Spring miniature garden(aka grownup playhouse)

I am not a green thumb gardener but this year I plan on changing my colors.

I  have been enamored with the miniatures section on etsy, impressed especial with the hand made minis.. garden fences, tiny lamp post and rustic benches that transport you to a sort of fantasy world that you design. Adding live elements makes this world come alive in a whole new way.When when I googled ‘fairy garden’ I was inspired further by these mini worlds…the cuteness, charm, quirk and most importantly..the maintainability!

 This link gave me a place to start and lots of visual inspiration:http://goodshomedesign.com/create-miniature-garden

I wanted to create three different themed pots but when I found these houses I knew they belonged together. The houses I used are in fact functioning birdhouses made for the outdoor environment by ‘Gardener’s Eden’ and their prices were surprisingly affordable ($25.00-$39.00)

If you have any questions at all, feel free to leave a message and I do my best to answer and questions you may have.

Spring is Springing!

Made an easy valance for my laundry room window this morning using three lawn flags and some ribbon.
(I purchased the flags at ‘Fresh Vintage’ by Amy. Amy gives wonderful decorating tips “there are no rules in decorating”..Fresh Vintage is my FAVORITE place to get lost and inspired)
