I admit, I am not too proud to go into the junk yards and find my treasures...I actually get excited that I can take something destined for trash and turn it into something. We have an area in the development I live in where people can dump big items for pick up, and it happens to be in the same area as the communal mulch" that I had been using for my flower beds. I had been eyeing some broken planters where the bases had come apart from the urns, but had no idea what to use them for until the other day I found this really big feeder and thought it would make a great fairy house along the creek using one of those bases to hold it up.
OK, so my first thought was IN the creek...I very happily gathered moss and rocks around it and sat back in my chair admiring my work....and started thinking....sometimes we have heavy rains... and the creek turns into a small river....surely that would wash away my fairy house. And by now I am calling it the "creek fairy house"....just so you know. lol
So I moved it,,, and the moss...and the rocks to the side of the bank and now was much more pleased that it wouldn't wash away now if we had a big storm.
I then get back up to my balcony and to my dismay I realize that I cannot see the creek fairy house from there....oh man....I feel another move coming on. But I made sure to "eye" the area where it would go so I could sit on my balcony and enjoy it. Last move? I hope so!! I also moved it a little further up the hill, just in case we get a flood, lol Now, I think a little welcome sign for the creek fairy house and maybe some wind chimes could complete my little nook by the creek.
