window box vase diy.DSCN6151if you have been following my blog lately, you might have noticed that i write a post about plants at least once a week. 

DSCN6140and why not? it is summer, after all. :-)

this particular diy was one that was featured here before i began blogging on wordpress. the original inspiration for the window box came from urban outfitters.

“it is a fairly straight-forward project. what you need is:

1. wood

2. nails

3. a saw

4. small vases

5. stain (optional)

we chose not to stain our window box, only because most of the wood found around our home is natural or reclaimed. almost any color would look fantastic, though!

p.s. today is my nephew’s 1st birthday! congratulations on turning a year old, little guy. :-) 

we love you more than anything!

  1. Hi Scarlet! This is Isabel from shoebox-living. Thanks for stopping by my blog the other day. I’ve spent a solid 30 minutes reading thought some of your posts! Love the story about your little green house! I know all about living in small spaces as me and my BF are tucked into a 25 sqmt apartment in Hong Kong! With a lot of personality and character though :) sometimes smaller is better!

    Can’t wait to see more from the inside of your home :)

    Hugs Isabel

  2. What a cute little planter! I’d be all over making one if I weren’t 100% sure that my trouble making cats would knock it over in seconds!

  • Welcome, friends! My name is Emory. I am a wife, mother of two (one earthside and one with the angels), and an animal rescuer. This is our life on the Canadian prairies.

  • Early morning post (before I start painting our living room walls). We viewed our first acreage in four years last month. While the outside of the property was one hundred times more appealing than the interior, it’s inspired us to see more. We’re country folk at heart- both being raised on farms and acreages. We probably will not stop until we find that piece of prairie land that whispers our names. 🌾💛 Happy birthday, husband. I’m sorry that your birthday doesn’t always go as planned. Also, transitioning from you being gone for weeks, to then being home for a few hours, only to leave again is anything but smooth at first. But know that Remy and I do love and appreciate you so much. I hope that you have a wonderful year (since we’ll probably be spending much of it apart), wherever you now are.
