For the Garden




Spring is finally here! My favorite season of the year! A time to flock to the garden, plant some flowers and enjoy the birds. In the spirit of spring, I thought I'd share some favorite garden finds from my fellow Etsy shopkeepers.
The first item I'd like to share is this unique and oh so pretty 'You Grow Girl' planter drawer by Semper Nova. Not only a beautiful piece for the garden but recycled as well. These shopkeepers salvage furniture, window frames and anything they can get their hands on and re-purpose them. To see their treasures click on http://www.sempernova.etsy.com/.
The second find is from Wood Elements, a shop from Tennessee that creates hand-turned wood items such as the 'Gardening Paper Pot Maker' pictured above. This handy little tool allows you turn your recycled newspaper into seed starting pots. Wood Elements also turns out beautiful French rolling pins, biscuit cutters and garden dibbles. To visit this shopkeeper log onto http://www.woodelements.etsy.com/.
Last, but certainly not least is another re-purposed item for the garden, a bird bath and feeder made from a beautiful china cup and saucer set. Ohthepollybilities also sells bird houses made of tea pots and ceramic jars that can be found at http://www.ohthepollybilities.etsy.com/. Perfect for your own backyard or for Mother's Day gifts.
That wraps up my garden finds on Etsy...time to go out to the garden and play.
