Happy Friday!

I wanted to tell you about a find that I rediscovered today when looking in the garage for something. I put them to good use around the yard and on the deck today.

Every fall we have a town wide garage sale that supports the local Fire department. Last fall I was lucky to find a batch of hose guards that have a glass ball and either fleur-de-lis or French scroll on top; for only $3.00 each.  I bought many of them in different colors, blue, red, green and clear and stored them in the garage.

When I saw them in the box in the garage today, I decided to use them as added pieces to our garden in front of the house and in my pots on the deck.  I thought, they are so pretty, lets add them as decorations, since we never really had a need for them to be used as hose guards anyway, LOL.

I love the bit of French flair they add.
