A Potting Shed Christmas

Potting Shed Christmas

I’ve spent more time decorating my Potting Shed

than my house this Christmas season :)


Santa came early and gifted me with a ladder to use in my Potting Shed, or rather a Hatherley Lattistep :)


To big to be wrapped and go under the tree, it’s standing in as a tree of sorts, (thank you Clare :) decorated with a few favorite birds, found nests and ornaments~



My Chickadees have moved indoors to roost~

choosing a different cavity to nest in, Williamsburg Aviary.








A Ferry’s Seeds Box

is a perennial favorite~


Dressed for the holidays and planted with a Poinsettia,

mini cypress trees, ivy, pine cones, berries and a bird’s nest.





Vintage postcards are weighing in

on Christmas with Joyful Greetings~

  13. Hi Mary! If I didn’t know better, I would swear that your shed has been in existence as long as it’s vintage treasures. You have really created a beautiful paradise for birds and people alike. I have been on a quest to find bird ornaments this year, and all I can find are super bright and sparkly ones. I am holding out for some more natural looking ones.
    Happy Holidays, and thank you for a year of beautiful tables and spaces!

  14. Mary, its just like having a playhouse. ;-) I adore what you’ve done to dress the shed for the holidays. Such fun!!! I have a vintage ladder on which I hang some of my vintage quilts. Those old ladders have wonderful charm.
