Here is the latest thing that gets me extra-super-giddy. My new windowboxes! I found these planters underneath some big ugly bushes on the side of our house last week. They were filled with roots and dirt and the roots were actually digging through the holes in the boxes into the ground. They were so discolored they had green and brown splotches all over them.
So I pulled them out, cleaned them up, primed and painted then filled with beautiful wave petunias. What do you think? I think they are perfectly romantic.
The hardest part was figuring out how to install them. I'm super cheap, so I didn't want to spend money. I basically tied a rope around the box and tied the rope around nails I hammered inside the window. The windowsill is supporting the weight of the boxes, the rope just keeps it from tipping over onto my lovely children.
Weeeeeeee! (I told you I was giddy)
