I saw one of these in my friend's Cape Cod garden over the weekend which inspired a trip to the Salvation Army store. I accidentally lucked out by arriving on a "most-things-are-half-price-today" sale!
Nature assisted by filling this one last night.
The upside-down base vases of both totems are sitting atop pieces of a straight curtain rod--so much cheaper than buying something. and the white looks good!
The top piece of this one is a $6 paperweight from Marshall's. The rest of the pieces of both totems are S. A. purchases that were from fifty cents to a dollar. To bring in more blue, I filled the center piece, a cruet with a nice snug top, with water and blue food coloring.
