French Garden Inspired Frame

I've mentioned before that vintage garden goods have always been my favorite kind of "vintage". I love it all, but I have a real soft spot for old garden tools, wagons, ephemera,...anything "seed" related, etc. I've had to pack up most of my garden goodies for now, during our move, but I've kept a few little things to play with and decorate my baker's rack in the sitting room.

When we cleaned out my in-laws garden shed a few years ago I confiscated several old garden tools, and I've had my radar up for a few different ones recently. (more on that next week) These little ones below are of the "mini" variety that I use with my tabletop wheelbarrow. I've been collecting garden inspiration on Pinterest using the old tools, and thought I might try a little summery wall vignette with an old empty chippy frame from my stash.

Inspiration for a French Garden Frame from the Graphics Fairy

I have this hanging in the sitting area in the kitchen.
I'll share the rest of the summer garden baker's rack next week.

I included a mini bee skep among the flowers in the old watering can. I recently bought a little bigger one, (that I haven't shown you yet). I've had this little one for ages, complete with "bees".

My Black Eye'd Susans are really blooming crazy this year,
 so I thought I'd do a little nod to them on this.

And speaking of vintage and gardens, have you seen this wonderful new magazine? This is the premier issue and contains beautiful features with two of our blogging friends...

Jeanine from Chippy Shabby

Jeanine has the most amazing Holiday and seasonal vignettes in her home
 using her amazing vintage collections. 

 And our friend Carola from Germany at Boxwood Cottage.
Her gardens are an English Country dream.

This is one of the best vintage inspired Garden magazines I've seen.

Hope you're having a great weekend.
We have a contract on the house, YAY!!!
