Yay! New products have arrived! Have I told you how awesome my mom is? These are great! She is getting really good at her watercolor painting. She painted these images, then photocopied them to create the tag for the seed pots. I just love the bunny and the cat (and the frog, too)...
Each pot is one of a kind since she is using found items for the handles and embellishments. I bet she had a lot of fun making these!

Below is a picture of the back of the bunny pot - "Happy Easter" with some vintage buttons holding the tag in place. I photographed it in front of this cute little mouse I have made of faux concrete. I hope buyers understand that the mouse isn't included!

Mmmm, that candy looks good - but it's not for sale either! I'm going to have to make it very clear that one only gets the pot, not the grass and not the Cadbury Mini Eggs. There is a great blog post about Cadbury mini eggs here.

I just love this photo (above) that shows a close-up of the dainty little daffodil silk flowers. Daffodils are one of my favorite flowers. Okay, maybe my *favorite* flower. When I was in highschool, my roommate and I took a paper grocery bag out one night onto the grounds of the campus and just filled it to the brim with daffodils. Which was, technically, not allowed... I mean, they DID have like a MILLION. You couldn't even tell we had picked any.... They smelled so nice in our room, and nothing makes you feel more like spring than a lovely little (or big) bouquet of daffodils.


  1. The posts are gorgeous and I think your blog looks great.

  2. These are beautiful!!!! I am just thinking of who to buy these for, or maybe buy one for me!!

  3. Eliz - you can buy one customized with each of the boys' initials.... like the one with the "E" in the top photo! I'm hoping to get them listed tonight... :)

  4. Wow, those pots are just beautiful! Definitely gets me in the mood for spring!

    Daffodils are one of my favorite flowers as well... right after dandelions, of course!

    I just posted a little update on my son, if you want to read it. If you have any specific questions re: speech therapy, just let me know. I'd be happy to try and help!


I'd love to hear your thoughts!
