Have I ever told you that I’m totally crazy about window boxes? Well, if not, now you know. I love, love, love them. I think that if you could look up the definition of “pretty” in the home decorating dictionary, there’d be a photo of a window box!
I’ve always had a thing for them, but I really fell in love with window boxes when we drove through rural France to attend our French friend’s wedding a decade ago. Nearly every little cottage was adorned with a postcard-perfect one overflowing with happiness – just like you’d imagine it to be.
We stayed at the home of friend’s parents, and we had a view from our room of their pretty garden shed with a window box of flowers. I remember thinking back then that, someday, I wanted to have a pretty garden shed in my yard too. I know, I know, I dream big, don’t I?!? Sheesh. You know you have a home decor problem when your 10-year plan involves a pretty garden shed with a window box, not a million dollar home in the Hollywood Hills. 😉
Well, we built a pretty nice shed a few years ago, and I’ve been itching to get to this project!
I’m so excited that today we finally installed one! (Thanks for the help, Dad – as usual!) It’s painted the same color as my turquoise blue doors, Martha Stewart Artesian Well (MSL 117).
The flowers still have a lot of growing to do – in fact, they really look quite sad right now. But I have high hopes for them. I’ll have to show you another pic once it gets fuller.
I can’t wait to fill it with all kinds of seasonal decor as the seasons change. The possibilities are endless!
Now I can tick “Own a window box” off the bucket list, lol. (I’m joking; well, OK, almost).
So do you have a thing for window boxes too? Do you have one? If so, let’s be window box friends :-).
Until next time,
