    Just love your little Peter Rabbit garden. I’m a little late to the party, just going through my zillions of emails. I think it’s great that you created that adorable jacket from felt! I do sew, but I doubt I could make a cute jacket like that. My suggestion for when you do decide to start sewing is to take your machine’s manual and go through every page, doing what it suggests. I think it’s a great way to learn your particular machine and it will give you confidence to start actually sewing. Good luck! Oh, and I hope to come to NH soon to check out the shops you suggest. Thanks for sharing! Jan in MA

      Learning to sew is on my list for this winter…especially since the Farmer’s Almanac says we are going to be in for it in New England!! Thanks so much for taking the time to comment, I so appreciate it my fellow New Englander!! The Fall Vintage Bazaar New England is Oct 1 & 2 at Kimball Farm in Haverhill, it’s going to be a good one (as long as it doesn’t rain, then it’s going to be a muddy one!)

  2. Jen girl, this is absolutely darling! I love every single little piece of whimsy and can’t wait to see it once the veggies are bigger! Great job, pinned!

      Thanks, Cindy!! It’s been a slow-growing season here…we had a chilly Spring.

  3. So cute, friend. Such a fun idea. Please make one for me to scare away all of the squirrels!!

    1. Jennifer Howard says:

      They are the worst!! I have a one-eyed squirrel that sits on my deck railing…I can’t even scare him because of that one eye thing!!

    2. You dud a fantastic job! It’s adorable. I can’t sew a thing either.

      My mom was almost as good as a seamstress. I regret not listening and letting her teach me.

      At least great fabric glues are available. And washable now.

      1. Jennifer Howard says:

        I’m the same way, Cindy! My Mom used to sew all my clothes when I was little and I regret not learning! But it’s not too late and I’m determined to teach myself!

    Love your scarecrow and the jacket!!
    I would pay money if someone wants to make one!!

    1. Jennifer Howard says:

      Thanks so much!!

  5. I love your scarecrow! I saved a magazine article with a Beatrice Potter garden and have always wanted to make one. You’ve inspired me. That red shovel just makes it so cute and great job on the jacket!

    1. Jennifer Howard says:

      Oh, thanks so much!! Finding that shovel was pure luck! I’ve never come across one before…and probably won’t again!

    1. Jennifer Howard says:

      Thanks so much, Renae!!

  6. That shop looks amazing and I love all the little treasures you scored! Loved the chippy terrarium too, but sometimes we have to just walk away!

    That little scarecrow is the cutest. Those little shoes are such a whimsical touch! I want to make some kind of little scarecrow for my garden this fall. You have inspired me.

    Great post!

    1. Jennifer Howard says:

      Aww, thanks Amber!!

  7. Your Peter Rabbit scarecrow is so adorable! Very fun post, Jen. Love the handmade garden stone too.

    1. Jennifer Howard says:

      Yes, I have to put that stone out! I picked it up and put it down at least 10 times because I was looking for vintage stuff for the garden…but I couldn’t resist and it’s a local artisan too so I didn’t feel too bad!

  8. I love your whimsical scarecrow garden, Jennifer. I found an inspirational garden a few years ago that I’ve wanted to try myself but haven’t found the appropriate Peter Rabbit outfit. I can’t sew! Loved this so much.

    1. Jennifer Howard says:

      LOL, I can’t sew either!! Thank goodness for fabric glue!! I can’t wait until it all grows in but everything is super slow this season here!

  9. Jennifer, I love the little scarecrow garden. I should do that to keep the bunnies out! They are wreaking havoc on my zinnias right now. So cute!

      Not the zinnias…not the zinnias!!!
