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.
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.
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:
and it is marked Garden 2009
Give your trees a personality
Here is a picture of the packaging:
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)
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 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!
i love that plow and hearth door. we went and placed another order with collectionsetc . i bought some more bluebell lights and the solar windmill, some cranes to put near my lotus bog and some fairies riding on dragonfly stakes
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.
