    Uruk-Hai, where were you finding those cool statues to put on the tops? They look awesome. Were they expensive?

    Check places like Big Lots. They usualy carry some nice garden statues and will mark them down toward early August. The large sitting cherub on one of mine came from there. It was originally $50.00 but I got it for 30% off. You can also go to garden centers, which normally carry a nice selection but they are usually more pricey and the don't mark them down. If you have a Tuesday Morning or TJ Maxx, they also carry statues that are not too expensive.

    The woman's bust was from Micheal's with a 50% off coupon and the large angel was as jdubbya said from a department store. It had been dropped and there was a section of the wing broken and the base was smashed. I asked the manager and got it for $20 normally $60. I glued the base as best I could and filled in the hole in the wing - it just looks more old and weathered.

    St gabriels - don't be embarassed - I like your tombstones. I always like the ones that show a sense of humor, and yours do. I've only made 1 tombstone so far this year and I went with the old line "I TOLD YOU I WAS SICK", so you've given me some inspiration

    Wow everyone has unbelievable tombstones. I hope when I finally make a tombstone that it at least comes out half as good as most of the ones posted.
