Froggie, Froggie, a Froggie Planter

Hi there is your Wednesday going so far??? Well, we woke up to snow on the ground at 7am this morning...oh yuk...enough!!! It was pretty, but Spring needs to show it's face around here, soon and very soon. As of now, it is melted on the streets and sidewalks.
Don't you just love this happy frog???? I really want one of these in my backyard!!! I saw her on Facebook and just had to save her to my files. I am presently looking for old tires!!! I think if I had seen this idea years ago when we had our 20 acres, I would have had frogs all over the place....hahaha! My husband, at that time, collected old tires, (he thought he could sell them for the oil that is in them) so we had a pile of them in the woods.....darn, if I had only known back then that those tires could make this cute planter. See the flowers growing behind her??? Such a great idea.

Note: JP never sold a tire...he had an offer, but it was not what he wanted.....AND the guy would have hauled them all away....but no...not enough $$$$. I bet if we had turned them into "FROGS" they would have sold for a hefty price...don't you think??? Gosh at least $50 bucks a frog....we must have had over 100 tires or more. We just calculated....$1000. HA that was more then what that guy offered. IF ONLY WE HAD KNOWN!!!!

After "Rebuilding Together" has their work day here and cleans up and spruces my backyard....I think this happy frog will be in my landscape.....someplace.

Nothing much going on today, will write a few bills and pay our house taxes (or at least part of it) today. "So many bills, so little money" oh well, such is life. What is life without a little stress???

But maybe looking out the back yard and seeing this happy frog smiling back at me will make life smile back when things go wrong!!! Yeah....I need a frog in my future.

Well, time to close, keep looking up!!! Cheers ~ Louise

PS. I typed in "How to make a tire Frog" and got the directions to make "Frieda La Frog" above. So if you are interested in making "Frieda" for your own backyard...the directions are on the internet.

I think that is absolute funny. It would be a cute addition to a backyard corner garden. Hope you are getting to enjoy some nice weather there. We are having gray days...I am ready for sunshine. Blessings, xoxo,Susie

That is the most comical thing I have ever seen. Wouldn't those be cute in a kid's playground area, too? So fun! You HAVE to make one of those. It looks like they used hoses for the arms. xo Diana

That is so cute! I am so not crafty, but I think even I could make that.

Hoping it feels like spring soon - hugs!

Hi Biz....awe...maybe Jacob could make you one.

Oh my gosh, this is so cute! When your yard is done you really need to make this. Maybe hubby could start collecting tires again and you could start selling these. Put one in your front yard. Cute as can be.
