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!

  • 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.

  • Man, did Remy and I have a standoff this morning. All because she didn’t want to wear socks with her boots. She threw a massive tantrum, and I yelled at her. Afterwards, we went for our walk and everything was back to normal. That is, aside from her puffy eyes and tear-stained face. My poor girl. Parenting can be so hard sometimes. Thank goodness for children being so resilient. 
That disaster behind me is nearly gone. We’re currently installing the last of our kitchen shelves, and our new sink arrived this morning. I’m excited to have a less cluttered spare room!
Have a wonderful week, everyone. This room has not yet been touched by us. It is our master bedroom. Everything about it (aside from our furniture) is exactly the same as when we purchased our home. I think that if we do list in the near future, it will be the only room in our house that we did not renovate. Part of me wants to stay just to finish it. A small part.
