We’re so lucky to be in an area that embraces the Little Free Libraries. This sweet example comes from Dan and Trina Wiswell in Tacoma, Washington. Dan is crafty and creative with his building skills and he built this Library to reflect Trina’s love for Micky Mouse. Check out some of these details:
The fairy door on the planter inspired the shape of the library door.
This Little Free Library is so sweet. The colors are inspired by the owner’s love for Micky Mouse.
Tacoma, Free Library. Visitors from around the world.
Packed with books for all ages. This Little Free Library is located in Tacoma. #43296
The hidden Fairy door that inspired the design.
Thanks again to my friends Dan and Trina. They crafted this Free Library and placed it in-front of their house after a neighbor kid was hit by a car accessing the Free Library just down the block. These are great folks and I hope you get a chance to check out their beautiful creation. The Library’s number is #43296.
Current plant obsession: Fatsia japonica ‘Variegata’
A Northwest hardy broadleaf evergreen. Can be grown indoors as a houseplant.
Just a quick and silly little post. These Christmas trees are made from tomato cages turned upside down. Use tent stakes to keep the base in-place and then a zip tie works to tie the “tree top” together.
Tomato Cage Christmas Trees
Wrap the cages in tinsel garland for a daytime look and add LED lights for the night. I added cedar garland to fill out the base of the “trees” and decorate the pot. So easy.
Oh, and we’re in Seahawks country, so this IS Christmas colors. Woo! Go Hawks.
As Christmas sneaks it’s way up on us, don’t forget. We have a charming little brick and mortar store overflowing with gifts for garden and nature lovers. Here’s a peak:
Crabapple and Quince. Yummy preserves hand made from Orcas Island.
Early bird tickets to The Northwest Flower and Garden Show. The gift of anticipation.
Imported from England, these Hoe Hoe Hoe Gardener’s Christmas stockings will be cherished year-to-year.
