It's About Time ~


A few months ago I started making garden markers from vintage flatware.  I think they are fun but so difficult to photograph.  I should have taken them outside but by the time I thought about it, it was already getting dark.  I have stamped the names of herbs, flowers, weeds, hooker's garden, mom's garden etc.  I've also stamped grow dammit, bloom dammit and dirty hoe :)



I've also been embellishing hors d'oeuvre/butter knives with Lake Erie beach glass.


Since it's been almost forever since I've had a give-away, I will pick a couple winners Friday or Saturday.  You will receive 3 of the garden markers (you can choose what you want them to say) and one butter knife.  Please leave a comment on this post only or send me an email with give-away in the subject line.  That's it.  No other rules.  I do apologize but this give away is open to US residents only due to shipping costs :(  TO ALL MY CANADIAN FRIENDS ~ I went to the post office and I miscalculated the shipping cost, so I will include you in the give-away :)

Thanks so much for stopping by.
Pug hugs :)
Lauren

You crafty woman you... those are just the bomb...
It makes me sad to be a Canadian, lol...
I agree, you're are very generous but that cross border postage is a killer.

Lauren, I've always wanted to make markers like this, but it's so hard to find flatware that isn't stainless steel....I'm surprised you are parting with ANY of these!!! We have a sign in our laundry room that says "Dirty Hoe Garden Supply"...it hangs over the door to the backyard. You crack me up!!

Prim Gal said...

Beautiful - I was just thinking I need to mark some of my plants with their names. How perfect
