Oh Garden! How I Want Thee!

One day, I will have a garden.

My little boys (that I nanny) and I planted some seeds in small, clear, plastic cups last week, which are now sprouting on the windowsill.  I was just as excited as they were to see these little bits of life spring forth through the shallow soil.  

Oh, how I want a garden now . . .

I think I might figure out how to have one in my apartment.  
I'm thinking window box?

I've decided, that when I do get a garden, I want some fun garden markers.  
Check out some of my favorites on Etsy:

Terra Cotta markers by JustWork on Etsy

OhHelloMagpie on Etsy

Alluvial on Etsy

liciapfadt on Etsy

And, for those of you who prefer to make your own . . .

There are a lot out there to choose from, many made out of old spoons, but these shops have not followed the trend, but started their own trend instead.  I love it!

How will I choose?!

Have a great evening!  Hope your Monday started off the week well.  
I'll keep you posted on the growth of my garden project. :)

Spring Colors

Spring is on its way and given the beautiful sunshine and temperatures in the 50's here in Coeur d'Alene yesterday, one would think it was just around the corner.  The sunshine warmed the inside of my car so much, I actually turned my air-conditioning on!

Ah, spring.  I love spring.

I have been noticing many Etsy sellers breaking out the spring colors in their products.  Pretty pastels and bright colors that make me just want to sing or dance or even both.  I realized that I have quite a few items in my shop that feel quite like spring.  All are available for sale at this time.

Enjoy and stop by the shop for more great vintage!
