  6. Oh dear Ann I was already waiting for more pictures from your wonderful garden house inside and out and you have not deceived me, of course not! I'm utterly in love with it! Your guys did such a great job and that it is made of old bricks and windows, makes it even more precious to me. Your whimsical decorations inside are just the perfect touch! Now I wish I had kept the wasp nest from last year! I always wished for a glass/green house with bricks to make it a garden room. You are so lucky! And I'm always amazed at the variety of flower frogs you can find in the USA! Thanks to dear you and sweet Madai I own 3 now and I treasure them so much!
    Wishing you a most happy week in your gorgeous garden!
    xoxo~ Carola

  13. I wish that I had a garden house. I remember that my Grandmom had one and the walls were white lattice. I used to sneak out there all the time and she would warn me of the snakes! yikes, but that didn't stop me from wondering through everything!

    I love, love your garden house.

  23. Hello dearest Ann, I am always so happy to see a post from you my bird loving, squirrel loving friend! This morning we have been watching the Red-bellied Woodpecker, Indigo Buntings, and Squirrels at our feeders. God is so good to bless us with such sweet things. Oh, Ann, what a treasure and blessing your greenhouse is! I could linger over the photos all day! How on earth do you ever get out of there?! :) I love the quote you shared and all of your gorgeous photos! Your dad, hubby and sons did a beautiful job building it for you! I love that they used antique windows, doors and bricks! Those old materials gave your greenhouse instant character, and your vignettes gave it all the charm! I love the sweet angel, your flowers, the shelf, sign, floral paintings and flower frogs. I have a small collection of those too. I love to display my vintage postcards on them, as you have done your old seed packets. I love every single thing you have displayed. The old wasps nest is beautiful~ I love to collect nature finds! I love your sweet rhyme and the floral fabric is gorgeous!!! I love the stool and the bucket too! Thanks so much for sharing dear one! I am so inspired and will share these photos with my hubby. He has been wanting to build a greenhouse for me. Much love to you, Paula

  53. Ann,
    Thanks for leaving me a comment yesterday. I called Dawn & Rose screaming 'Ann like my box'! I know, I'm a complete goon. Just love your stuff so much. The garden shed is amazing, as is the rest of your home. Oh, what fun I could have poking around your awesome treasures. Of course you'd have to do a pat down before I left. Have a great day. Lisa
