Here’s what’s new here on Empress of Dirt and eBay where I collaborate as a blogger:
I’ve always wanted to compile one of these lists and I’m not going to pretend that every gardener wants the same things.
We all have wildly different tastes and ambitions. But I’m quite confident that if you look through the list, you will think of things you’d like to ask for (if you are a gardener) or find great ideas (if you’re buying for a gardener).
Have a look and if you have any suggestions to add, let me know.

Are you interested in the business of blogging? I was recently a guest on the Brilliant Business Moms podcast where we discussed my history (a.k.a. windy road) as a blogger, and what does well on Pinterest. You can read the article and/or listen to the podcast.
Pinterest is a free site where together we share favourite images and ideas. I compiled this list of favourite garden-inspired pinners to follow. These would be a good starting point for viewing a good variety of garden how-tos and garden art:
I gathered up a gallery of some favourite rusty garden art. Be prepared for some oxidized charm.
