Etsy Picks: In the Garden

I am so inspired these days by my tenacious little veggie garden. We have the absolute worst clay soil out here but some how these mini plants are able to break through the caked surface.

So I decided that this week, in the first of many 'Etsy Picks,' I'd feature some fabulous, original garden themed stuff. All these items can be found for sale on Etsy.

Add some cool to your window herb garden with these hand stamped silver plant markers from Nina Gibson Designs.

And at only $7.00 a piece they're an affordable, environmentally friendly (not to mention a gagillion times hipper) alternative to plastic.

Check out this awesome utility apron from Nurtured Threads. It has tons of pockets and a little holster that I think would be perfect for holdling my trowel.

Get dirty and look good doing it for $30.00.

Pull up a lawn chair after a hard day's work in the garden, invite some friends over and roast some veggie kabobs over this very cool pedestal fire pit. Perfect.

John Tunger, $500.00

And last, but definitely not least, restore your dry over-worked hands to their pre-shovel glory with Farmer's Hand Salve from Sugarwood Naturals.

This would make a great gift for any gardener in your life for only $6.50.

Hope you enjoyed my Etsy Picks for this week! Make sure you check out all the great shops I featured today. And don't forget to leave a comment! I'll be back next week with more fun stuff. Have a great weekend!

Seriously Delinquent Blogger.

That's me! I haven't updated my blog since before my Mexico vacation....and that was a while ago. Oops. Lots of new stuff in my Etsy shop. So check it out if you get a chance. Here's a little glimpse at what I've been up to, knitting faux bling chains. It's my new thing.

Also, the garden is going well, stay tuned for some fantastic videos. Oh, and I'll try to post some of my Mexico pics. The trip was ridiculously fantastic!
