My newest garden art!

Phoenix, AZ

This a suspension spring from a old Corvair. My friend Mary over on the Southwest forum sanded it and sprayed it purple. I added the glass balls. I guess this could fit on trash to treasure too lol.

How do you come up with these ideas???? That is really interesting.

That is so cool what a great idea. Where did you get the glass balls?

Glass balls are from Evil-bay. They are glass floats used in fishermens nets. They were floating in a blue bird bath, now they have a new home ☺

I did the same thing, except I scribbled a sign on a pretty wooden plaque and put beside the coil and titled it ...My "SPRING" Garden! So many laughs and smiles come my way when others see it. I left mine black and I love your idea of the pretty colored paint. Very Nice.

Like this idea. I've got a piece of car spring I haven't figured out what to do with it, just like rusty stuff. May have to paint it instead.

LOL Fish...that's what I thought when I read "corvair" :o). Yep, it's good to revisit old posts and kick start the creativity again.

Really do like purple painted springie thingie!

I've got one of those glass balls in a fisherman's net. It's red glass so I haven't figured out what to do with it just yet.

I like it! I love that curved shape. I love objects in a garden and that one is unique and fun.
