Thursday, a garden shed, and Etsy

poster by joeseppi

Just to be clear, I am not going to be decorating any regular old shed for today's post. I am going to be designing a lovely (but still practical!) garden shed like the one that I fell in love with in July. A cozy place of escape as well as place to store those necessary tools - is that too much to ask for?

Practical and pretty necessities:

I'm pretty sure that using this will make you handier.

Everything must have its place.

Things need to be clean - even in a shed.

Perfect! (but pretend):

Can I get this in my size, please?

If there must be a mouse, please let it be this one.

A place to rest and read:
