So I bought this palm tree with hammock wine bottle holder the other day and showed it off in the "useless appliances" thread.
Well, I decided use it in a little summer beach scene I finished last night.
I bought some play sand at the local home improvement store (50lbs for a buck!) and built a small wood border to keep the sand in place. Then I added some accessories I had on hand.
The beach chairs and carton of Coke are actually christmas ornaments I got on clearance. The little camp fire and marshmallows on a stick are from a Muppets "Frog Scout Robin" figure by Palisades.
It's kinda like one of those Zen gardens, but I don't have any miniature sand rakes. Pretty cool, huh?
