Giggles for the Garden

While I love to garden and adore the results with the blooming flowers and tasty vegetables, I have to admit I have become soooo lazy in my old age!  Weeding and such is just too much work lately.  So I will have to get my inspiration from other places I guess.

I did spend an afternoon recently constructing these cute "Garden Giggles" through a tutorial I purchased from Gretchen Barron.  Are they not adorable?


There are actually two or three more,  but I haven't had time to get those assembled yet.  These just make me smile when I look at them!  How about you?  Here are individual close ups - Butterfly (see Christy, I used my die!), Ladybug (my favorite) and Worm:


Don't you love the hair?  Frayed grosgrain ribbon...and the whites of the eyes?  Can you guess?  Yep...the wing from the new Bird punch!

I do "giggle" when I look at these....hope they brighten your day!
