Growing with my Girls had no Mary statue- but that didn’t
stop them! They painted signs for their garden deticated
to Our Lady! I think this is adorable!

Also find this Mary stepping stone that was crafted
by Growing with My Girls. So cute!

swimming and crafting! Cute stuff!

Indoor Mary Garden Ideas

I love the idea of crafting a Mary Garden. I found some
great directions over on Wildflowers and Marbles. These
ones were made for the immaculate conception, but they
could be tweaked for any Mary occasion or Mary Garden! 🙂

  3. I am planning to do some Mary/Ladybug activities with my son the first week of May. One idea I have that I am going to adapt from "Big Book of Catholic Traditions" is to make a birdbath from a terracotta pot and drain plate and decorate with fingerprint ladybugs and write "Hail Mary" prayer around the rim of the drain plate. I was thinking of creating a Mary Garden this year and making this the center piece. A Mary statue in the center of the birdbath would be beautiful but as of right now I don't have one. I will definitely post this on my blog when we do it.

    I just posted about Mary Garden Baskets we made for Mom's Day last year. I thought you might like to see them.

    I linked to your Mary posts in the post as well, since your site is so wonderfully rich in ideas. Thank you!

    Putting up some ornaments can definitely enhance the uplifting mood of the garden. I’m pretty sure that everyone who will pass by in front of your garden will be amazed with that design. I applaud you for infusing your creative ideas in some areas of your house! =) Great job!
