Postcarden: Mini Gardens By MailAuthor:Lindsey Shook
As spring comes to life outside, it’s extra frustrating for me to be trapped indoors. What with flowers blooming, trees budding and unemployed friends cocktailing at 2pm, I’m always on the look out for any way to bring a little warm weather action deskside.
These adorable pop-up mini gardens from Postcarden are picturesque postcards that unfold into tiny three-dimensional cityscapes, houses or botanical gardens. The best part? Sprinkle them with water and the enclosed cress seeds and you’ll soon have your very own patch of green sprouting at your desk, on your bookshelf, or wherever you choose to set up your verdant display. Like a snow globe for spring, anytime you glance at it you will be whisked away to a sunny city park. Well, almost.
Postcardens are available stateside at Brooklyn5and10.com, and they are offering a special on a set of all three designs through June. So pick up a few and mail them on over to me from your barstool in the afternoon sun, signed “Wish you were here!”
