A "Basket" Window Box



Just sharing an idea with you today. On my screened in back porch I have a window that is kind of high - our swing is in front of it but it always looked like it needed something. So one day going to visit my mom, I stopped by a yard sale and got these great french door frames for $5.00 each - didn't know what I'd do with them but I just had to have them. Turned out, they were jus' what I needed for that window. I painted them and placed them on each side of the window, attached a cast-off shutter to them and used that as my base for my basket. I filled up my "great big" basket with ferns and geraniums and here you have it - A "Basket" window box.

Happy Creating Friends!

You are TOO creative. I need you in Alabama to do me some flower arrangements for outside (next year)!! I am going to start looking for things now. I have already thought about the gallon cans from the cafeteria....loved that!
