« Part 17: Making a Blog Series - How To Part 18 of GT "Stuff" series Part 19: July 2011 Challenge »

Last month we had a “Label It” Challenge and now we have another one for you:
 

”By Hook or By Crook – Let’s Create A Nook”
Create a little “nook” in the garden, on the deck, on the balcony, or even in the livingroom and post it as a project tagged as “nook”.

A nook is: “a hidden or secluded spot” – and, of course, in this case, it includes plants!

 

Notes:
1. You can of course use a previously-posted project. Just edit it to include the “nook” tag. You might also want to post a comment here to let us know that you have added an entry.
2. There are no prizes for this challenge – it’s strictly for fun.
3. A random draw winner will be featured in the June/July GT News – so, I guess, there is a prize after all. Fame!
4. Deadline: June 10, 2011

 

All entries will be listed here: http://gardentenders.com/projects/tag/nook
