Have you seen this new magazine, Flea Market Gardens? It's the Premier Issue!

I'm only showing the cover here, I don't want to infringe upon any copyrights of photos, but trust me when I say it is full of beautifully-photographed gardens!
I love using found treasures in my garden, do you?

Here is an old gate I bought at auction, home to a PINK birdie and her nest in the enchanted garden!

This chair is also from an auction; the old pail belonged to my Uncle Bill.

Old china plates and cups are at home in the garden as well. This rusty fence post was already in place when we put up the picket fence, so seemed a perfect hanger for some impatiens.

A vintage birdcage houses more impatiens, and a birdie too of course!
An old cider press, found at a yard sale, is spilling with vining flowers.

Of course, these photos of my gardens are from previous years, the snow has just now melted here (and probably more to come), but it's fun to plan and dream, especially with a beautiful magazine like this one to inspire!

P.S. I love Love LOVE this idea on the magazine cover, of planting flowers in the drawers of an old dresser! I can't wait to try this in my own garden!!

Happy Valentine's Day
I'm a little late posting... first my internet went out, and then my main computer crashed! Making do with my hubby's laptop, but I don't have many pictures on it (yet ;) Here is one I created using a photograph of mine ~~ the saying is attributed to Judy Garland.
Hope you had a lovely day!

Button Heart

I've shared this before, but this is the button heart I won, a few years ago, from Cindy of My Romantic Home.

I wonder how long it took to attach all those buttons?

Love the different types and sizes of them!

I enjoy displaying this pretty heart in our living room!

Pink Fabric Heart

Today's heart is one that was made for me by a blogging friend, when we did a swap a few years ago (Ginny at Twinkle Pink). I have it hanging with some vintage clothing I display in our bedroom.

Hope you are enjoying a lovely weekend! :)

Happy February!
Here's a sweet little box I found at my favorite shabby boutique.
