Planning and dreaming has begun for this years garden. Given the fact that we have limited sun and a basic suburban lot, containers are calling me more then ever. I've been diving into Kay Maguire's book, Grow Your Own In Pots whenever I have a free moment between diaper changes and laundry. It has been a delightful read for the simple fact that it has given me some creative ideas for growing just about anything in a pot. And when you have limits as a gardener you need alternatives!
The fist thing I will be creating from the book is a designated "Italian Pot."
And with all of my garden binders and art stuff tucked in little nooks all over the house, the new work room is also being planned. A place to spread it all out and create in one space. To hang inspiration photos for projects and garden work. I look for free storage for this space wherever I can. So when I saw this sturdy box from a Christmas present I knew that I could jazz it up to hold little trinkets.
Some cool paper and twine did the job! Just a little glue and some HGTV with the hubs and this box was done in one episode of House Hunters. Free is good!
Keep dreaming folks! It's what makes life fun!
Happy Making, Baking and Growing!!!
