There will be flowers

I am on optimist. Also when it comes to gardening. I came up with this design for one of my new pouches. A gardener needs a bag to put the hand lotion in, don't you think? I haven't got much of a garden myself at the moment, but I love reading garden books and magazines collecting knowledge for the future. There will be a time when I will have more time for a garden. You can't do everything at the same time (I keep telling myself).

I thought I might use the design for a sketch book/diary for gardeners as well, what do you green fingered people think? I am thinking that the water should be blue or aqua. It might look too dull in black on a white background...

My favourite Spring shoes are out! The snow is gone and it is officially Spring.

I received the bike print and I love it. You are soooo creative.

Your new gardening bag will be good to hold gardening gloves and seed packets, too. It's so cute!!

the garden pouch is perfect for holding seed packets that we dream of planting. it sounds like spring is arriving in finland around the same time as in minnesota -- which means far too slowly! i dream of putting seeds in the ground but it will be another month before the soil is warm enough.

i am in love with your shoes!
