My Vintage Shabby Chic Journal

I decided to try my hand at making a  Journal so I can keep a good record of my flowers and plants.   I took the cover off a book from the thrift store and covered it with a pretty gardening scene from The Graphics Fairy.  

Then I made lots of pages and bound them using my "Bind-it-all."  So now I have lots of room to recount the trials and tribulations of my gardening efforts. 

I have plain journaling pages to write my gardening advertures and misadventures.

Pages for Photos and Momentos of my gardening (I use that term lightly).

A page with pockets to slip in those information tags that come with plants.  It didn't turn out well, but it's for gardening.  Nature isn't perfect either, it's just prettier!  ;=)

Cool idea. I have a little garden book that I keep as well BUT it is very ordinary. SO..thanks for the inspiration and that will be my little project today. Make a nice cover for my garden notebook.

Love all your creations..I check in often.
Hugs, Marcie

What a grand idea! I love that you are living beautifully and keeping a record of your garden delights. I really admire gardeners, I am not much of one myself, we won't talk about the two dead shrubs that now frame my front door ;c) Have a wonderful weekend!
