The Upcycled Garden: Pink For Your Boho Cottage Garden

Amazingly beautiful pink hanging glass flower jars from Roses and Patina

Ahh sweet summer is finally here (well almost—it will be on Friday) and what better time to talk more about the sweet summer garden than on the edge of summer. 

There's an inter-twining of themes when we talk about vintage and upcycled and even the style of Bohemian (or Eclectic) or Cottage because they all have a few common elements. You guessed it, Vintage is the common element throughout. Whether we discuss it in terms of chippy paint, weathered, worn, salvaged, or with a touch of creativity and clever thinking—repurposed and even upcycled—it's still vintage. Or antique, depending on the age. 

There's something about a natural, organic patina that has this certain special magic (if you know what I'm talking about leave a comment below!) that can only be achieved with the passage of time. Timeworn. It even has its own word. 

Add a blush of sweet pink into the garden greenery and the cottage style begins to take the lead.
