RE: Check out my LEGS!!

cool idea. was wondering though. are they heavy enough to support the mosaic pieces?
as i see they are hollow plastic. are you going to fill them up with concrete or something to make them more solid and heavy?
i have to start looking for things like that... that i could also mosaic :)

I could fill them up, but don't think I need to. They have heavy magnets in the foot and the plastic is pretty hard. It's not bendable at all.

Hey emtnest, Great minds think alike I guess. The Gottschalks here has them for sale too but a few weeks ago they were still way more then 5.oo I'm so glad I saw this it reminded me to go check again. Hopefully they have lowered the price. I'm going to town tomorrow and I will have to stop by. Great idea with the lights. My husband already thinks I'm nuts, he may have me committed if I come home with body parts!! LOL

Hey, EMT - pretty cute. I spray painted mine gold, put gold shoes and anklets, and put them upside down in a flowerbed just inside my back gate. I have the arms that came off the mannequin, and so far, can't think what to do w/them. I could fashion a lamp, I suppose, but it's so far down the list, I'll probably never get to it. We'll be watching you closely, so in the words of KAT, I think, "don't dawdle.

RE: Check out my LEGS!! - and

I took a photo at daybreak - rather darkish, and also an update on how the toidy looks w/the Hosta I planted last fall. These two photos are in a new album I created - Garden Junk. I'll be transferring other pics to it in time. Don't think I should post a picture to your thread - - the subject police w/get me.

Love your legs gal. The solar lights are a good idea. Could also do a plant holder using either a round or sguare top. Either way, I think you got a deal.

RE: Check out my LEGS!!

Slow those legs of yours are too much!!!That's the same idea of what I want to do, but with mosaic on them...very cute!
