Hello Charlotte,

Love this journal, fantastic!
I am also a gardener and keep these full of recipes, stories, photos, drawings...dried flowers and seeds...botanical paintings...

Oooh, cute pillow!


I like your garden journal, but really love the idea that it is only interesting when something is planted there, tended and grown. I really, really love the reference to art studios and tending them. Thank you for starting the morning off to an inspired start.


Boy, does your thought about the journal becoming interesting only after planting things there really resonates with me. I have so many journals I've made or been given and some have more material added than others! This really prompts me and reminds me to think! What a grand activity for your garden club! They're lucky to have you as a member!


Hello Charlotte -

The garden journal is great! I am such a fan of having a specific journal for everything. Holidays, kids, gardens... it must come from my (unfulfilled) need to organize my thoughts.

Now if only I could organize my house!

The tea mice are adorable. I love each and every one.



All of your projects are so lovely Charlotte, and I appreciate the efforts that you are making on behalf of good causes. Thank you for making the world a better place. We can all do that. I'm going to try to shop the auction tommorow. I was a bit late for the earlier one, but if I miss out, I think they will be accepting donations to the fund as well.
