Thanks so much for the kind words. The sign is made of old roofing slate (found in an empty yard) and it says, "Everything changed the day she discovered there was exactly enough time for the important things in life."

Ali, I agree with Jan and Cindy-just beautiful work.  You are an artist girl.

Ali, I think my message went bye bye!  So here I go again...You have a great big beautiful butterfly, I love it, it actually looks like allot of work, and the lacing of the wire probably took allot of time... What is the saying written on  above your chair arrangement?

Ali, what is the sign you have with the writing made of? I like using chairs in the garden, its so fun.  Also, your Butterfly looks like it took allot of work and time?

I "rescued" this old metal chair from the curbside trash in Jacksonville, FL and schlepped it back to NC to use as a planter in my garden. The flowers are made from plastic detergent bottles.

I made this butterfly from a salvaged chair leg, some aluminum wire aluminum screening and craft paint.
