My little garden corner

As promised, here are a few shots of the second little space that I'm renting, this one with a garden/porch theme. I was in there the last couple days adding, arranging, and rearranging...you know how it is.

The dimensions of the room are tiny, so photographing the overall look is difficult in one shot. I think it looks much sweeter to the eye in person. I have it crammed from ceiling to floor, which is hard to appreciate in the pics.
These old chippy green shutters were found in the attic of my 115 year old colonial. They are perfectly weathered in all the right places. I believe they were original to the house. I have a few more of these too!
Lots of old treasures for planters, like wooden drawers, sap buckets, a coal bucket, etc. I don't know if you can tell from this pic, but the large white shelf that holds all the goodies below is actually backed with an old picket fence.

My fellow shop girl and friend Sue, gave me this beauty as a gift to begin my space with. Wasn't that the nicest thing ever? I have lots more to add but for now..........I think it's time to fluff up my first space (the shabby one) A little revamping is overdue there.

All this fluffing and feathering is finally putting me in the mood to do something with my own surroundings at home. Haven't been in the mindset for that, but with Spring comes new hope and I'm ready to roll with the changes. Until next time,

Blessings and Hugs,
Karen
