Solar Twinkling Wine Bottle Lights

video

Decorate your garden or patio with beautiful twinkling lights.  Our solar powered wine bottle lights are easy to use.  Just add to any bottle, the solar powered lights are charged everyday by the sun and come to life at dusk every night.  The lights twinkle softly like summer fireflies.  The light set is attached to a bottle topper with a metal handle so you can display your bottle lights on a garden hook or tree. You can also sit bottles around your patio.  Not just for wine bottles, great for any decorative glass bottle.

Miniature Garden Idea ~ Garden Sofa

We found this blog post from Gypsy Garden 
and loved the creativity behind this great display. 
You can purchase miniature garden items found in this photo
 in our online store ~

There is a link at the bottom of this article to 
some of the items used to create this 
vintage sofa mini garden display.

Yep! That’s real, live moss. Spritzed with water each night to keep it looking fresh. This couch-turned-mini-garden was definitely a showstopper. A not-so-mini miniature garden planted on a couch covered in moss is certainly not something you see everyday. When you’re putting together your own displays, keep an eye out for one-of-a-kind pieces like this couch. Items like this create interest and draw shoppers in to see what you have to offer.
This couch didn’t always have the appeal that it had in our showroom. Let’s just say it had been through a lot when we found it… but our merchandising team saw its potential and was able to use it to create something beautiful. With a fresh coat of paint, lots of moss and hot glue, and a little planting help from our friends at Batson’s, this couch took on a whole new life. You know what they say… one man’s trash is another man’s treasure!

The mini garden appears to be planted directly in the couch, but to give ourselves a little more flexibility and extend the life of our garden, we planted in plastic under-the-bed storage containers. This way, we can easily move the containers and use them in another display if necessary. You could use any size container to do something like this – when you’re finished planting, just hot-glue some moss onto the edges, and voilĂ !                         article credit:  Studio M Blog

Miniature Gardening

What are miniature gardens?

Miniature gardens are tiny to scale gardens created with dwarf plants and flowers, in flower pots or beds.  Figures and characters and other items are added to create tiny worlds from the gardener's imagination.

Small accessories like garden houses and doors, patio furniture, playing animals, vintage campers, tents, and canoes, sleeping fairy babies, tikki bars, gnome house doors and more are added among the plants. Small pebble walk ways and patio pads are also added to cause the eye to travel and wander through the tiny garden world.


      




The wide range of item themes and styles now available makes miniature gardening a great hobby for anyone to enjoy!

Miniature garden figures you can add to your mini landscapes can be fairy or gnome themed, but if woodland homes, secret garden doors and mystical creatures are not your cup of tea, our miniature gardening collection offers you many other options for playing in your flower pots and patio planters!

Many mini gardeners prefer to create tiny worlds using more everyday and main stream themes. Vintage campers, garden sheds, farms scenes, yoga frogs, dogs and rabbits, whimsical owls and much more.












Browse through just a few photos of miniature gardens and you will quickly see the fun to be had!
You can find many images on the internet, like our Miniature Gardening Pinterest board and Miniature Gardening at Shelley B Facebook page.

Take some time to enjoy our photos then use your imagination to design your own
favorite garden scene.

 Is it a formal manicured garden, a fun tikki bar patio with light strings,
a beach chair in the sand at the edge of the dune grass?









Mini gardening is a growing hobby. Its an easy, fun way to express your own creativity. Working
in small scale allows so many possibilities. You can enjoy bringing your garden landscape to life, without hours of back breaking garden work.

Create a tiny oasis in a patio container to cozy up your patio this summer. Miniature gardens can
be kept close to where you entertain making them a focal point to be enjoyed by your guests. They also make thoughtful and creative gifts for friends and family.

You can now buy Miniature Gardening Figures and Fairy Gardening Figures at Shelley B Home and Holiday. We have been gathering great accessories and photos to help our customers create their own miniature gardens. Items are listing now with many more to follow.

Bird Cage and Garden Urn Porch decorating project.


Need a summer decorating idea for your front porch urn? Here's an idea using items found in our store. Links to items used are posted below the video at the bottom of this post.

We started with our favorite angel garden statue and placed it in a decorative bird cage for impact and height.  Then we added floral stems to the urn.  Two cascading style stems were added on each side and our sunflower bouquet bundles were placed in the center.  We added LED wire lights to the flowers for soft accent lighting.  The LED lights have an automatic timer which lights for 6 hours, shuts off and then automatically restarts after 18 hours.

Pretty, easy to create and no watering or flower care needed.

Vintage Holiday Children collection by Bethany Lowe Spring 2015


Bethany Lowe's vintage holiday children collection offers many new designs every year featuring children celebrating holidays through out the year.  Each figure is designed to capture a special moment unique to a particular holiday.  Trimming the tree at Christmas, building a snowman on a winter day, trick or treating at Halloween, Valentine's Day special deliveries, children at Easter with spring chicks and Easter bunnies, and many more. Every year Bethany brings a new idea to add to your collection. 

The best way for us to introduce you to Bethany Lowe is by sharing a portion of her website below:

 "Through Beth’s work, everything old becomes new again as she captures the warm memories of her childhood growing up on a Midwestern farm. Holidays were a magical time for Beth’s family and the small community she grew up in, with costume parties, mummer’s parades, pumpkin carving contests, and trick-or-treating throughout the neighborhoods. Families went for horse-drawn sleigh rides, ice skated together on country ponds, went caroling door-to-door, and built snow forts and snowmen to greet passersby. As a child, one of Beth’s favorite traditions was creating May baskets from paper and flowers – special gifts to be hung on the doors of friends and family."

Her vintage children collection is one of our very favorite lines.  I have created a page on my website where you can see all our current selections for all holidays and seasons.  
I hope you will stop by to see
why we love this collection....
