The milk jug I picked up and painted with my favorite spray paint and topped off with a web bought sticker. The bird house was one we had made a year or two ago on a Craft Club adventure, gussied up to match the milk jug, and balanced on a landscape rock that used to hold a koi fish statue. Last but cutest is the little bear I got from a neighbor that was leaving the area, hand painted to add just the right amount tacky to the grouping.
The birdhouse sign was picked out of a can during the great freeze in January, I hauled that thing all the way around the dog walk in the wind and cold. I added a little sign I bought and pounded in in the ground near my door. The little chair was out by the curb with small weather worn bugs all over it. We popped off the bugs and sanded down the sign before painting 'er up. Some fresh blue and orange flowers and we have a brand new take on an old yard decoration. These up-cycled yard items make me so happy to look at every time I come home from work. I love to see items in a new way and I hope you do to!
I hope your summer is great!
Just a little guinea pig nose to make you smile!
