Garden "Accessories"

One of the things that I remember the most from the Philadelphia Garden Show this year, was the competitions.  They had a window box competition.
Front Porch Competition
Terrarium Competition

Hundreds and hundreds of plant competitions.

The Miniature Garden Competition you can see HERE.  
Being a jewelry maker myself, the competition I enjoyed the most was the "accessory" competition;  Transforming plant material into incredible accessories.  Beautiful clutch purses made from corn husks, other large leaves, and seeds.

Earrings made from leaves and seeds.
 An amazing watch made seeds, tiny leaves and branches and the actual watch from a bean.  This watch actually worked! 
My favorite of the accessories was this incredible hat.  I would so wear this! The colors, the shape, everything about it was so beautiful.  

 Stayed tuned, I still have the amazing shadow displays and the carousel animals to show you.  There were just so many wonderful things to see I can't stop myself from sharing with you :)
Come visit everyone at Seasonal Sundays


  1. You're so lucky to get to go to the Philly Garden show, Dianne! What a nice break from winter, too.

    I ♥ that hat!!! Too cool & I agree, I'd wear it!

    This is my first visit to your blog, but not my last. So nice to "meet" you!


  2. OOh love the accessories.. I'm with you on the hat. that piece is a work of art, as is the watch. Can you just see the hat as a centerpiece on a table for a ladies' luncheon? with added purses and a scarf made from something organic! Or a tablerunner.. my mind is running overtime now. What a delight to visit today!

  3. How delightful! What a great Garden show and you are so lucky to be able to take advantage of it.

  4. I can just see you in that hat! So many beautiful things from the show.. Your heart had to be beating fast the entire time you were there!

  5. What an amazing show! I can't believe those purses.

    It's wonderful to have you be a part of Seasonal Sundays!
