I did it again...

Well folks, my brain has been spinning ever since I started creating things for my etsy shop again. So many ideas, so little time. I'm having tons of fun finding inspiration everywhere...especially the local flower market! I'm getting so anxious to plant things in the ground, but here in Minnesota we must patiently wait until the threat of a frost is completely gone. FROST...yikes!! It's been warm and sunny, so people are starting to put their annuals in the ground. I've always loved what are termed "Cottage Gardens", lots of old-fashioned flowers with wonderfully pale colors and frilly petals. Inspired by the cottage look, I've come up with this fantastic peat pot full of goodies. Each pot contains 8 or 9 different styles of vintage wallpaper border. These are gorgeous and the colors can't be beat! I also included 4 rolls of vintage lace and ribbon, a bouquet of vintage lily of the valley and also forget-me-nots. I then topped it off with one of my handmade paper rosettes.












You can find them all here!

Edit: Looks like all 5 of these were snatched up in an hour and a half. WOW...thank you! Looks like you're all into the gardening thing, so I'm off to make more goodies:)

Hurray! I got one! Can't wait to see it!

Bonnie said...

oh well by the time I had registered for an etsy account and waited over half an hour for my confirmation email, I went back and all were sold out! boo-hoo. Please let me know when/if you upload more for sale. I really liked the look of that! I am not sure if people out the USA can buy though as it says "Item ships from: United States
ship to:
• United States:"
Do you know?

What beautiful things and such presentation. No wonder it was gone in 90 minutes!
I've been playing catch up as my husband is out of town and I have the 2 little guys by myself the next 2 weeks. Sorry I missed out, but such eye candy to look at.

Oh! I'm so disappointed but lucky those who purchased those awesome pots. You always have such beautiful things and great ideas. I'm not sure I could even find vintage wall paper here. Maybe next time.

I love how you sell supplies, but re-create them into artful presentations. They're not just supplies.
