That is a unique, clever piece of art for your garden. I may have to copy you...Remember imitation is the sincerest form of flattery!

That_Is_Super_Cute. It made me start laughing...which is a most sincere compliment to you! Now get busy and make me one :-)

Into the inspiration file it goes (with your name as the filename of course, so I can always give credit :-)

This is made of junk I found. The fish is a pitcher and all of the other things are candleholders just glued together. I just happened to find the right colors to kinda match. Thats it! I put a big plate on the bottom to stablize it and covered it up with mulch.

RE: My first totem for my garden

Boy, I don't think I would give those individual pieces a second glance if I saw them--I would just think they were tacky clutter but you have combined them and made them SUPER CUTE . I am sure it is not so easy to pull it all off and make it look so folk-artsy. I am going to have to 'retrain' my definition of what is and is not usuable junk. Great job!

kat4kittens - please read the posts above yours - she did not paint the totem, she glued different pieces together. Do a search on this forum on totems and look on the faq page as well - Welcome

This Totem is such a "happy" piece. you have to smile looking at it. What a great eye you have for putting stuff together that most of us probably wouldn't have looked at seen individually. You are the reason I looked for a fish for my first (cobalt) totem. I still want to find colorful pottery stuff to make a totem with.
Keep creating, and posting photos.

I found a small fish cup, so my copycat totem is smaller. Just finished putting it together last night, guess I need to wait a day or so to put it out - doesn't the geII have to cure or something?
Wish my digital wasn't broken - actually, it isn't broken, but our computer is so old and so full we can't download any pictures - we have ordered a new one. guess then we will find out for sure if the camera works or not.

RE: My first totem for my garden

I glued a big heavy plate on the bottom and cover it with dirt and mulch..Hasn't blown over yet.
