Vintage Lady Garden Tour

Welcome. I am so happy that you stopped by. Today my friend, Cathy, who owns The Vintage Lady, is going take us on a tour of her charming and delightful vintage garden located behind her equally charming and delightful shop. Her blue door is always open for you to come in and sit and relax and enjoy her shop and garden.




You are greeted by happy words in her shop as well as throughout the garden - both are alive with creative projects and provide a beautiful and peaceful sanctuary - Cathy feels laughter, music, flowers and prayer are essential and her Life Goals are to "dig deep - pray - expect". She will take us on a tour of her shop on another day.






One of my favorite signs in the garden: "When I grow up I want to be a little girl".
Everyone who tours her fun garden feels like a child again.





Cathy has all of her signs custom made just for The Vintage Lady and they are all unique and originals.




She is well known for her custom Fairy Gardens .














She also has fun "make-it-take-it garden container classes on special occasions.

















Sadly someone just stole her vintage pink bicycle.








Love her old flower box with vintage iron brackets.












The garden is filled with unique and charming vintage items used as containers.



"Let all who seek you rejoice and be glad in you." Psalm 70:4




It is not unusual for friends to drop off old vintage items (to save them from the dump) for Cathy to give a new home.




Another one of my favorite signs.

Hello Erin,

Thank you very much to take us on a tour of a such charming garden and beautiful shop.
The garden looks enchanting, cosy and peacefull, inviting us to relax while reading Cathy's favorite signs. I like the idea of signs and the fairy gives it a touch of poetry.
I wish I could live here to visit Cathy's shop.

I wish you a nice and creative weekend.

Blessings
