  9. Thanks very much, it’s been helpful to have the plant markers as the herbs have grown bigger so I can keep track of which is which! I haven’t actually got a product page, maybe I’ll make one, thanks for the idea! 😀

  10. Writing on little stone pebbles – how cute!! Is there a page where you list where you buy some of the furniture/products from?

  11. Thanks so much! It’s definitely a work in progress, but it’s a fun project!
