Category: Garden Totems | Posted: Fri Apr 25, 2008 3:16 am

I could now officially be called Junkie Jo. I cant tell you the last time I went to a thrift store..until now! Thankyou fellow Stewbies for making me a junkie. I'd like to thankyou by name but without going back and reading old post I'd be leaving someone out and not giving credit where credit is due. You know who you are..all you thrift store garden totem people!

I had to do some garden totems after seeing the ones here in the stew. Yes, I was admiring your thrift stores are a blast! I've even developed an eye for totem possibilities. I even, will proudly admit, that I now know what day which thrift store offers additional discounts. So hows that? Am I a fast learner or what! I have two boxes of glass now so more totems are forthcoming.

My sister went home with 1 of my totems but here's photos of two.

I'm drawn to the amber colored glass. I've picked up alot of it along with greens and blues and of course the clear.

Because of the Mean ol'Cat I got these sweet little birds because real birds know to stay next door.

This blue one took a spill during the hail storm but I was able to repair it. I was lucky I wasnt having to replace glass to the tea cart it sits on. (Disregard the project piles in the background. I'm famous for starting to many projects at once.)

Hehehehe, another garden junker has been created.

Very pretty totems, I have looked for things to make one with but haven't found just the right things.
I have made a coffee cup one tho out of cups I had in the cabinet.

Those are really beautiful, and the birds are perfect for the tops!

They are so pretty. You've got a totem talent for sure! I'm glad the blue one wasn't ruined for you.

Oh dear not another junkie!!! LOL (Joann PM Frank and see if you can change your user name 'cause I think 'Junkie Jo' is fun and will really suit you now you've got the habit.)

I really love your totems but the blue one is my favourite and I would have it in my garden any time. The birds are just the right finishing touch and you've colour co-ordinated them really well. I look forward to seeing all the other totems you're going to be making.
Happy junking!!!

Great work Joann. I love the colors and the birds atop. I too am one who always has too many projects going at once. LOL! Thanks for sharing. Keep up the good work.
