I've been looking at your other works of art.... I must confess I've been more mesmerized by the pictures of the artwork I missed the adhesive name......

I like the plant stands...... but the totems can go anywhere in the garden.....

Palm Bay, FL(Zone 9b)

Thank you again vs :) I still love to create the stands and large totems but I'm really loving the tiny totems the very best. They are something anyone including older people can move from place to place with ease. Tiny vases, candle holders, and doo dads of all kinds fill the thrift and dollar stores and garage sales and flea markets. Normally they are just a bunch of dust catchers in the average persons home. It is so much fun to turn them into garden art. No two alike makes them even more special. :) I hope you will build your own and enjoy the fun of it all. .... vicki

Vee8ch is that glass irridescent (sp?)? That is gonna look so awesome. Or is the glass called opalescent, I can never remember. Next time you are taking a pic, will you take a picture of all the totems together? I really want to see the variations in height and style in relation to each other.

You are definately the totem queen! I haven't been to the DT yet, but I need to go there and look for glassware, you have gotten so many wonderful pieces. And for CHEAP...which is the best part, of course!

Palm Bay, FL(Zone 9b)

Yes it does have an irridescent finish on it. I found it at Goodwill for 99 cents as I stated above but under the gwill sticker there was a Dollar Tree sticker. I saved a whole penny by getting it second hand. lol!
I don't want to be totem queen. I wish others would start posting their creations so I can stop feeling so obsessive and like a totem wierdo. It's lonely out here!
Yes Trade I will gather a group of my totems together in a few days to show the different sizes. :)

Vee8ch ....I immediately thought about you when I saw this link for someones garden. It is under the Garden Art forum. Look at the additional pictures by clicking the postage size pics on the right. Cool stuff!
Her link is in the 6th post down, just after the picture of the pot lady.

Wow Sheila! Thank you! I love how she displays her clear totems! She has lots of neat things! I love it all :)

This is another tiny totem ... 17" tall
Not very fancy but the teal colored glass should look great in the sunshine. Kind of reminds me of a mushroom. The topper is a Dollar Tree porcelain kid but her hands were originally empty. I added a clear marble and an old butterfly earring. Total cost about $2.25

how funny, I have that earring!

Palm Bay, FL(Zone 9b)

What I especially love about her totems is that they are made of very delicate glass. I've collected a ton of really gorgeous delicate wine glasses etc and I can't wait to put them together. Your link has really encouraged me! I think that is good .... but you are feeding a totem monster! rofl! ... vicki

Now you too can build a totem Lulu! ... hee!

Palm Bay, FL(Zone 9b)

I wouldn't part with mine either if this pair didn't turn my ears green. ... and I lost one of them a long time ago. :) I love butterfly jewelry too! I love butterfly everything!

Love the finish touch of the marble & earring

Tulsa, OK

I would love to be able to look at an object and see other uses for it. What a great idea. I am a junkie for all the craft shows on TV I would love to have that inner eye.
