Vintage garden markers…….

 

-------

Over the weekend my husband and I had to drop something off for his work at a job site in Lawrence. Afterwards we stopped off at a few places before heading home. One place we stopped was a little antique shop in Ottawa where I found these cute little vintage galvanized garden markers.

Originally I had intended to use them outside……However once I laid them on the coffee table with my herbarium book I loved them paired with the book so much that I left them.

I love the hand painted numbers….each tag was individually cut so they are slightly different in size.

While at the little shop we went outside to the garden area where this cute little bunny was sitting. I figured he would hop away when he saw is but instead he laid down and watched us as we browsed.

I found a little goodie in the garden section that I will share with you later.

Hope to see you there!

Des,
Love the garden tags. I agree they look perfect in the books on the table. That bunny how adorable is he to just want to lay there and chill while you shopped. Too cute.

Aahh, sweet little bunny, Deserae. Yes, sometimes they surprise me and don't run away. Those tags are cool, and go well sitting on your books.

love,

The tags are perfect for a vignette! Get the cheapies from Michael's for outdoors. The bunny is so darn cute. I love garden shops!
