My Garden Idea Book

I love this pretty white cottage with its picket fence and beautiful garden.





I am determined to achieve this walkway in my garden. :)



I love this garden shed.....I wonder if I could talk my husband in to building one?




Having a wonderful living area on the porch to enjoy my cottage garden.

These are all great photos. Good luck with talking your husband into making the potting shed. I've only been asking mine for about 12 years now. LOL

Thanks for playing along today.

Hi Gail,

I, too, have stacks of pages of ideas torn from magazines - so many projects and so little time! I enjoyed stopping by.

Yeah, I'm loving the outdoor spaces! I think an urn in the front yard, a shed, and porch living area are great ideas!

That garden path is one of a kind! How far are you in constructing it? Don't forget to add birdhouses to your garden!

Wow, that cute, bluish garden shed right there will make everyone’s garden look very appealing! I guess your husband would surely be convinced of its beauty. Who wouldn’t go for such an enticing design? Well I just hope that you’ll have the garden of your dreams. Allow us to see it if you don’t mind. =)

Sweet sweet little sheds, Gail! I'd love to that white one in my back yard, too! :) Thanks for the link to Vintage Fringe, too! What a great site!

Loved meeting you, Gail - and hope to hear from you again!

I L-O-V-E the first photo. The cottage reminds me of a movie way back before. A kid and a teacher used to hide when someone creepy is chasing after them. They stayed there for hours, had tea and relax until the scary man disappears. ^_~ The garden, by the way, is so beautiful and refreshing. I’d be eager to have and spend my mornings there.

An end table in my living room. I love all my little trinkets!!!!

This is actually a birdbath with a garden angel positioned inside. I added the greenery for a halo and around the base of the angel. :)
