A mini garden for Stanley's birthday






We've just finished making a mini garden for Stanley, who will soon be two, TWO!!! how did that happen so quickly? We copied the idea from a picture that we saw on Pinterest, where most of my ideas seem to originate these days! It was so easy to make, an ivy twig from the garden with tiny twig steps glued on with PVA glue. A tyre swing made with a Lego tyre, tied on with string and we made the treehouse platform from a few lolly sticks glued together. We planted the garden with moss, dill and corncockle plants that we'd grown from our Higgledy Seeds. Then added some small bunting sewn together from scraps and a tiny washing line too. We are planning to give it to our garden loving little babe for his second birthday with a set of mini tools so he can garden. I hope he likes it.

  1. Happy Birthday Stanley - I can't believe that he is going to be two already! It is so true that saying about how the hours can be slow but the years are fast. I took Erin back to uni this weekend for her last term, three years just gone in a flash. Sometimes as a mother I want to stop it all and just be together. Every moment is precious, even the more testing ones.
    Hope he has a wonderful birthday x
