**ViNtaGe Garden Collectibles**

My love for "ViNtaGe Garden" started out many years ago when I lived in the Desert of all places!!!  It began with WATERING CANS and "branched-out" to other garden related go-withs...  I have my computer/office area in what I call my "Garden Loft"...  I'm surrounded with a good number of my most cherished vintage garden pieces...  Here are a few pics I'd like to share with YOU!*!*!  (click on pics to enlarge)


This is a rarer seed box...  I paid an insane price for it years ago on Ebay...  The RICE'S SEED PACKETS are also a "rare-find" - another Ebay purchase many, many, years ago...  Placement of vintage paper/ephemera is very important ~ you don't want "daylight" to fade them...



 It's rare that I buy a watering cans these days ~ It has to really be something extra special...  This little mustard-colored beauty was a recent "Door County" find this summer...



I love staging small pieces of advertising ephemera on/in flower frogs...  I think it adds just the right touch...



ViNtaGe Seed Jars...



Rochester, New York had many a seed box...
OMG!!! THIS SAME ADVERTISING SEED BOX has a "Full Page Spread" in the latest edition of COUNTRY GARDENS MAGAZINE - Fall 2010 Issue - JUST OUT...
Page 48...  Check-It-Out!*!*!



And lastly ~ ChiPPy!-SHaBBy! Shops KANE COUNTY FLEA MARKET this weekend!!!  YES - I still have some cash to spend...  If you happen to see me there ~ grab me and Say Helloooooo!*!*!

  3. You truly have the BEST garden collectables! The seed boxes are to-die-for! I love the flower sprinkler that your husband had gifted you with in an earlier post. Your watering can collection is sooo much better than ours :) Thanks for sharing, I love to see what others collect.

    Hope your ventures are doing well, you seem a little happier, Tamara x
