window boxes - summer twist

One of many fun things that I get to do at the store is my outdoor walkway.
The path that leads from the parking lot to the front door is such a blast to decorate.
Especially, the first three window boxes.

I had a stash of old wooden brooms and broom pieces.... they sat in a box for a while with no fun project in mind. Until one day it came to me, I pictured them clustered in the window boxes and I knew how fun they would be in their new home.









I only had enough brooms for 2 boxes so this one... well, I guess it has an array of found objects. I love the clock outdoors!!













last but not least...



isn't she precious









see you soon. have fun planting.
The weather here in Minnesota is glorious.
