I am so excited to be part of the Christmas in the Greenhouse blog tour! If you just came from visiting Rachel at the Ponds Farmhouse, and her beautiful greenhouse, welcome!! So glad you are here!
Well, it has been quite a year..in more ways than one! I didn’t think I would even be sharing my potting shed decked out for Christmas this year. I got a jump on decorating early in November, but a wind storm derailed those plans. The tree was up and I had a pretty Christmas vignette set up on a glass table I had placed in the centre of the shed.
Along came the wind storm. The shed was moved half a foot!…the middle window in the back blew in, toppling the cabinet over onto the glass table, breaking the window in the door, along with a couple of the window latches. Needless to say, I was devastated. The windows in the cabinet were smashed, along with the glass tabletop. After a few tears, we began the clean up. Gerald carried 4 pails of glass out of there!! I am so thankful that things are coming together! There are a few repairs that will wait until Spring, but it could have been so much worse!
Once the clean up was done, I set to work. I stapled vintage sheets inside the cabinet doors in place of the glass. I like it even better than the glass! The tree is a vintage style tinsel tree that I have had for a few years. My daughter made the wreath for me last year, and it was a miracle it wasn’t ruined! The small greenhouse on the table survived as well!!! My little greenhouse on top of the cabinet has some faux boxwood balls and pink sparkly poinsettia clips inside. The only decorations on the tree so far, are my Christmas vintage postcards. I glued glitter around each one and clipped them on the tree with glittered clothes pins. I made the stars on the back wall from wrapping paper.
On the other side is my little electric fireplace. My vintage watering can with the tinsel tree fits perfect on it. And of course Coconut! If you don’t follow me on Instagram, you may not be introduced to him yet. This fella showed up at our farm about a month ago… after several inquiries, he didn’t appear to have a family…so he is ours now!
I placed a garland made from vintage Christmas postcards on my vintage sink potting bench.
Outside, I filled the flower boxes with cedar that I clipped off of our hedge, and I placed a pink pail full of cedar in my vintage sled. The pink rubber boots always make an appearance by the shed. They are filled with cedar as well. I have some pink glittered balls from the dollar store wired to the cedar ( you can’t see the ones in the flower box because Coconut is sitting on them..haha)
A bit of pink ribbon added here and there.
Thank you so much for stopping by and taking a peek into my potting shed! I am so thankful that I was able to decorate it this year, and I appreciate each one of you! Happy decorating!
Now next on our Christmas in the Greenhouse tour is Kim from Shiplap and Shells!. You won’t want to miss seeing her charming space!
