Garden Decor at Ribbonwood Cottage

 I have always loved garden decor, it just gets to me.
When you first drive up this is what you see....
my wheelbarrow and several containers (gophers can't get to them this way) filled with flowers that overflow!
My all time favorite rose bush just blows me away each season!

Shabby style potting bench

Because we live on a farm, there are old and new ways of decorating outside.

 One of our trusty roosters keeps watch behind chicken wire while I putter around the porch!

                                                      I love it.
I want to welcome guests with blooms everywhere!

We live on 3 acres and it has farm animals on it(cows, sheep, chickens, geese, turkeys, pigeons, pigs) and 2 acres of produce....lots of melons and vegetables this time of year. But near the house, on the porch I plant lots of flowers.

 Many rose bushes that climb up trees and sunflowers for fall decorating...it will be here soon!

 Here is my vintage bathtub last year .... I planted mums till there was no more room! I love flowers to spill out of their containers.
 Of course my little miniature world and Etsy shop also reflect my love of the garden.
 I found little  garden tools at Hobby Lobby and well....the rest just kind of took shape. 
 And I personally have a collection of shutters that defies human reasoning! My husband wants to know how many more I need! Hahaha....I just ask him how many farm animals he needs?  Hahahha
You have to talk farm talk to a farmer!!!
 On the bottom shelf I used Washi tape to adorn little boxes, and I made the wire basket that holds miniature terra cotta pots.
Thank you for stopping by for a visit!
