~ Garden Boxes ~

I love looking through my vintage & antique garden catalogs this time of year...
they inspire me to create new, 'old' things such as these Garden Boxes ~

the black & white graphic are just perfect...
the detail of their engravings are beautiful.

I especially love the one of the man picking field-peas...
and how the wording is, so elegant but folky.

you could use the boxes to store seeds, garden gloves, old photos...
I use mine to hold last year's flower seeds.

these are almost finished...they need to be aged a little more,
then they will be packed up along with my other offerings for the
this Saturday...

I'll be working on the shop today, packing for the show & hanging needlework models.
we will be CLOSED Friday Jan. 13th & Sat. Jan 14th
for the show ~

I'll share pics of the show this weekend :)

blessings from the farm,


  1. hello dear, these boxes are so sweet..
    good luck for the show..
    hugs cucki xx

  2. I love your boxes and would like to make some, but don't know where to purchase the boxes.

  3. Hi, Lori - good luck at the show.
    Your version of a vintage style box is really nice and different from the usual ones. Very pretty.

  4. The boxes turned out very nice. I keep my seeds in an old camera box. One or two of these would be very nice. It's fun to think about spring and growing things this time of year. -Steph-
