Friday, October 12


Every garden center needs seeds to sell.  I found Joann L. Swanson's great tutorial for building and decorating a potting bench. Part of Joann's tutorial is making seed packets. Joann even shares a great printie for the seeds. :D

Then I found this adorable real life antique seed packet display at Country Anthroplogy on Etsy.

I'm going to try making one in miniature.

I saved and printed Joann's seed packets. Then I used the measurements from the Etsy listing and cut my wood to scale.  I hope this will go together correctly?  We'll see....

My alarm is going off, so I have to stop and get ready for work.  I always wake up about two or three hours before the alarm time. That is my time for minis!  Hope you have a good Friday!

Joan's printies are great! I used them for my potting shed.
Great idea making the seed case.

What a clever idea to use the inspiration and measurements of this delightful piece. I will be very interested in seeing the finished article.

I love your print out seed packets. They are so colourful. Looking forward to seeing the compartment box finished and the packets installed in their little space!
