If you like shopping at flea markets and you like gardening then you will love the Flea Market Gardening website, where the two become joined in art.   Sue Langley, the woman behind the website features “Real people. Real gardens. Real projects. ”  She posts fabulous pictures of gardeners’ second hand hauls and their DIY creations.  The website is a treasure trove of cute gardening ideas.

AND!!

I’m soooo excited that SoKaN’s very own Skattur is featured today on the website!  The article is a how-to guide on how she and her husband made these wooden pallet chairs.

Skattur will be at The Cooper-Young Community’s Farmers Market this Sunday, May 11 from 8 a.m.-1 p.m.  She’ll be pedaling her garden totems and bird feeders, which of course would make a great Mother’s Day gift.  Just sayin’…

Skattur’s garden art from her Etsy shop

The Annual St. Jude Spring Fest and Gospel Extravaganza was this weekend in Millington.

Good times for a good cause.

Skattur’s display of garden art and accessories was the prettiest yet.

People toss out interesting things.

And I have acquired the quirky behavior of rummaging around in the things other people pitch out, then stacking one person’s tossed out treasure on top of another’s discarded thing-a-ma-bob.  Fanciful sculptures emerge, which I then throw in the yard.

I blame Skattur.

This coming Saturday I will drag them to the St. Jude Craft fair under the pretense of wanting to sell them….

…but it feels a little like selling one’s children.

Obviously, I still have a lot to learn about letting go.
