Show and Tell

My home is ready for fall.




I white washed the back boards this summer because everything I put in the window box (click to see how I made the window box) showed up better on a light background.


For more Show and Tell posts go over to Kelli's House.

Good morning Jean, I love the window boxes out side. You you leave them and and change the items? I started one for family history collection. But have not finished.

You did a wonderful job, it looks professionally done, the display is nice, lends a nice touch and you can see it from the front of the house. I have no art ability, I can't even draw a straight line.

I love your home and all the deco., but most of all I love the window box. We took the last window like yours out this year, and I put them to use for doors on my wall of crystal! I wanted to paint a rooster on one, gosh I wish the old owners would have left more of the old windows in.
Such a neat idea!!!!!
