Hello, Y'all! Welcome to our little site.

What is this crazy creative place? Garden benches made from scraps? Birdbaths from clay pots and satellite dishes! Birdhouses from PVC pipe!?! Lovely gazing balls made from a bowling ball, an old light fixture, even a softball! Wonderful hypertufa creations! Spend a few minutes, hours, even days looking through our photos of gardening ideas and you too, will find the art of "recycled materials".

If you love creativity, art, and gardens, then this is the place!! Feel safe and secure in sharing your creations and in gleaning unique ideas. You will find a warm welcome here, where the only "rule" we have is to "be kind"!

About Us

If there is one defining personality trait amongst us, it’s this: WE SHARE! We work out new and different ways to create something out of nothing and then share how we created it. Someone will take our original idea and tweak it into yet another original. It's great fun!

The Be Kind Rule

Golden Rule. "Do unto others as you would have them do unto you!"

We have a "no stinkin rules" policy. This means that we welcome all gentle people. This is not a place to argue or get into heated disputes. There are plenty of forums on the Internet for that. We don't bring it here.

You will come for our ideas and our incredible albums of garden art, made from junk and other materials, and you'll stay because our members are loving, creative and supportive folks who borrow each other's ideas and build on them.

Friends, you and me....
You brought another friend....
And then there were 3.
We started our group....
Our circle of friends....
And like that circle....
There is no beginning or end.
Yesterday is history.
Tomorrow is mystery.
Today is a gift.
