Winning Window

Winning Window

I’m trying to go with a cheerful theme today, have you noticed?  Cheerful to me equals things that are yellow.  I was never a huge fan of yellow, but – don’t tell – it is starting to win me over!

So Maxine had this busted up window that was next in line in the burn pile.  Luckily some other crap was taking a while to burn, so she got to thinking … “Hey!  This window pane isn’t crap at all!  I’m going to save it and make it a window box instead!”  So she hung it on her shed and she’s glad she did, because it’s an old window from the barn on the farm where her husband was raised.  Aww, sentimental and cheerful AND eco-friendly!  Triple win.

    Is that a price tag hanging off of it?

    Oh it’s not fair. Now it’s going to look like I’m doing it because it was here. I actually have 6 windows in my backyard to do this with!! Except mine are two pane and I plan on putting chicken wire in the window. I love this planter box and I can’t wait to start making them. XOXO Laura

    I plan to do the same thing…attach a chain on top both sides and hang it on a wall.
