Gardening with junk can be fun. 
 
 Look what someone did with this old chair.  Just let the flowers grow up inside it..  I happen to have an old chair without a bottom and I'm going to put it with this picture at the store July 1st.  It's not painted, but that could be done to suit your taste.  I love red so that would be my choice.

By the way it's going to be a drawing for the month of July.  Come in the store to enter.

How much is that doggie in the window? 
Well he's not really in the window but this cute dog frame is in the store right now. 
Also in the store are fruit jars, lots of fruit jars.  One would be great for doggie treats.

Wouldn't this be cute in a kitchen window?  Or outside? 
I love what people come up with.
