a gardening basket...

today i put together a gardening basket for a friend of mine... she's going to a bridal shower on sunday... so she picked out a bunch of things and brought them over... lots of good stuff...

a large hanging basket with a cocoa mat... a cute bird bath... a hummingbird feeder... sturdy garden tools... a journal... a copy of spring cottage magazine {i peeked... & the pages are FULL of pretty things and inspiration}... and a pair of ethel gardening gloves... 

i started arranging all of the things in the hanging basket... the bird bath was too big to put in assembled so i tucked the bowl in the back and off to the side... the base anchored the center of the basket... but there was a small hole in the top... 
the perfect spot to add some pom pom flowers... they can be added to a mason jar or a vase when the basket is disassembled...
i gathered some sticks... and got to work...
i used a pretty blue, olive-y green, tan and cream for the pom poms...
there's a better view of spring cottage... now that you know what the cover looks like you can go grab a copy for yourself :)
my friend requested a "love blooms here" tag to be attached... 
and there you have it... all finished... my lighting at this time of the day is not the best... but you get the idea... such a thoughtful gift!

have a happy day~
