I get to toot today! YEAH!
Well I have had a couple of friends asking me about my chandi I bought at a yard sale for $3 and where I decided to put it. 
Of course the Lovely Grace from Growing Old with Grace gave me the idea and I feel in love with it.  Here is where I put my chandi.

I love it there. And you talk about really being pretty...I put some candles in it one afternoon and just as it was getting dark I lit them and my husband and I enjoyed watching the glow. 
(His first thought with the whole idea was, this is silly) that is until we got it in the tree and then he said, "well now ain't that about cute". (LOL) 
Here is where I originally got the idea from:
Here is her chandi... 
 I got my own piece of heaven going on by the pond. Don't you just love my red bird feeder on the red pole? Took a piece of PVC pipe, spray painted it red and used some nail glue to get the little red bird house to stay on top and wala!
Looks right cute beside my little bridge and plants don't ya think?
Love this old tea pot. Found this years ago at a yard sale and the gal wanted $10 for it. Which for this particular piece that was probably a steel as it is very old. However being the cheap frugal  person I am I offered her $5 and she took it. Done a little research on it when I got home. Found out this piece was def. a vintage piece and worth more than $5. Love it!
Who says you can't have a clock outside?
Had this little teapot clock for several years and thought, why not use it outside..."Think outside the box" right?
What is really a hoot is when hubby and I are outside and he will say, "Reckon what time it is? I will tell him, "Go look at the clock by the pond". Then we both laugh...yep, it doesn't take much to excite us! LOL!
Got to have a few pieces of dishes you know in my little spot of heaven.
 Join me sometime...we will have tea for two!

Good old clearance piece from Cracker Barrel. 

Don't you just love my little bridge. I have had this for years. Bought it at Big Lots. It has served many purposes for me.
Since I have taken these pics two of the plants have already been re-potted because of the growth. You should see them now! 
We have the cutest little humming birds. But I have found out those little cuties can be mean! They will actually run each other off from feeding! Fun to watch them though.
Another view of my chandi!
I hope that you have enjoyed my little piece of heaven with me today! 
 Hugs and blessings, Cindy

  8. Your little piece of heaven is perfect. All the elements for a cozy place to enjoy the outdoors. Great little bridge and the red bird feeder is an inspiration. I always wanted to put a chandi on my back patio and hubby laughed at the idea too. Should show him yours. I would love to be able to sit in your garden and share a cup of tea.
