Inspiration without application is moot.

Okay...!
First off I got in a huuuuuuuuge box - it was massive!
Inside were these copper garden art for me - a rain gauge or candle holder - I am thinking I will go with rain gauge since I can't tell you the last time I got to light a candle - I think it's cool and brilliant!/quote]

This is one of those times I wish Craftster could let everyone quote with pics. But I do understand. Wink

But these little yard decorations just rock so much.

I got a great package from craftydeb today! I got a cute gnome plaque and some pot hanging gnomes. I also got a book, windchime, some morning glory seeds, gloves, a yard stake, about a million wood burned plant stakes for my garden, and 2 flower flat carriers, which are (i assume) machine embroidered. They are really great! Thanks for everything Deb! I love it all!

Here are the flat carriers:



A lot of the loot- I can't wait to start reading that book!


the gnome plaque- probably some of the best woodburning i have ever seen!


the wind chime- what a cutie snail-


and the plant stakes. all wood burned! I had to tell her all the things I was planting in my garden and the number of each and she made a stake for everything!


Thanks so much Deb!

It WAS super quick!  I received today!

Here are the pictures of my new beloved gardening supplies:

My package has a "guerrilla gardener" theme, so that I can sneak around planting things in different places. All told, the package (encased in pretty pretty tissue paper!) includes a cute gardening apron with really well-done hand embroidery, a trowel that I think is hand painted on the handle (it has measurements on the spade part! so cool! I am the world's worst estimator, so that is a great feature), a gardening ski mask with cute felt applique flowers, some gorilla seed markers that I can't believe she made they are so amazing, a neat decorated tin case with mini seed holders and a key for them, and some seed info. So neat!

Here is a closeup of the markers, the embroidery, and the case.


Here is the inside of the tin. So neat!

There was also a sort of spice shaker type of glass bottle that had a seed mix for mesclun greens, but I forgot to photograph it cuz i had already squirreled it away in my apron. Mmm Mmm Mesclun greens!

Thanks so much Melissa, I love everything!  I can't wait to plant things both in my house and in random places I find! No lie, I am wearing the ski mask right now and really enjoying it. I never would have thought to decorate one, but now I think my whole family needs some. (We occasionally ski, but are not nearly stealthy enough for my standards)

Maybe my favorite is between the apron, the trowel, and the seed tin. Although the markers make me feel really aggressive, which I am enjoying. Especially in combination with my ski mask.  This kind of makes me want to commit actual crimes.  Except I'd probably giggle the whole time and mess it up.


Thanks for such a great swap Melissa and Rira!

I love personal swaps, accessories, disguises, animals, riding my bike, pen pals, and the Lone Star State.
