Holy Moly!!! They are expensive. I found my ORANGE ones at an estate sale years ago, stands and all for a dollar. OK anyhoo....
I do NOT have nor will I spend 50 plus dollars for 2 gazing balls. I mean, mercy, I could get a lot of stuff at an Estate sale for fifty dollars.
Ok, so then what do I do? I went to HL with my hopefully future DIL and found 1, one boxwood ball. $8.00. Hmmmm, remember my boxwood wreath.
We looked everywhere, but was the only one. So after chemo Tuesday I went to another HL and there it was. My other boxwood ball. Yeah!
I think they look really cute. and $16.00??? Ok, I will spend that!
I put the surviving ORANGE one on the other side of the MH.
And I took a few snaps while I was out there!
I had to copy one of my neighbors.....She found the Solar Mason jar....I had to have one!
Here is a small nod to Valentine's day.....
I didn't show my Christmas gift from Candy.....it is a similar dog to Bentley....he is not a Westie, but he is white and fluffy and does shake hands with his left paw!
I put a treasured scarf on his neck that my friend Melody embroidered for me.
I got this plant at an estate sale for $6.00. My ficus was no longer green. I know this won't last long, but it added some color. The sun fades everything in Phoenix. So you can't get too attached to decor outside. It all has to be repainted, replaced about every 2 years.
Well, there you go....my big update to my yard!!
