It's a collage! It's an assemblage! It's a thing of beauty!

My friend Gail is not only my partner in junk crime, but a crafty gal as well. I told you about her here and here. She created this masterpiece out of treasures found along the junk highway and gave it to me for my birthday.

Isn't it so festive and springy and F.U.N.? Here's a closer look...

Gail used all kinds of garden related stuff...flower frogs, a vintage gardening catalog, and other floral bits and bobs. See the tiny plate with the girl and her watering can?

There's Frenchy stuff too...porcelain blooms, the string of pearls entwined in ribbon and the jolie girl with her basket of fleurs.

Gail even included a vintage sprinkler head in the top corner! I love, love, love it!
