            My daughter gave me this garden shelf for Mother's Day (yes, back in May) and I really wasn't sure what to do with it?  Dan hung it in the larger washroom upstairs and I kept pondering what to put in it.  I put in lotions and tried candles, but was worried about it catching fire if I lit them, then a few days ago, I thought...just do it!  So, I went to the Dollar Store and picked up some artificial flowers and a clump of grass from Michaels, as well as some wee battery operated tea lights that were on sale.
     With florists foam, I built up the bottoms of each square container and put in soaps and candles and interspersed the flowers in the florists' foam around them.  And, just for a little perk, put some q-tips in a small jar with a ribbon.  I feel better that I've done something with this, because I really love it, but it was an awkward piece of wall art to deal with.  Coincidentally, one of my other daughters bought the exact same piece around the same time from Winners and she is having the same dilemma I had.
