when the creator of these adorable little postcardens emailed me a while back, i instantly fell for the idea. it’s a postcard that opens up into a pop-up silhouette of a building, cityscape or apartment, and it arrives with a packet of seeds to plant inside to create a darling little mini-garden. the results are so sweet, and so creative, i couldn’t help but love them.
but back then, you could only buy them in the EU, and it just seemed cruel to torture you with the cuteness and then tell you they weren’t available. fortunately, aimee emailed last week to let me know that they’re finally available in the US at brooklyn 5+10!
these are such a perfect little gift because they come ready to address and ship – there’s virtually no effort required on your part. i love the idea of sending these to your favorite gardener, or someone you love who’s living in an apartment with no outdoor space whatsoever. each one comes boxed into a postcard-sized set, complete with pop-up garden and seeds, and sprouts to create the prettiest little garden. at $12.95 each, this is a perfect “just thinking of you” gift for someone far away.
