How to Clean Your Stainless Steel Wind Spinners

Wind spinners can start to look weathered if not taken care of properly.  If your wind spinners have been moved and stored in and out of boxes a lot (if you have moved homes or just like to change the location of your wind spinner) they may get a little scratched.  You can decrease the visibility of the scratches using a polishing cloth and lightly rubbing in circles over the top of the scratch.  If your wind spinners get a little dirt on them use the same cloth do dust it off.  OutdoorMama's wind spinners will not rust because they are stainless steel so that is one less thing to worry about.  Wind spinners can look glistening in the wind as long as they are kept shiny clean to catch the sun's rays.  So if you want to enjoy twirling, sparkling wind spinners in your yard, you will need to clean them once and a while.

3 Lawn Ornaments You Must Have & Why PART THREE: Garden Statues

Garden statues are popular in almost any outdoor enthusiast’s garden. They can range from large lion statues to big cement bird baths and garden gnomes to Mickey Mouse figurines. Garden statues have represented a status symbol in the past. Maybe such representation still exists, however, there are a whole line of different kinds of garden statues you can put in your backyard today. Garden statues can set the mood in your garden. Do you want a playful fun garden theme? Choose garden statues such as garden gnomes or popular animal statues (maybe from TV). If you want a more quite reflective garden, you may want to find angel and cherub garden statues. And if you are looking to create a garden or front/back yard that represents power or confidence, garden statue lions or historical sculptures may be to your liking. Whatever the theme you should be able to find some garden statues that suit your needs.

Cherub on Column $84.95 Was $99.95

Mickey Gardening Figurine Only $34.95

Loving Frogs on Swing
When choosing lawn ornaments for your garden it’s always nice to find things that have a purpose. And some things you just have to have because it’s cute or on sale. Whatever your reasons are, bird feeders, wind spinners and garden statues are just a few lawn ornaments that can serve a purpose in your garden. Any three of these lawn ornaments are absolute must-haves for your garden. Other lawn ornaments to consider are garden planters, bird houses, bird baths, wind chimes and stepping stones.

3 Lawn Ornaments You Must Have & Why PART TWO: Wind Spinners (of course)

Wind spinners can have a lot of purposes in your backyard.  Because they come in all different shapes, sizes and colors, they are fun to pick out and decide where you want to hang them.  Wind spinners can be hung from tree branches, from hook stands in the middle of the yard or along the outside of the house, porch brackets, from the ceiling of the porch, decks, gardens, and many more places.  You can buy solar light wind spinners, gazing ball wind spinners and themed wind spinners.  Solar light spinners are wonderful because they decorate and light up an area.  So you can enjoy them both day and night!  Gazing ball spinners are a popular wind spinner as you will find a lot of gazing balls in the middle of flower gardens and such.  If you have a smaller area to work that adding a large gazing would just overcrowd it, a gazing ball wind spinner might be just right for you.  Themed wind spinners are long spinners (about 16” in length) that provide three different pictures of one theme.  For example, for a USA theme you might see an eagle head at the top, the American flag in the center and the letters USA at the bottom. These make great gifts for those who have a garden theme in which one of these themed wind spinners carry.  

Wind Spinners for only $30.00:

12" Solar Light Dolphins Wind Spinner $36.00
Gazing Ball Set Yellow/Zinc $35.00
Cardinals Theme Wind Spinner $32.00

3 Lawn Ornaments You Must Have & Why PART ONE: Bird Feeders

When I was younger and heard the term lawn ornaments I would think of pink flamingos and huge statues in the middle of a flower bed or garden. Although these are still popular lawn décor across America’s lawns, lawn ornaments have actually come a long way and consist of a variety of items today. I will discuss three particular kinds of lawn ornaments, bird feeders, wind spinners, and garden statues, and the purpose each has in your lawn.

Supplying bird feeders in your backyard provides access to one of the most popular outdoor hobbies in America, bird watching. Bird feeders are a great way to interact with wild life. The longer you establish bird feeders in your backyard, the more birds will come and go and come back again the next migrating season. Bird feeders provide food for wild birds; which may be especially helpful when food is scarce or right before migrating season or just a plane energy boost they can rely on. The purpose of bird feeders is not only to feed birds but they can also decorate your backyard. Some feeders are designed with the purpose of just feeding but other bird feeders are designed to provide food and decorate your outdoors. Feeders can be posted, mounted and hung so it’s easy to find a place for one or two.

Winter Bird House Project


Just because it's winter and you feel like there's nothing to do, try building your own bird house out of old scraps like the picture above.  The wood used in this bird house is nearly 100 years old.  Vintage chair legs make up the chimney and the columns in the front.  The top perch is a handle off of an old Victorian style cabinet.  The bottom perch is made up of a latch and chain attached to a skeleton key.  The possibilities are endless when building your own bird house; you can make it whatever you want by whatever you find! Have fun!
