Garden Poetry

Posted on

Last year Paul gave me a wonderful kit for making “garden poetry”–basically a make your own brick with letters to spell out words on them.  It took a whole year, but I finally used it! I can’t wait to make more of these.  I envision bricks with the names of herbs on them to put in the garden as markers.

The rain continues…the hostas are hugely uncurling…the peas are climbing like gangbusters.

Yesterday I got my craft on with my cousin (inspired by cleaning out and reorganizing the craft cabinet.) We did a little decoupage and it was so enjoyable that I did a little more today.  A simple little oval box to keep treasures in-I imagine a horsie loving girl would like it.  Yesterday’s project was a frame that Clark had me paint pink and purple and then glue a variety of dog and fire engine pictures on. Let’s just say it’s all him and not reflective of my taste!  Kate made a wonderful yellow frame with Tasha Tudor flowers bordering it and her little girl’s name stamped across the top.  A yellow gingham ribbon was its hanger.  I’m telling you it was so charming that you’d gladly plop down money for it in an overpriced boutique! (Alas-picture not available.)
