Default Show us your Junq'ue art !

I was looking in on another thread when the topic suddenly turned towards garden art. Bed frames,flamingos,Tires,and other oddities were being discussed. When someone mentioned how tacky the toilet planters were -I jumped in..." I have toilets in my yard." I announced proudly and continued on.... "Not only one but two!"
I led them on for a while and insisted my toilets didn't deserve the royal flush just yet. I needed to take some digital photos for them to see my beautifull partava potties. I stalled, telling them my intestines were churning looking for you know what..... the photos! I had fun playing with them building up their anticpation. I now present them to you............

- Lily Pew Shun-
I created by using a twisted drain pipe

- Calla plumber-
I created by using part of the bowl

NOW IT'S YOUR TURN
Show us your recycled junk!

I decided to flush myself out of that area
as I was overflowing with more Junq'ue art to post...

Your toilets are not bad looking. I honestly wouldn't want them in my front yard but that is only because I am more traditional in my choices.

"Bed frames,flamingos,Tires,and other oddities were being discussed." I have something to submit in the oddities department.

You two have cracked me up! Hava, not only have you made something much more beautuful than I expected, but those titles! hah!

Equil, holy cow! Rolling on the floor laughing! Is that a yard near you somewhere, or a picture from online?

Alas, I have nothing to share yet, aside from a tarp-covered pile of dirt and a couple of planters made from kitty-litter buckets. However, I did discover among the other trash left by the previous owners behing the shed a red bowling ball. I am trying to figure out what I can do with it in Gabe's Garden.

Hey! Don't pick on how people use sofas. That one isn't in a landfill right now. That sofa was from an email but... there are people up north that have couches hanging from trees for tree swings.

We take our sofa out of our living room and put it in the back of our pick up truck to take the kids to watch fireworks every 4th of July. The sofa in the garage is too big. Since we started doing that other families have started. You can park the pick up sideways and pile in with blankets to watch the doings in Powers or Spalding from the comfort of your own sofa. Depends on where they are having the doings. Each year a different town does doings. Last year I think they were in Stephenson. Then we go to the doings in Iron Mountain. Our friends have an earth house. That is a bring your own seating doings too. Think of all the sofas that aren't in landfills getting a second life in garages for annual doings.

Ya -they use them for bonfires too. I bet it's real comfy after it rains. I wonder if you could grow tomato plants in them. Better yet potatos! Just lift up the cushions and harvest.

Why we would never use a good sofa for a bonfire or to grow potatoes. We have a collection of them in the garage. The mice love them. We find their nests in the cushions.

For a bonfire- Not in it! Wondering how you had picked on Spaulding Powers and Stephenson. You look me up on a map? I forgot I had filled in my location. I have a swinger I made out of junk I'll go get it.............

Are you sure you're all there? Sound like you might be swinging in the tree next.
