    Hi jhain,

    Love your pictures on webshots and was wondering if I could post on my site for the crafty gardeners community.

    E-mail me at joann@craftygardeners  and let me know.  I can send you the site and you can check it out before you give me permission.

    Mawmaw,

    What happens when you try to add to your profile? I haven't heard of anyone not being able to work it...

    I'm back....can't remember what my old user name or email was.....getting old!  Smile  Anyway, I used to love hanging out and sharing ideas here and am glad to be back.  We have a slightly weird yard complete with manniquin garden lady, old wagon wheels, old fire hydrants and a fish pond.  There are surprises mixed in with flowers.  We live on southern Vancouver Island, we're closer to 60 than 50 and have a little dog named Bella.  Will post pictures when I figure out how.  Can't wait to check out all the photos.

    Welcome Glo,

    Your garden sounds great.To post pics click on options within a post and you can download from your computer or you can post a link to an album such as photobucket. The link is nice because then you don't have to post alot of pics... just follow the link....I want a manniquin to mosaic. Was there a fireman in the family? We have an old extinguisher, probably an antique. My husband was a fireman before the wall fell on him.

    Play around with the different functions and you will get used to it  faster....

    Hi Dottie - I never thought about mosacing my manniquin - her name is Frances....I think she'd be too cute to cover but mosaics would be interesting - I'll have to look for another!

    No firemen in the family - we just like 'stuff' and they were getting rid of an old hydrant and my hubby brought it home and painted it up - then the search was on for more.....I think we've got about 5 or 6 now and we're out of room.  They're all painted and look great in the garden!  

    will post pictures soon - must be spring - I'm busy trying to organize and paint our overstuffed house - I'm in the process of reclaiming our spare bedroom and actually using it as a spare room.....hahaha

    Welcom Tonya, I think your lighthouse is great. Is that glass paint on glass? I did one a few years ago GOG... and it is still looking good. Let me know if you are indeed finished and I'll add it to our album...

    Re: Newbies, Come here and introduce yourselves..

    Hello!  I am very much the "noob" in all forms.  We bought our first house in January and are just now getting to know the yard (it was under 3 ft of snow when we first saw it).   So I'm new to the whole home ownership/yard work thing.  Up until now, I've only had a little patio to garden on and I did pretty good with some potted tomatoes and a few flowers.  But I've always been addicted to "junk".  I come from a long line of garage salers, dumpster divers and thrift store junkies.  My Grandmother owned an antique shop and my mom, aunt and I hit the local auction house weekly looking for what we call "the good stuff".  I also have an aunt who is a Master Gardener and has been waiting to pass on her knowledge to me and my daughter.  Now that we have a yard, we can't wait!!!Wink

     

    Right now we're doing a lot of clean up.  I don't think the last owners did much with the yard, I don't think they even raked past October of last year.  We have some trees to trim and two to come down, a lot of bad bushes that are dying to pull out and the lilacs in the back are taking over the neighborhood - which I'm fine with, but the guys that come down the alley are taking their life in their hands.  There is one flowerbed in the front and I've told my 9 year old daughter that it's hers.  She wants a "Fairy Garden" and she doesn't know it, but I've been collecting fairy garden stuff since we bought the house.  I have little tables and chairs, toadstools, shiney things and anything Tinkerbell might want.

     

    So, I'm very much a newbie on many levels, but I can't wait to learn.  Like today, I'm going to learn how to reclaim the sidewalk and the driveway, put in some edging and plant Irish Moss in the cracks.  I've always loved the little "trails" of moss running through concrete.

     Okay...Off to work!!!
