Lamps with a Gardener’s Touch

Flower Pot Lamp Shade

I’ve had a couple yard sale lamps on the potting bench in our garden room for sometime now. My intent was to find some wonderful shades to replace the stained and torn existing ones. But, do you know how much lamp shades cost? Especially the cute gardening themed ones, that I thought I wanted, were

Recently, I saw some wonderful hand-forged fairy doors for sale and fell in love with them. The only problem was the price – $58 each! I tried to come up with a way to get the look without spending that kind of money. Here’s what I came up with ~ Horseshoe Fairy Doors. A horsey friend

Field Trip ~ Philadelphia Flower Show

2017 Philadelphia Flower Show

Set ahead to the second week in March to avoid bad weather, ironically, the Philadelphia Flower Show opened on a snowy day and experienced Storm Stella midweek during its run. Despite the weather, it was worth the effort to attend this year’s “Holland ~ Flowering the World” themed flower show sponsored by the Philadelphia Horticulture

March Ice Storm ~ Stella Smudge Pots

March Ice Storm ~ Stella Smudge Pots

Here on the East Coast, our recent March storm, Stella, worked her magic. Bringing sleet, freezing rain, snow and then ice, she turned our yard into a set from the movie “Frozen.” Iced and crystalized, many branches could not bear this additional weight and bowed, some to the point of breaking. In the bitter wind,

Fall Fairy Windowbox

Fall Fairy Windowbox

It was time for a windowbox change here at Our Fairfield Home and Garden. Formerly lush summer plantings were becoming leggy and the blooms sporadic, so I wanted a transition into fall. Happening on a clearance table at the Michael’s craft store, two tiny fairy houses drew my eye and gave me an idea! And,
