Spring into Spring #5: Art in the Garden

By now you’ve all seen the mess that I’m still in from last year’s reno.  Our late spring (actually no spring) has meant that my art projects for the garden are still on hold.  Luckily our real host today

Artsy Girl Connection has us all covered.  Make sure you check out her amazing pieces.  I’m just going to show a few of the things that I INTEND to do as soon as the weather cooperates.  Oh yeah, and as soon as I have that other dirt pile spread.
I’m loving the idea of these giant pencils in my front bed. 
In my head I’ve already seen the look on small one’s face when she sees them.

I’m going to stick them out of the ground though straight up.  I found this idea here.

Small one and I are going to spend a pleasant Saturday afternoon creating a fairy garden like this one

I’ve already got the planter ready to go. 

I know that I have a friend just crazy enough to help me make these out of concrete.

And finally, I intend on having at least one of these drive-ins on a starry, starry night C:

Can you imagine doing this outside?!

    sure, i'll help you. We need some stepping stones for our garden since the landscapers destroyed ours. Where do we get those huge leaves?

    I love those leaves stamped into the concrete. Wouldn't they make the cutest stepping stones?

    Thanks for the inspiration.
