Homes And Gardens – All Things

Contributor post by Michelle of EviesToolEmporium

Homes and gardens. Just say the words and all things homes and gardens come to mind. Inspiring home and garden items from members of the Etsy ChristmasInJuly Team and their stories fill my mind with ideas! Please enjoy!

Kelly from ColourscapeStudios shares that she’s just gotten back into gardening recently. It’s her escape from the daily mummy routine! She has started growing herbs and a few pot plants, hoping to expand out soon to more flowers and eventually a veggie garden as well!

Jennifer from CaffeinatedPapercuts loves butterflies (or flutter-bys as she always called them) and looks forward to their return to her garden every year. So when she found this fun butterfly paper, it immediately made her think of my seasonal visitors in all their glorious colors perched atop her flowers. And hey, this means she can see butterflies year round!

Veronica from AVAArtsSupplies loves these red flower acrylic rhinestones because she doesn’t have a green thumb for flowers! She has tried and tried and yet her flowers always die. She can keep a garden full of veggies growing, but those flowers… she may as well plant plastic flowers. At least those would last a little!

Amy from BeadsandThreadsbyAmy wonders what says garden more than a lovely little lady bug? She used to love capturing them at her grandmother’s house. She would give her an old Tupperware container with grass in it and holes cut out of the lid. Amy would proceed to fill it up with ladybugs and carry it around all day. The next day, they all miraculously escaped, and her grandmother would send her on her way again. Pretty sure her motivation was a) extra lady bugs in her garden from everyone else’s yard and b) to keep Amy busy! When Amy found this pattern, she thought of her. One of these towels hangs in her kitchen every spring, and it makes her smile!

Jeanne from CedarwoodsCreations observes there are all types of bugs and bees around a garden. Dragonflies have always fascinated her. They intrigue and scare her at the same time. Jeanne doesn’t think they sting but whenever one gets close to her she flinches and get spooked. They are very cool to look at though!

Sarah from BellaBoutiqe23 designed this card originally for her Mom to give to her 3 girlfriends from high school. They have been friends for over 50 years! Sarah loved the saying for them “Plant a Seed of Friendship, Reap a Bouquet of Happiness”! The paper line is from Graphic 45 secret garden line and she loves the flowers. Sarah designed each card to be a different flower to represent her Mom and her three girlfriends, each beautiful and each unique.
