Bless the Blooms

June 19, 2013
In my backyard by a old dying birch tree, I set up an outdoor vignette, mostly in neutrals and foliage plants.

 Remember my Shabby Chic crosses from Easter?  They are made from a vintage level (tool) and vintage door knob plates.  For garden use, I put a thin metal rod in one end as a stake.

A couple old half barrels filled with sweet potato vines, bacopa, creeping jenny also topped with a galvanized pail planted with pony tail grass,

 Flank my recent old barn door purchase.  

(I am so happy I got this door) 

The door is attached to the tree so it doesn't blow over.  A simple grapevine wreath hangs over the window.

My framed lobelia is close by hanging from the birch tree.

Kind of a serene spot in my Organized Clutter life!

Thanks for reading my blog, Carlene

  14. I have 2 old barn doors that have been laying out back that I scored from a friends farm. I just haven't decided what to do with em. You gave me an idea!! You should link this in my DIY Showcase Link Party I cohost every week!

  16. Oh my friend, I am drooling over that barn door! Everything looks so pretty. I have neglected my yard slightly this year. Especially with being gone so long. Can't wait till my trees are big enough to hang things from. Thanks for sharing with SYC.

  17. Love the old door in the garden! What a beautiful yard you have. I'm visiting from Funky Junk. I'd love it if you would share this at "What We Accomplished Wednesday," at Green Willow Pond, if you care to. It is live Tuesdays at about 6:00 EST. Have a great week!
