Expecting the Unexpected in your Garden or Yard

Salvaged Frames 

Funky frame
It's been quite some time since my last blog.  I'm back to talk about expecting the unexpected in your garden or yard.  I display unexpected items in my yard, especially discarded or salvaged picture frames.  Revive old frames with bold, vibrant paint.  Prop unexpected picture frames against a tree trunk.  Bold colors makes the frame pop!  It can be quite dreary during our Chicago winters, so the brighter the hues, the better.

POPS of color 
Hang funky frames from tree limbs to frame yard scenery.  The effect is spectacular and showcases the floral and fauna.  Many critters have been spotted eating their snacks on my yard frames.

Enjoy a stay-cation in your own backyard.  Many visitors have commented that they feel relaxed when they spend time in my yard.   Displaying yard decor that is inviting sets the mood and makes others want to be in your yard or patio.  Decorate your porch or yard to reflect your decor and treat your outdoor spaces as an extension of your home.

Again, keep scrounging.   Remember, there is a use for everything.
