Blocks & Spools

I bought some vintage blocks and wooden spools on eBay to test out my idea and see how they’d look in the shelves.

I love it.

Blocks & Spools

I don’t know about you, but I remember playing with spools as a kid at my grandma’s house. Seeing them all jumbled together with the blocks makes me happy.

My Garden: A Personal Plant Reference

If you follow me on Twitter, you may have seen this little statement I made on October 5.

Yeah, well… I just finished.

My Garden: A Personal Plant Reference

That’s the cover and a sample page. There are 28 plants listed, and (unless I forgot about one) every perennial flower, bush, and tree in my garden is represented.

I culled photos and information from Monrovia, Nature Hills, Spring Hill Nursery, Michigan Bulb Co., and yes, even Wikipedia. I noted the source of information at the bottom of each page.

If you’re curious and would like to see the crazy project I spent way too much time on, you can download the PDF by clicking on the banner below.

Wouldn’t these look nice in a bright bold pink?
