Garden Whimsy

Greetings Friends! In our busy lives, with our hectic schedules, don't we all need a little breath of the unexpected? In my garden, life is a bed of roses...or at least Rosemary or maybe a little of both! When I walk through the gate, it is my temporary refuge and I love to fill it with whimsical touches...

Repurposed headboard garden trellis

 Repurposing by its very nature seems to lend itself to whimsy. A little imagination and a can of spray paint can go along way--so start repurposing and get your whimsy on!  With a fresh coat of turquoise paint, an old rattan headboard is upcycled into a unique garden trellis. A discarded saw becomes an inspirational message when its rusty blade is painted with chalkboard paint and labled with the single word "Create." An assortment of painted yellow bird cages appear to float mid-air when hung from the trees with fishing line.  Whether you have an expansive garden or a tiny patio, repurposing your thrift finds is a fun, inexpensive way to add charm to your outdoor space. Update: Find more whimsical garden accents!
I would love to hear how you add whimsy to your garden--please share!
