Vintage Seed Label Containers

vintage seed label containers

Today, I thought I would share these vintage seed label containers. As the winter snow collects on the ground, I dream about getting into my gardens again, feeling the cool earth between my fingers. When I garden, I tend to save everything including beautiful seed packets that store the future bounty of summer vegetables and flowers. As a lover of all vintage things, I enjoy the thrill of the hunt. When I was at the Nashville Country Living Fair this past spring, I eyed these seed labels. Piles upon piles of vintage seed labels were to be had. I scooped them up. I had an idea for the perfect garden craft. My potting bench could use some help.

Garden DIY: The Art of Kokedama

Kokedama a string garden adds interest.
Kokedama appeared hundreds of years ago in Japan. The art of kokedama is based on the age old tradition of bonsai. Kokedama or string gardens are often created when groups of these assorted plants are hung together to form a beautiful living arrangement.  These pot-less plants are wrapped in moss and watered by soaking.  They add a fun touch to the garden hanging on a gate, from a tree or even along a fence.

Early Spring Gardening

Even though we had a bit of snow last night, I have been very busy puttering around the yard with spring clean up and getting ready for the photo shoot with the book. My favorite spring flowers are pansies. They are so lovely, especially the ruffled variety in this pansy sphere on my front steps. I just adore the blooms and they are entirely edible. The chicken love them!
