How I spent my summer vacation (Fourth of July)

Introducing Baby Tinnie

Earlier this spring AppleJack and I saw a tin man made by one of the Master Gardeners.  I was smitten!  A closer look at the design and construction revealed tin cans joined together.  I thought I could make one.  We began collecting tin cans.

Tin cans, pull tabs, washers, screws, coat hanger wire

Tinnie will be living in Next Year (the garden) among the herbs, pepper plants and flowers.  July has been a very rainy month and the grass and weeds are growing like crazy.  AppleJack has collected more tin cans--Tinnie may have a friend.

  1. So very clever. You did a wonderful job. He would make me smile every time I went in the garden--even if it was to do the weeding!

  8. I love your Tinnie, he is awesome, and the fact that you put him together using parts collected is amazing. I can't wait to hear about his life in the garden :)

  9. Adorable! Add a scarecrow, a lion, a cute little black dog, a little girl in a blue dress, and a yellow brick road, and before you know it you'll be in Oz!
