Garden Case Display

It was sooooooo much fun putting this case together!!!  I almost couldn't stop, there were so many things I found to include!!!  Didn't spend a dime, had all the elements right here.........wicker suitcase held doll clothes in the basement, printables from the Graphics Fairy, garden books in the bookcase, tons of trinkets from my craft hoard..........so whadda ya think????

I wired this graphic to the lid of the case, and this one is so perfect because it is a Rochester based firm no longer in existence........part of our local history!!



My new dollar store garden gloves worked perfectly in here.......got 5 pair, I go through them so fast.....
A little pad and pencils for garden notes and reminders.......key to the garden gate and some saved seeds......



More seeds to be planted along with bulbs and a little reminder of Fall.....peat pots and new pine cones from my white pine that produces in the Spring......



Now that was such fun!!!  It'll be quite awhile before I can actually get out  in the garden to work, its still cold, rainy, and muddy, only some daffodils blooming and no leaves on the trees or bushes!!!  Maybe next week..........thanks for stopping by!!

Hi Cleo,

So nice to meet you! Your basket is charming! I'm sure you will be out there soon enough to plant all your seeds and then sit back and await your pretty plantings!

Have a nice weekend,

Love how everything looks in your basket! How much fun! I wonder if the dollar store gloves fingers are short enough for my hands? I go through 2 or 3 pairs every summer also.

Thanks for your visit to my blog. I am so glad you did so I could see your blog! I love everything you do and we have very similar interests. This is so cute. I love everything you put in, but I especially love the seed packets. They are just beauty waiting to happen. You asked about my dining room.... it was built as sunroom, but since it's right off the kitchen and we LOVE the size, it makes a perfect dining room. Have a great weekend. Dianne
