I bought this ornamental wrought iron dress form to make a plant structure for a flowering vine.I thought I would share how it turned out. I used a Black eye susan vine with yellow flowers.

Thank You. I really enjoy this living work or art. It sits on the top shelf of my desk where I work everyday. It gives me a great deal of joy.

The glass insects on the piece really pop in that window. I hope you are making it okay through the heat you are having there. My BIL lives in Henderson and it has been hot, hot, hot.

It is in a west facing window, on the second story, and the neighbors house blocks most of the sun. We keep our house pretty cool, cool enough for a collection of plants that would never grow outside in Nevada. Hibiscus loves it in the house here I have 5 varieties each near a window and thriving.Thanks I found those pot hangers at Smiths, a kroger grocery store.

That's neat!! I was going to get a free standing tall bust like that one but I found mine in my local grocery store, they had it in stock for 3 years so it was marked way down.
