Spring has Sprung and more craft projects are DONE!


OK…right off the bat, I think it’s only fair to warn you…this entry has been deemed

“a photo overload”!


~•~ Hello Friends ~•~

Yes, ‘spring has sprung’…

…at least in my kitchen it has!

I just had to come up with a way to bring some spring cheer into my home—so what better way to do that, than to make an indoor Window Sill Box and fill it fulla pretty spring flowers!

Ya might even think it IS SPRING…if not for the snowy scene outside my window!


Here’s a closer look….I debated on what color to finish it in, I wanted it light but still wanted it to blend well with my other things.  I chose to do it in a tone that would match my tobacco cloth curtains



…and it matches pretty well…




Other window, other end of kitchen



I just used floral foam in the bottom and some Spanish moss on top of it (to hide the foam).  I have different faux flowers for each season to fill the planter…for spring I used flowering shamrocks and daffs :)  I will change it out for summer and add some geraniums. 

Love this piece it adds so much springy cheer to my kitchen… it just makes me smile :) 


    Oh and…guess what else… 

I got that good ole itch back…

She does beautiful work!
