I absolutely love creating little garden decor arrangements using vintage items that I’ve found at garage sales, thrift stores, estate sales, or flea markets. These vignettes add a unique touch to different areas of my garden and give it a personalized look. In this post, I’m sharing some pictures of the various groupings I’ve put together over the years. I hope these images will inspire you to come up with your own ideas for incorporating flea market finds, repurposed, or upcycled junk into your flower gardens. Take a virtual tour with me and have fun exploring!
Do you have any idea about the meaning of “vignette”? According to vocabulary.com, a vignette refers to a short and impactful scene that leaves the audience wanting more. It’s a general notion that whether it’s an indoor or outdoor decor, vignettes tend to look better in odd numbers.
One way to get started on creating charming garden displays is by rummaging through your yard and garden shed for materials that can be recycled. For instance, my husband fashioned an attractive chair using branches and twigs from a maple tree we had to remove. I decorated it with a wicker basket filled with annuals and trailed a Nelly Moser clematis along the back. Even a friendly robin decided to perch on the chair for a little while! The chair makes for a delightful addition to our flower garden.
