Little Garden Apron



I've been spending some time in my garden... getting it all pretty.
Everything is growing.
So far.... so good! (fingers crossed)

I thought I would make myself a little garden apron.
Look at this pile of inspiration!
No! It isn't a mess! LOL!

I laid it all out with a rough plan...
It never turns out the way it starts.....

This is how it turned out. It was all bits and pieces.
Yet another little project to help use up all of those
scraps that you just can't throw away.


My new little garden sign. Isn't it cute?


Little doily flowers!

Not fancy but perfect for the garden!

I'm joining Susan at Between Naps on the Porch for Met Monday.
Make sure you go by and see all the great projects!

Great blog ~ and apron idea. You are also super clever with photography, I love how you capture your idea just perfectly with your angles, lighting, setup, etc. Great job!

Jessica said...

Shut up!! how adorable is that. first of all, i am jealous of people with green thumbs. i just have never really done any gardening and am afraid because of my lack of knowledge, to start! second of all, i would never think of starting a garden without one of these little cuties!! GREAT work :)

thanks so much for stopping by my blog as well, come back and see me soon :)

Liz, thank you so much for stopping by my site and especially thank you for leaving a comment. Making new blogging friends is always fun and always welcomed!

I love your new garden apron and sign. I enjoy working in the garden/yard also. I just trimmed my rose bushes yesterday and I've got the scratches to prove it! We've had so much rain this year that my yard is out of control. I've got my work cut out for me!

I see you're in Phoenix. My daughter is a junior at ASU!

Take care and have a wonderful week!
Linda
