Keeping the greenhouse tidy

Keeping the greenhouse tidy

A old thread bobbin makes a perfect twine holder for the greenhouse.
Thread a string all the way through the bobbin and knot the end to keep it in place.
The spool of twine slides over the bobbin.
Tidy and tangle free!

Farmers Market–Please No Plastic!

I needed reusable, washable bags to carry to the Farmers Market.

Something to tuck vegetables or a loaf of homemade bread into.

This small linen towel folded in half and stitched on both sides, makes the perfect bag.

I threaded a cotton string through the all ready existing casing, now at the top of the bag.

Farmers Market-No Plastic Please!

Your new little bag can be tossed into the washing machine.

Good for the environment and so much cuter to carry!

Farmer's Market-No Plastic Please

You can use vintage towels for this project, or purchase new towels to stitch up these bags.

This sweet garden bench was made by a garden friend.  Using old headboards as the base, each bench is unique and perfect in the garden.

A perfect addition to Rabbit Run Cottage, I added a couple of vintage ticking feather pillows to take a little rest from garden chores.

Rural Practicality!

Farmer Carl advertised a chicken brooder house for sale.

After a lovely visit with Carl, I purchased the “rustic” farm building.

Not quite sure how or if it would make the journey to our property..

but I had a vision!

Luckily, my husband is handy, and he didn’t give up!

Tucked under the sheltering Maple Tree, isn't it charming!

As always, it’s a family project.

“Yes, kids–we are getting chickens and chickens are so cool”!
