Recycled glass garden art

Over the last couple of years, I've been collecting cheap glass pieces from yard sales and the second hand store.

I did one small birdbath which has been in my garden for a couple years. There is a solar light inside it which still lights up and the birds do drink from it.

You can just see it in the back left corner where I was doing a bit of gardening before lunch.

I brought my collection up to the deck and tried a few combinations. They're not glued together yet. I use exterior caulking.

The upside down pink one was a ceiling light shade. It's deeper so I think it'll be a mushroom. I'm pretty happy with the large one on the left with the nice glass bowl, blue vase and the larger vase on bottom. Nice finds.

Hubby hung the yard sale tiki face in my apple tree.

Another recycled piece is the sunburst clock. I removed the clock and sprayed it and now I'll get a mirror cut for it. I can't wait to hang it in my newly painted bedroom.

It's getting warmer so for now, I'm retreating inside to the AC for a while.
