These are some wonderful and varied styles of sheds, cottages and backyard structures. But it’s Garden Folly that got my heart pumping (sorry, I couldn’t resist : -) What an imaginative way to house and camouflage something so mundane as a pump.

I also used an old pie safe to hide arts and crafts in my family room.

Thanks @frenchdecor. I googled and the most basic marble mosaics came in between $10 and $20 at discount tile stores. I couldn't find anything less. But I agree with the principle of using it sparingly. I ended up using Ann Sacks Athens sparingly in my bath and coordinating with a less expensive porcelain. Although neither of these could be found anywhere near $5 per sq foot, the porcelain was about $15 sq ft less expensive than doing the whole area in the marble. So there was significant savings in the concept.

Vintage silver plate is usually cheap and looks very luxurious.

My favorite grass. Families often walk the neighborhood and I love seeing the wonder on little kids' faces when mommy shows them the "eyelash" grass in my yard.

We seeded our zone 3, high desert yard with Blue Grama 6 years ago. We leave one section unmowed and it's just beautiful, but the front yard gets mowed twice yearly and watered perhaps 3 times. It is stunning--lush and blue-green, and SO low-maintenance. Why anyone still plants Kentucky Bluegrass with the world's current water situation is totally beyond me.
