Picking up several cast off pieces of seating, Donna created several charming vinnettes throughout her garden spaces. Here an old bathroom vanity seat gets a coat of red paint to really brighten up this spot; while below, a child's yard bench painted bright yellow gives a great accent seat for this charming birdhouse.

Noting how expensive the pretty gazing balls are, Donna found a substitute while shopping yard sales and thrift stores, as well as all kinds of stands to put them in - colorful bowling balls became her gazing ball garden art:
