Visit My Urban Garden Decorated With Found Junk

A little fairy inside a thrown away old carriage light fixture greets you at the gate of my urban garden.

While a worn chalk ware frog waits for a tasty fly to land by.

Found Victorian architectural pieces. An old window without the glass will serve as a trellis for the plants as they grow. And a white column pedestal holds a glass light globe as a gazing ball.
Here I hung an old crock full of sunny yellow yarrow in the window.Glass chips were put around the glass globe to add some sparkle. They actually look like ice chips.
Another old window and some wooden croquet balls add color and whimsy. My patio table set with a vintage picnic basket, an old iron fireplace piece and a tin watering can filled with more yarrow.

Looking to start an Occasional Flea Market in Denver

I love repurposing old found items. And I would love to find other women in Denver that would be interested in holding an occasional flea market like The French Flea Market held in Anoka MN. They are open every second Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday of the month. And they showcase several talented women like Lanette from Cottage Elements who have a keen eye for repurposing items, re-doing and putting it all together! They feature vintage chic, funky and one of a kind items. So if there are some talented women in Denver who might be interested in putting something like this together please contact me.
