Lucky you to win that book. I think I need to pick up a copy.
I haven't tried those hummingbird feeders, but they really are pretty. I love when something useful doubles as garden art.

Amy/GoAway, I'm Gardening!

Lucky you! That book looks like it would be a good one. I like your feeders...very pretty. Also, that's a great idea for the planter. All good things...doesn't Martha say that...?


Time to buy a lottery ticket and fast! I like those finials too and think they'll fit right in with your cart nicely.

I do love the finials and the hummingbird feeders. Hopefully, the hummingbirds find them as pretty as I do :^)


You are having a lucky month aren't you? That's great that there are lots of projects you can use in the book. Love the hummingbird feeder but haven't used one myself.


The book looks like a perfect fit for you and congrats for winning (do buy that lottory ticket) and the also for your shopping find! gail


Sorry Kathleen, I'm fresh out of "Two Tickets to Paradise." Will my comment be enough to suffice? LOL

You go girl! You scored big time. Finals are very cool. What I like is that they can be painted to look formal or left to age to acquire the vintage look. I also like the caps that attach to the tops of 4x4 posts. Mine are round rather than finial but really add a bit of glam to an otherwise mundane post and rail fence.

I don't have hummingbird feeders like yours but if I did I'd definitely use them for garden art.

Isn't Tatyana a dear? Congrats on the score. Inspiration comes in handy right about now, doesn't it?

Well, good for you Kathleen! Happy February. I can just see you headed out for finials. Have a wonderful time this Spring, after you've gathered all the great ideas as future projects! :-)

You are lucky!! Tatyana's giveaway looks like an excellent book. The hummingbird feeder would be enough as a decorative feature, I agree.


What fun Kathleen, so glad you have such a fun prize! Enjoy.


I do like the idea of dressing up a raised bed or planting box. Simple but nice.

I was looking at plans for tuteurs on line yesterday. Found some I could make but none as nice as the ones on the book cover.

Congratulations on you wins.


congrats on your wins! That's so cool.
I love those feeders and I'm sure the hummers will too.

Congrats on the win! I love the finials! Garden art always makes me smile!


Kathleen girl ! You have been so LUCKY ! That book looks wonderful .. I guess I missed that whole post give away darn it !
If I mail you one of my tickets can you rub it and send it back to me ? LOL
Have fun with the projects .. it looks great !
