Those decoupaged watering cans are “da bomb!” So pretty!!! franki
Mary, thank you for all the garden inspiration this dark and cloudy morning! I love all of your DIY’s. One of my all time faves is the tree bark container! Happy Friday 💚
These are all so creative and pretty Mary! Not only do you have a very green thumb, you have very skilled fingers!! I love them all!
Thanks for all the tips and inspiration, Mary! Your garden must be like dwelling in a beautiful arboretum. Happy Spring 🌷💕🌷
Mary, I’m so happy to have all these DIY’s in one place. These are all good ideas. The sugar scrub is such a quick, easy and a great gift. They can be quickly assembled with items I keep on hand for last minute needs. Happy Friday! Clara❤️
Mary, all your wonderful garden diy projects in one place. You are such a gifted gardener plus fabulous tablescapes and more. A joy to read this morning. Happy spring.
Couldn’t decide whether to pin this post to garden or crafty, so I did both! I love your compilation posts.
Such a great post, Mary. Jam-packed with spring garden goodies. Loving all the inspiration. The weather here has been so yucky I need all the inspiration I can grab.
It was 85 degrees and sunny here in Raleigh and your post sent me outside to prep my hummingbird feeders and gather materials to recreate your lovely “Bee Wreath”. Such a fun a relaxing day! I also spied your Asian noodle salad and prepared a pork tenderloin to make a refreshing new recipe for dinner! Thank you for the inspiration!
Hi Patricia, You were so productive!! It felt like summer here yesterday too with temps in the mid 80s. I hope you enjoy your Asian Noodle Salad. Happy Weekend ♥
Love this post, Mary. I love everything and am wondering why the links to Amazon are blocked out at the end of the post. I asked my husband who is in computers and he said it might be something on your end as he has checked my computer and Amazon is not blocked., Do you have any ideas? Thanks.
Hi Claire, The links are visible for me on my browser (Chrome) or my phone (Safari). I’m guessing they might not be showing for you because of browser privacy settings / cookies. Happy Weekend ♥
That was so much fun seeing everything grouped together, god knows I love my garden projects! This summer I should finally be done putting in the new garden and hence forth nothing but playing in my future. I have a few wreaths I wanted to make for Easter, I see I need to add a bee wreath soon! Played a bit yesterday in the garden, still cold, wet and nasty, left my table for a couple of hours only to return to toppled and broken glass, the garden gods are skipping CA this spring!
So pretty and inspiring! We have lost a lot of our plants and shrubs due to the recent freeze in the Atlanta area but mainly due to the 7 degree temperature we experienced last December. Lots of work to do so thanks for the encouragement.
Lots of fun ideas, Mary! You are multi talented! I have a box of broken pottery I’ve been saving to make a shard pot. Thanks for the great tutorial.
Mary, this post is gorgeous, but then again all your posts are. Thanks for sharing.
