    Circles make for a interesting garden gate

    The same homeowner that has the metal tree (earlier entry) needed a special garden gate to the backyard. Using some of the tree's geometric design, we created this custom gate. Over time, the gate will also turn a rich rusty brown...a perfect look in the garden.

    A simple locking latch is easy to open.

    Metal tree sprouts from azaleas

    Nature is painting this sculpture a beautiful rusty orange and brown. Its geometry looks nice against the house and the surrounding garden. The vintage farm implement adds a pretty touch of green to the scene.

    Elementary school Little Free Library debuts

    What a gorgeous day to read and share books! Today was the unveiling of the Madison Place Elementary (Olathe, Kan.) Little Free Library. The library is a legacy gift to the school from the 5th Grade class. The library showcases the school colors and their mascot: a maverick. The kids gave me drawings for inspiration, lots of horseshoes and horseheads. I incorporated the horseshoe...it spins!

    The Library can handle lots of books. The kids placed almost 80 books in it today.

    The Library is close to a new neighborhood. Perfect for walkers to check it out.

    Fun to have all the kids gather around the Library for a group photo. Thank you, Madison Place Elementary in Olathe, Kan.

    Beautiful entry railing is complete

    Wow. I'm glad to finally get these twin railings installed. These are huge. But for the location, they are perfect. These railings are almost 10 feet long. I cut a steel plate to reflect the design of a tree and a bird. The entire project was powdercoated in a wrinkled bronze finish. The railings are installed using expansion bolts into the concrete. It is sturdy and ready for use.
