Kia hora te manno
Kia whakapapa paumamu te moana
Kia tere te Karohirohi

May the calm be widespread
May the sea glisten like the greenstone
And may the glimmer of summer dance across your pathways

Garage sale treasures for my garden

Even though the tall pot has a crack down one side, I bought it anyway as I liked the old world look of the pot. Besides it was only $1 and the crack can be repaired. I liked the green pot also, a deal at $2.

Saw this lying on it's side way in back, and offered the woman $10, she said sold. It stands just over six feet tall and is very well made. I am looking forward to deciding what kind of vine will grace this piece of garden art next year.

I like the detail on the top, don't you too?

I LOVE your new wrought iron tuteur! I've been looking online for some, but they are all so expensive, and probably flimsy. What luck that you found one at a garage sale for only $10! Great little pots too. I find a lot at thrift stores and on craigslist.

I can see a nice pillar rose on it.

The pot with tulips on it has a nice weathered patina. Are you thinking of putting bulbs in it?

The wrought iron has a nice filigreed top. It should be noticeable if the vines aren't too vigorous.

Good job! Very good deals.

nice garage sale finds. I bought 2 little flower pots today at a sale to put some baby African violets in.

Nice score. I love all three of your finds. I'm slightly jealous in fact. :)
