cottage style potting shed
Barbara's potting shed is fit for a fairytale.

Congratulations to Barbara, whose quaint cottage-style potting shed caused all of our editors to start planning a shed of their own. Barbara's photo of what she calls Crickhollow Cottage gave us a party for our eyes with all the colorful flowers and textural elements. The shed design resembles a children's playhouse, and we can't think of a better way to lure kids into the garden to get their hands dirty. Thanks for sharing, Barbara!

    Thanks so much for your kind words as well as for the gift VISA card. My garden is my passion, and Crickhollow Cottage is indeed my playhouse! Children of ALL ages need a special space where the magic still surrounds us.

    Can you imagine getting to play in this garden? It's as magical as Disney World, but with no crowds, no noise, and no waiting!

    Hi, Mallory. I haven't received an e-mail from you about the prize. I check my junk mail frequently and it hasn't been in there either. Can you try sending it again? Let me know if I need to give you my e-mail address again.

    Thanks Barbara, it's sent again to the email you used to sign up for the site. If you don't mind also checking your spam folder to make sure it didn't get lost in there by mistake, that would be great. Thanks!
