Home Grown Spring Projects

Hello gorgeous weather and hello, to all of you! I know it's been awhile since I've posted, but I am still here.... Just busy tryin to stay busy...Wedding planning, family time, and design clients + spring projects.

Well, I have fallen head over boots for terrariums. This is our own personal home collection, but I will tell you that Mr. Will confiscated a lot of my vases and apothecaries that I use for events from my storage...and he has filled them with dirt, seeds, moss, water, and sunlight. Syl has been spraying them with water when she pleases. She has also been giving drinks to all the furniture in our house.

The cool thing about the terrarium vignette shown, is that the containers are all sitting on a low harvest table that was recently found along the curbside {Free!!}. It's primitive, but I really like that it has a pretty dove coat color stain. We covered it with large atlas pages from a yard sale for the cost of just a few quarters and then 'tablescaped' it with different things...cedar discs, garden books and river rocks. Just this last weekend, I used these apothecaries and fresh green sprout containers for a bridal shower. They were a hit. Janet Pearson {The Orchid Lady} added some beautiful pussy willow branches to them... a detail that no one else would ever think of. Seriously!! {I'll post better pics when I receive them.}

Papa and baby Syl have been prepping our back yard garden and pouring over the Baker's Creek Heirloom seed catalog. It's good to see them working together now. Two years old is a good age to start the chores.

I'd love to hear from you, my lovely readers. What are your plans for spring?
