Copper Plant Markers

I have completed my plant markers and I had fun doing so, here is the first one (after the reject), and it happens to be my favorite. BURSTING SUN SPRAY is it's name. All the markers have beads, sea glass, and one or two prisms in the shape of a leaf, you may have to enlarge to see the latter. Here is Fleur De Li's (a pattern), and Saddened Heart.

I am thinking of putting my own words on this series, either LIVE, LAUGH OFTEN LOVE DEEPLY, one word on each tag OR PRAISE, PROVIDE, PROSPER, PROTECT, PERFECT. CRESCENT MOON is next.


All of the markers have 8'' of twisted posts, the representation ranges from adding another 6'' to 8''. LEAPING STAR.



My package should include additional copper tubing to insert these markers into, in case they need to be taller.
What do you think about the words and the additional copper? C&G Design

I think it is a very good idea! They are quite decorative and perfect for the garden!

You did a nice job! And I like your countdown to spring :)

They are all wonderful and I like some of the names and some I don't. No 2 people would pick the same names so I guess it is just whatever you want since you are the maker.

Are you hunkered down? Boy oh boy, this has been a winter. We have had more snow than I think we have had in 5 years combined. Even with foot high storms it does not last long but just as it gets down good another comes. It is still snowing but not hard and not the wind they said we would have. Hope it stays like that cause I am very tired of the power outages.

Dawn I think you said you wanted to try Kumquats. Well the Hannaford flyer this week has them in it so guess you could get some there. I think you had some as a little kid but very little so I guess you don't remember them.

They are wonderful Dawn! You did such a good job of making them. Sure thing on the extra wire for extensions...

You ready for more snow? The weather was reporting more coming your way. I hope you Jean and Kathleen stay warm! You are lucky to have your crafts to keep you busy and inside...

These are wonderful! I like the idea of the words and the extentions. I relly like the fleur de lis. SKeeter, I am in the house today...sipping hot tea, and crafting. Dawn, how are you making out on this snowy day? Hugs, my friends, Kathleen

I'm doing ok, we got about 5 inches. A close one as the news kept saying a foot. I think the coast got it this time. It was snowing in Portland long before here, sill....we won't see bare ground until late April :(
Mom, I'll have to check out the Kumquats, I know I love Kiwi though!

Those are great. I noticed they are in your Etsy shop. Will you be selling any separately?

Dawn said...

Protector of Vintage, I truely had not given that a thought, maybe I should edit this on Etsy to add that singular ones can be custom ordered. Are you interested in one? I would sell one to you with exact shipping. I don't keep on top of the shipping with Etsy. I had a order within 7 days of a holiday and had to pay bucks to get it there on time. Guess if your high for some, it evens out with others.
