Post image for Cool Garden-y Stuff on Etsy

Have you clicked around on Etsy.com yet? If not, you’re seriously missing out. It is a site that allows incredibly talented craftspeople to create their own little storefronts. Anyway, while killing time recently, I was looking around Etsy to see what neat gardening and garden-inspired things there might be on the site. Check out what I found and let me know what you think!

Bloom Dammit – Dirt Couture

These “Bloom Dammit” stakes crack me up. The description touts their ability to make stubborn plants bloom. I don’t know about that. ;-) But they are cute and have a great, tongue-in-cheek sense of humor.

Plant Propagator – Dirt Couture


Also from the Dirt Couture shop are these clever plant propagators. The pot is painted with chalkboard paint, so you can write right on the pot. Super helpful since it allows you to put the plant’s name and the date on the pot. It also comes with a clear glass dome to increase humidity.

Stacking Sycamore Leaves – Ravenhill Pottery


Aren’t these sycamore leaves gorgeous? I bet they would look awesome on a small cafe table. Just sayin! Each set comes with three leaves that stack on top of one another.

Good Luck Moss Pendant – Warm Country Meadows

I know this moss terrarium necklace is a tiny bit silly. But it is so gosh darn cute! And that’s real moss in there. Supposedly moss brings good luck and fortunes galore. Sign me up!

I have a deep love for Etsy, you can seriously get sucked into that site and come out 2 hours later wondering what happened. Recently found these Happy Gardening Veggie Greeting Cards from elleartdesigns. I think they would be great to send with a pack of seeds in the spring!

Great idea! Those cards are really charming.

Ahh! I love this idea. Have you ever found cards that you can actually plant? I know they make wrapping paper embedded with tiny seeds that you can plant.

@Angela Yes I have seen greeting type cards made from the seed paper. I have also found a bunch of Etsy sellers who just sell the plantable seed paper that you can stamp or print on to creat your own cards.

I love etsy! I never thought of looking on there for gardening stuff. What a great idea; They really do have alot. It always feels good to get something that is homemade rather than mass produced.

Etsy is a fun place too shop. I found a really cool necklace with a tiny cactus in it. These garden things are really cute!

The moss necklaces are adorable, and all the more adorable for being useless!

Love the idea of chalkboard-paint pots! I always get confused about what herbs I planted in which pots.

Went right to Etsy’s Plants and Edibles page and found “Plant a Bee Garden” seed selection from SevenAcreWoods in Kentucky. (That made me wonder if I’ve missed a previous blog in which you talked about these wonderful pollinators.) I love having the bees at my container plants — makes me think that when they’ve harvested the day’s take, they’re off to make honey at my local farm market, about 1/2 mile away, and when I buy that honey, it has come from the bees on MY plants! Yum…

P.S., Fern: take a look at these flower images — as you might guess, they cover the spectrum from yellow/orange to blue/purple. Stunning.

Hi Fern, I see this is an older post, but I just clicked over from twitter…since you wrote this I launched my store on Etsy, Garden Therapy Handmade: http://www.etsy.com/shop/GardenTherapy. There are some really wonderful things for gardeners on Etsy and I love being part of the handmade community.

Anyhow, I just got your book today so I’m going to make some tea and dig in!
