New Orleans Garden Art

 
Here is a photo of one piece in a garden art display at the New Orleans Botanical garden a couple years ago when dh and I were there. I love these little houses and I want some in my garden! There were dozens, raised up in the air on poles or hanging. Can't quite figure out how to make them New Hampshire-proof though.

  1. Kathy, I've been admiring that little garden house on your blog for some time now. I think they're amazing! I think we could figure out how to make them, if we put our heads together WHEN we get a little spare time, huh? Thanks for sharing this inspiration! Love the look of your blog too! I think everyone is doing a bit of blog decorating.

    These are terrific. They certainly have a New Orleans flair to them.
    I think they are very pretty!

  7. Hi!
    These are adorable! I don't think they would fit into Indiana weather either. I like the last one. Have a great day!

  11. I'll agree with the others. I like these quaint houses a lot. At first I thought they were birdhouses.

  12. Very creative. Would certainly be an easy project to make from left over junk.

    Reminds me of a fence near here that is made from stones and all sorts of cast offs. Bottles, jewerly old statures etc.
