I really enjoyed writing The Upcycled Garden blog post I did last year so I thought I'd
do another one (or two) of them this year. Before you know it spring will be upon us
(hopefully sooner rather than later!) so why not get those gears turning and think about
what creative ways you can use and display unique items in your yard and garden
this summer? Take a look at this collection and let me know what you think!
