Welcome friend! I'm so glad you have joined me here at Dreaming of Homemaking. I like to think of this blog as my journal, full of ideas that have helped me turn my house into a warm, welcoming home. My hope is that you too find this little piece of the internet a place to gather ideas and find inspiration.
Its officially spring, and on the first day we had the most beautiful weather and decided to garden! We headed to JOANN to find some fun accessories but can you guess what we found? EVERYTHING to garden – the seeds, supplies, and even the starting system it was like a treasure hunt! If you have followed for awhile you know that JOANN is one of Zoe’s favorite places to go we saw a few things the last time we went but this time we couldn’t believe all we found! Make sure to read the rest, not only because this is one of my favorite posts but all the great things we found!
We love to style the kids playhouse each season, and now the kids don’t want this space to change. The Potting Shed Sign we found at JOANN couldn’t be more perfect for this space. We love to garden, even if we aren’t great at it and the saying on it is perfect “ Where good things grow” because its so true, what better than to grow your own fruits and veggies?
A few years ago we decided to start our little garden in hopes that our kids would want to try the vegetables since they grew them and watched the process, and it worked! Zoes favorite food now is peppers, all because this little garden.
Zoe loves to be out here and work on the garden, her favorite part is watering it ( well besides eating from it). When we went to JOANN she was so excited to find this kneeler pad with matching gloves and an apron, we made sure to get matching sets.
Zoe and I had so much fun making these DIY Garden Stakes, you can find the tutorial on the JOANN APP. I love doing crafts that kids can do to and this one was so easy and you only need three supplies!
Here are the supplies you will need :
You can find how to make them on the JOANN APP.
If you want these garden stakes to last even longer you can always paint with a sealant, we weren’t to worried since its a fun project to do and we have a whole bunch of sticks!
Now its time to watch our garden grow, the nice thing is our lettuce is already ready!
Doesn’t this little view make you want to set up a gardening space? I know I am ready for spring and summer!
Rosie loves this space too, she likes to hide in the playhouse. When she isn’t doing that she watches the birds go in the birdhouse.
The kids are ready to hang out here, I am sure this weekend they will be passing out lemonades in here.
This sweet little basket is a favorite of mine, I love things like this that you can use all over. Wouldn’t it be sweet to put little Daisy the pup in it?
Well Daisy may not have wanted to go in the basket, she loves posing for the camera with her sidekick Rosie!
Now lets show you a little more into this potting bench! I love the little metal planter, it can be used for so many things. I am storing seeds in it for now, while later on I will probably plant some of my herbs!
These kneeling pads we showed in use before, but aren’t they so cute!
I just cant get enough of this space, really I should get my chair out here to sit back and enjoy!
Oh, lets not forget these Garden stakes they have ready if you don’t want to DIY! I will be using these in a little herb garden.
Now last but not least, the fun treasure we found! We had NO idea when we went to JOANN that they would have all the seeds we would want, along with this Seed starting system! The kids are so ready to get this going and we will have so many more garden adventures! We hope you enjoyed seeing all of the fun finds we found at JOANN.
