My Newest Upcycled Project
So I decided that I wanted to have a garden filled with candles. When my friends and I rented my parents old house a decade ago we found that one of my Mom's gardens was filled with candles which were probably so she could light it up at night. So we added to it and would garden in her old garden at night and enjoy the warm glow on the hot summer nights. After started the porch project I decided I wanted to put decorative tea lights all over the garden. So the other day at Big Lots I came across a bag of 125 tea lights for 6$. You don't have to tell me twice to jump at a bargain like that.
So then today me and my next door neighbor went to all the local thrift stores and I found the ultimate garden jackpot. I found first of all these adorable little Garden Gnomes.
Then I found a box of random glassware objects for 1$. I bought it and when I got home and went through it all I found several pieces for my garden tea light project. So I set them all up in the kitchen (I will put them in the garden tomorrow).
Here they all are. It is so cool to see all the different styles and shapes and colors and patterns. I can't wait to set them all up through out the garden.
