I've seen sculptures in backyards that are quite breathtaking.
When looking on the Internet for ones I liked, the prices almost made me keel over.
"Forget sculptures," I thought but immediately nixed that statement.
In the supermarket, I spotted a big angel with a lovely wingspan and pretty, "angelic" face.
Unbelievably, she was on sale for under $17! All she needed was a couple coats of white paint. Done!
A stop at a Christmas Tree Shops netted a pedestal to put angel girl on. It was also under $20.
Lastly, I had seen mirrors used in gardens on Pinterest and on Carolyn's beautiful blog, Aiken House and Gardens so decided to be on the lookout for one.
Truthfully, I never before thought about putting a mirror outside in the yard.
Found one in a thrift shop. The tag read $25 but a lady there sold it to me for $20.
Hubs used Gorilla Glue to attached angel girl to the pedestal. I painted the mirror frame white and hubs hung it from a fence.
We placed a few plants near her, a small table with a flowering plant and the angel sculpture is now a reality.
At night, a candle glowing near her makes her even more beautiful!
Final cost was a tad more than $50 which sure beat the $2000 to $3000 sculptures I loved!

HAVE YOU EVER USED A MIRROR IN THE BACK YARD?
