For The Love Of Potting Sheds

Now this is a sweet potting shed

Before I start this post  this morning I would just like to take this oportunity to say WELCOME to all the nice people who find my blog interesting enough to follow and to all those who just stop by for a little visit.
Thank you for making my day!

Wouldn't you like to spend some time here?

Potting Sheds...everyone has their own idea of what a potting shed should be.
Some visualize a small wooden structure snuggled into a corner of the back yard next to the garden.
Some picture a quaint little stone cottge type of structure hidden by rambling roses or lucious green ivy.
Still others dream of a combination potting shed/artist studio/craft room filled with light and plenty of shelves for storage and counter space for working.
We all need a place to keep our gardening/yardwork tools and I hope if you have such a place
that you have fun with matter what size or shape it is.

I could sure use all this counterspace

What are the threads that tie these visions and ideas together? Charm. Functionality.

Oh My...look at these beautiful stone walls!
Wouldn't it be wonderful to have all that counterspace with natural light and look at all those clay pots! LOVE those beams too.

A potting shed doesn't have to be large to be functional
or tiny to be charming.

Even old chicken coops can be used as a potting shed

How cute is this little potting shed!
I think I'd spend most of the day here.

My potting shed/coop/woman cave

One day I'll show you the inside
I have a potting shed. It's not tiny but I think it's charming.
It was an old chicken coop and one end is still being used by chickens
but the larger end is my potting/storage/woman cave.
I have big plans for this shed in the future but for now I'm just grateful to have a place on this farm that's

Do you have a potting shed or a space for just you?

I use our spare bedroom as my own little "woman cave" (love that description!)I have my craft stuff in there, my lap top and a stereo to listen too. My desk is right under the window so I get a nice breeze in the summertime. All I need is a comfy chair to read in, but then I may never leave it!

No but I sure wish I did, and I'm looking forward to seeing yours! A woman cave! I like that idea! : )

Looks like I have some reading to catch up on below, goodie!

Be well ~Andrea~

Lovely inspirational photos! We have a stone shed which we plan on converting in to a utility room. However, would love to have a little pottiing shed and a summer house when the garden is finished! The summer house will be a real treat. Relaxing of an evening, with the heady scent of flowers all around. Bliss!...

Warm wishes

Maura, you have an awesome woman cave!! I have a couple of porches that I use for potting when I need them, but how perfect it would be to have an actual space designated for that. May have to design the next coop to include a potting shed area.. great idea ;) Loved the inspiration photos too! -Tammy

I have one in my imagination!
It looks like a cross between several of these pictured.

I'm considering turning the girls old playhouse into one this summer or fall. I just can't QUITE "let go" of the playhouse yet...

Nope, I have a potting bench LOL! I've been asking for a greenhouse/shed for several years now. But it looks like I'll either have to build it myself or find an enterprising way to pay for someone to built it! I love all your inspirtion photos. I'd be happy with even the smallest one!

The Great Dane keeps on building sheds and coops, but not a one has been for me..........yet!
Love your woman cave!!!

Lynn Richards said...

I have half of a room to call my own, but my dream would be a small space away from the lucky you are!!! Thanks for sharing!!

Bella said...

Hi Maura, My little garden shed is a big mess :-) It's a catch all area unfortunately. I love the idea of a woman cave :-)
Sending you a big hug for taking care of those pups... I have never understood how some people can be so heartless.

My "potting corner" is part of our shed but I mostly just sit on the deck or grass and do the pots and then move them all over the yard at home as well as at the lake. I'm so anxious to get them going but it's still a bit on the cool side. It's going to be a busy week but maybe when we're back from our trip the middle of June....surely by then!!! ...Scufty
