My Little Greenhouse

I purchased this sweet little greenhouse years ago at Big Lots. It's one of my favorite purchases. I can use it for display or as I'm doing now, use it as a greenhouse.

Egg shells are the perfect way to start seeds. Not only are the shells cute, they can be planted right in the ground and are great for the soil.

So I can tell my sweet pea colors apart and my lupine from the sweet peas I made little flags. I'm not a "crafty" person, but this was so easy! I coated them with sparkling Mod Podge to keep them from getting soggy. And well, the sparkle part was just for me! Cuz what girl doesn't like a little sparkle?

I added a little bluebird figurine to watch over the eggs and now I'm just waiting for them to sprout!


  1. That is so very clever! I love it...and the watch bird, very sweet.

  2. Hi,

    Oh my goodness - what an adorable way to start seed. I am going to give it a try for Sweet Peas.
    Thank you for sharing.
    Have a wonderful day.

  3. I remember my children had done that one time for a project for school..yes a great idea for planting.
    Do love your greenhouse too.


  4. That's a cute idea Holly. I've used eggshells before, but I really like the idea of sparkly flag labels. Is the bluebird vintage? It reminds me of the Lefton bluebird ware.

  5. What a great chic idea! love it!
