A Bucket of DIRT and a new MINI GARDEN

Had to pop in and show you some of my new fav elements from my little potting area:

Remember my lovely ol bucket of dirt?

northern cottage bucket o dirt

I added some fun letters

dig in the dirt bucket northern cottage

to remind me just in case I forgot where my dirt was
being stored
I guess!

I’ve been giving this new little potting area a workout lately

Creating a new mini container garden

For this one I used a

vintage old drawer

(sigh!!)

home 039

lined her with a trash bag

stapled that in

home 040

lined the bottom with stones

 

home 041

added some fun elements

a stepping stone path

a little retaining wall

home 042

a raised patio area

home 044

a cute arbor

some irish moss and a few succulents

FUN right?

I have one extra component I’m finishing up right now that I’ll be adding to this mini garden and I’ll show that to you very soon!

Here’s a link to my other mini garden tutorial in case you want to make one of your own!
