The Hermits Garden

On my quest for things to use in a garden I came across this great fun ArtFire shop! It's called the Hermits' Garden because they live way out in the country. They grow a lot of what they eat, drink, and use as medicine. The hubby (Phil) is the leather artist, and The wife (Jan) creates art dolls and folk art! Check it out! http://www.artfire.com/users/thehermitsgarden



I'll need this pony tail holder ($11 to $13 for most of them) for sure this year to keep my hair out of my eyes when I am out working in the garden or out doing anything these days.




Of course, I found another gourd! Is this not cute or what? I Love it! If you get a chance check out their ArtFire shop.

I found their blog too its a great read! http://twoconwellsplaying.blogspot.com/

I found a troll in my garden

Toot Toot was the first thing I heard as I looked down at my feet while standing in the soon to be garden! There he was driving a car...he waved as he went by and said I'm from Hob Knobby Hollow ...follow me if you dare! So I did and I was off on an adventure with this guy on the Wymzee Art Friends Blog

Thinking of a garden


I guess its the weather here... rain and more rain that makes me long to get my fingers in the soil and plant some seeds. By the time it stops I'll have to plant those little starter plants you can buy at the nursery and forget the seeds.
I have been out looking for goodies to purchase to put in a garden this year. I think hubby is going to make some raised planters then buy a fence to go around them so the deer and critters stay out. I don't want it to look like just any garden I want to decorate it. I found this great gourd from this gal (Blue Rock Gourds) on ArtFire . http://www.artfire.com/modules.php?name=Shop&op=listing&product_id=1078771

Wouldn't this one look good standing in the middle of a garden? I have a wine barrel I could turn upside down and stand these on. These are all from Blue Rock Gourds so click here to check it out better. http://www.artfire.com/modules.php?name=Shop&op=listing&product_id=691452

I have been looking at her goodies for years! She has great apple gourds too that would look so cool in a basket on a table. But I think I may buy the bird house above I really like it. I'd like to find more gourd people who make bird houses. I'm also working on a little Americana Art Doll and the traveling art dolls well more about my garden dreams later...
