and we spied the chairs. The owner was there and said that we could have them all. I think there were 6 altogether which we somehow managed to cram into her van. We really felt we scored!

I like the peace sign. I'll have to try something like that.
