 Very disappointed.  We had some vandalism/theft at the land.  Two of my new lawn chairs, a table top candle holder, my home made lantern, wind chimes and 2 of my planters are gone. We have not been there in almost a week due to the rain.  Went to mow on Saturday and could not believe that someone would come on to the property and take  things that arent theirs. It is obvious that they were there after dark as the neighbors claim to have not seen any one other than us there a few days previous.  There were several beer cans and a chip bag so someone was there just long enough to rip me off while having a couple of drinks.  GRRR.  A trooper lives across from us and he said he saw nothing.

That's horrible. So violating.

 I have yet to find out who was at the land but have found evidence again that someone has been there. So maddening that someone can trespass when it is clearly posted.  We bought a peddle boat last year and it is on the dock leaning on its side.  Very obvious from the road. My husband hopes to get it chained to the dockthis weekend. We have owned this land since 2006 and have never had problems until now.  What is the most upsetting is that we have a sheriff across the road from us.

 Wanted to add a couple of pics of something similar that I recently made for a very casual outdoor bridal shower.  I can see this being used in many ways.  The vase was .97 at Walmart, coordinating scrapbook paper, ribbon, photo box and black flowers were purchased at JoAnnes on clearance.  I dressed 6 tables for a bit less than $20. I may use decorated cans for the next shower. The glass containers held a tin candle holder but they could be used as a flower vase.

 

 

 

The flower vases are S&P shakers.  Bought at Walmart for .97 a set. The bakers fern and baby's breath are real.  The red flowers were purchased at the Dollar Tree.  They were the biggest splurge for this project, I needed 2 bunches.
