The Secret Garden...Shhhhhhhh...

Sarah @ My So Called Junky Life
was the genius behind the Secret Garden Swap...
and since I adore that book, I had to get in on it!

Thank you, Sarah!

I thought quotes form the book and a bit a garden gate
would be fun!

I can't remember...if in the book...a little bird leads Mary to the garden?
But in the movie version that I have he does...so, I incorporated Mr. Birdie
into my idea...with a key, of course...how else would she get in?? ;}

And lots & lots of flowers! Oh yes...and a few treats inside!

My swap partner was Lynne of English Teacup {she really is English
so, she knows her teacups!} and she sent me so many treats!

She actually sewed this little bag for me! Look a t the details! I cannot
sew a stitch and I am always amazed by it! WoW! Thank you, Lynne!!!!

Hurry over to Cindy's for more Show & Tell Friday !
