That was a theme a few years ago when I built my garden cottage to keep my gardening antiques in. Now that the weather is warming up, I will be able to get out to the cottage and do a makeover. Several items ended up at 1515 from the cottage. A bookcase and a table have left a couple of spaces available and items are now sitting on the day bed and not on a shelf. So when my cousin and I go antiquing she may hear me say " I'm going to get it for the cottage".
want a peek?
Here is my seed cabinet. I have collected ceramic flower pots for years, looks like the ones now are mostly cat pots on the shelves, including my cat watering can. My Dad's soil tester, vintage flower frogs, seed packets and seasonal vintage gardening magazines.
Do you still have your metal doll house? I did and when I had to clean out my Mothers house I wondered what on earth to do with it....I had to keep it!
It sits up in the eaves of the cottage. Can you tell I collect vintage watering cans, and how about the miniature ceramic flower pots.
my vintage bird cage..there is even a ceramic birdie inside...can u see him?
I have several seed boxes and seed packets, but I may move them. Do you remember why?
My seed rack that I found last fall needs to come home from the 1515 garage so I can fill it up with my seed packets.
For those of you that like chippy, shabby
My Pansy print. My 12 year old cousin wanted to make sure when I bought it that I knew the back was ripped! I told her that it was OK!
So it is going to be fun doing a makeover on the cottage and getting it all put back together. Hopefully it will be a resting, pretty place to sit and read or plan out my garden for the year.
