Do you have any of these stashed away in the garage, garden/tool shed or at a relative's house? Why not look and see what you can find. I think they are wonderful. Are you a Garden Art Collector?

The mermaid sprinkler is very cute, but I like the frog sprinklers too. What a great collection.

I wish I did have one of these in my shed, it wouldn't stay there for long, these are great! My favorite is the woodduck.
