A Garden Gift for a Little Girl

Here is another gift idea to share with you; a gift for the little gardener.
I found this Cath Kidston looking apron at JoAnn Fabrics.  I bought two; one for my daughter and one for her friend, Mary Scott.  Her mom has a garden, so now Mary Scott will have her own tools!
 I found the straw hat in a kid size at Michaels.  I had the ribbon at home and used it to tie through the little vent holes to make the bows.
I found the coloring book at Hobby Lobby.
These came from Target.
 This pack of Sweet Pea seeds came from Michaels, too.  The package is intended for little ones to color.
Pretty pink stakes came from Michaels.
 I packaged everything in the apron, placed the apron inside the hat and tied the ribbon around the apron full of garden goodies.  Brooke signed her name to a little chalk board, used as a gift tag, for her friend Mary Scott's sixth birthday!
 Brooke models it for you!
Of course, I had to the throw the puppy in there, because he is so cute, too!

Note: My friend asked me when do I have time to run to all those places to put together a gift.  Often, I find something that inspires me, like the apron, and then when I am out, I look for things to go with it.  Also, because I have three kids, which means lots of friends' birthday parties, I buy things along the way and keep in my craft/decor/gift closet!

Thanks for stopping by!

THis is so precious! Looking forward to the time when our sweet baby girl is big enough to garden or even just bake cookies with me. Until then, I wonder if my niece would enjoy something like this?

Mary Scott, and her mommy, are so very thankful for such an endearing gift to be used as we work together in our garden. Thank you for blessing us with your creativity!!

This is absolutely precious! I was such a little girly girl...always in a hat carrying a purse in the crook of my arm. I would have squealed over a gift like this.
Your little Brooke is precious, and the puppy...now words:)))
