My Window Box is filled with....



well.... just about everything I could get my hands on. This is a window box at the shop - I filled the base with some artificial greenery to kind of hold everything in place - nestled in my leftover ornamental cabbage - added an old garden rake - tucked in some nandina berries, some ornamental grass plumes, - and oh yeh, I also placed a twiggy pocket in the front of it.



I just love the natural stuff - it's pretty and FREEEEEEE - YIPPEE!



Oh and don't you jus' love that black and white check ribbon. Got that from my sweet friends at Brenda's Flowers. I think I'll have to go back for more.

Oh I must confess, I'd been cheating a bit with my pictures - my header is actually from last year - but now that I'm getting things going I'll be sharing with you some pictures that are current.

And I'm really gonna miss you guys - but I have to be gone for a couple of days - we are getting ready for our 10th annual Christmas in the Country this Saturday. They say it may even snow a bit - now that would be soooo exciting - as long as everyone could still get here of course. But I love the snow - it is so peaceful.

So my friends - have a splendid end of the week and weekend. I'll post some pics next week. As always, thanks for stopping by and many blessings to you.

Hi Cathy,
I just happened upon your blog and have spent so much time reading and looking at all your wonderful pictures.
You have such a gift for arranging and decorating. I love all your arrangements and love that they are natural!
I hope you don't mind, but I'll be adding you to my blog list as well so I can visit more often.
Blessings to you~

I love your header. That window box is fabulous. All we have to do is look around our surroundings sometimes for inspiration. I used to hate those cabbage plants when I was younger, but as I've gotten older, I love them for fall . I wish that I had a Magnolia tree somewhere around my house. I think I'll plant one. LOL. In the meantime, I think while my neighbors are at work, I'll look around in their backyard to see if the have a Magnolia tree...
