Spring at the Vintage Lady


Welcome. I am so happy you stopped by. I just returned from my friend Cathy Jarrell's charming shop, The Vintage Lady ,where she is hosting an Herb Fest today. Shopping in her fragrant garden full of herbs, scented geraniums and glorious Spring flowers inspired me to make you a cup of Mint Tea. Would you like to join me in my garden and relax and I will share my photos of Cathy's garden with you.

We are having a glorious day and Bentley, my Studio Assistant, is already in the garden enjoying the Spring flowers

After visiting Cathy's garden I decided to add pops of bright orange flowers to my garden and love the look. My old Rocket vintage bicycle basket is perfect for planting colorful flowers.

I found the adorable Easter rabbits at Ross for $5.99 each. I loved the peach outfits and thought they would like great with the new orange flowers.

Bentley is not sure what to make of the rabbits in his garden.

St Francis is all dressed up for Easter .

Enough of my garden. Let's visit Cathy's charming and whimsical garden.

Her front window is pure whimsy and all dressed up with the cutest bug you have ever seen. Have you ever seen a bug wearing an apron and carrying a butterfly net? Adorable.

The garden is located behind her shop in a precious vintage cottage

The old wagon is filled with fragrant herbs.

Cathy's garden features a large selection of hard to find heirloom and vintage flowers.

A darling topiary bunny.

She specializes in using found and recycled items as planters.

Cathy designs the adorable signs and has a local artist paint them.

The adorable Easter basket was designed by Cathy.
