This past week I had a little time to finally get out into the back yard and do a little gardening and spruce up my window boxes that are placed above it. This year because of the timing and weather we didn't actually plant vegetables in our 3 tiered planter boxes, so instead it was filled with some flowers, purple sage and lavender, which I am very excited about. Today I would like to share with you how I added some unexpected planter ideas.
While we were on vacation visiting good friends of ours this cute planter with a water faucet spout was given to me. Instead of placing it on the patio somewhere I thought it would be cute and bring a little character to the planter boxes.
Some of you may have seen this wine bottle rack in my home, when we had the living/dining room painted it didn't make it back to the wall, it found it's place in the garden instead. In place of the bottles it was filled with a couple of Antique Glass Insulators which at one time they were used as Bud Vases.
A couple of other items that took place in the flower garden was a couple of metal candle holders that now are being used as plant stands.
And finally to give the wooden box windows a new look a couple of mason jars were filled and place in a bottle holder next to a small wire basket. The other window box was filled with an oblong wire basket
