in that same resin section, and also with the tree decorations, was this cute little knot-hole cover.

We had JUST had our trees trimmed and one cut was particularly noticeable. We put this on, and voila! I can't believe how well it matches, and it went from being an eye sore, to cute, in an instant.

Oh yeah...he was only $5, too

Your photos are PRECIOUS! The tree is perfect for the door and windows and the knot and buggy are great!

yeah, they only had a few left when I was there, and clearance items go fast...

I'd definitely recommend trying another store. I've gone as far as the Sherman store for something the other stores were out of, but you can usually find something within a few stores.

Maybe call around, and save yourself running around? They are good about holding stuff, if you ask, and they have it

Hi Sally-
The resin section is usually (at least in my store) the aisle that has all the garden angels, gazing balls, and cutesy resin statues and birdbaths.

It was on that aisle, next to all that stuff.

Where you wanting the bug or the door and window set??

I almost ordered one, too. Glad I didn't because they were $17, plus shipping.

This was only $5 total. What a deal

Why don't you call and see if they'll hold it for you until saturday?

T, I think the knot decoration is brilliant and totally cute. Tell us about the flower pot in the very first pic in this thread. Did you make them w/ buttons? It's adorable. I'm copying that w/ the cute buttons I got at JoAnns.

linda, when I've been to Dallas I always like to go the the HL on coit.

ps-

maybe this will help the both of you...

If you call, you can tell them the item number and that will help them locate the item in their store, or another store, faster.

The door/window set item # is:
6084750

and it is marked Garden 2009

Tree Decor
Give your trees a personality

Here is a picture of the packaging:

Nery-
Yes, those are buttons I got last year, at Michaels. I took some copper wire, and cut them, and then just curled it around the button loop on the back. There is moss stuffed into the pot to make them stand up, until I can think of a plant that would go there, or maybe just spray paint the top of the moss green, lol

The flower stems(the copper) was cut longer than they look. I cut them long on purpose, so I could shove them down through the drain hole in the pot, into the soil, to help keep the pot straight, and from tipping over. It is working ;0)

I SO need to get some fimo...I'd love to make some leaves to put on that copper wire to make it look more real.

I was JUST at Michaels over the weekend, but can't seem to remember the fimo.

got some nice ceramic urns for half-off, though~

I like Michael's too but don't go that often b/c other stores are more convenient. If you have Joann's fabrics, do go ck them out, they have really gotten into doodads, not just fabrics.

You are right about that!

And they have good sales, too.

Plus, when I go in there,it makes me feel sorta like someone who sews, instead of someone who just owns a sewing machine and serger and has never used either, lol...

Thanks Seedpicker. Looks like I will be going tomorrow hopefully. Now I know what to look for.

How do you attach them. I can't put nails in my dear oaks. I love them so much. I guess I could lean the door against the tree.

The back of these have a keyhole type opening in the resin for hanging on a nail.


Yes you can lean the door, but for the windows I had to use teensy tiny nails that are not much thicker than a sewing pin. I found two that were pretty short in my hardware junk box ...about half inch. I just barely tapped them in a little.

sally, my door is attached with a 4" nail. It will absolutely, positively not damage your tree and the wider the trunk the more inconsequential. A few of my hanging baskets are also hanging from trees. Hubby nailed the hooks right on the trees.

edited to add: and you have to use a 4" nail b/c the nail needs to go thru the bark and the older the tree the thicker the bark.

I know you can put nails in, but with my luck a bug would use it for a door. I have another idea anyway. I have a big old neat piece of wood. Might be a good thing to use. I will try it tomorrow.

GOOD NEWS! I did go to H.Lobby and found the door and windows and other goodies too of course. I will get a picture.

Thanks for telling me about it.

Kassia-
I would get you one! In fact, I bought the only two they had that day, and if they would have had more, I would have bought them all!

The other one is for my Mom, or I'd let you have it. But, actually since I found these, Dana found an even nicer one, and her mom posted the item number for us!

It is from Collections Etc. catalog. They show 'out of stock' online, but the gal told me that they really aren't out of stock, they just want to be sure there are enough for their catalog customers, so they marked it out of stock online only.

Anyway, it is cool! It has a solar panel in the welcome sign that lights the window in the door! And it has two stepping stones with glow in the dark footprints on them. So cute!!

If you go to collections etc., and type in the item # 1265013115, its $16.99...more than the hobby lobby $5, but it sure has a lot more features, too!

hopefully this is the direct link, but if not, type in that item #

I ordered two of the pink ones, but I'm wanting to order the bluebell ones, too.

Ha, well, my "stuff" doesn't sound very exciting without pics. I have been looking for a very small round glass container for tiny terrariums. I found some super cute and perfect candle holders of all kinds that will work, upside down, one on top of another etc. I am very happy about them.

I have been watering violets, going out to eat and putting two new Epescia's in LARGE glass bowls with tops today. I will make my new tiny terrariums soon, then you can see the new stuff.

I just did that with my e. 'pink smoke'...I had a lot of glass containers that I have been collecting at garage sales.

Now I need to get some of the smaller ones, and put them in the small ornaments. I hope they don't outgrow their globes before Christmas!, lol...

Linda-we are referencing a Christmas ornament terrarium project we were discussing on the terrarium forum.

Nice containers with the Pink Smoke. I think the pinks like humidity. I have found that.

Yes, Seedpicker has been making tiny glass ornament terrariums. I think it will make me frustrated with the tiny hole, but they are wonderful. I can't wait to make mine.
