“Arranging a bowl of flowers in the morning sun can give a sense of quiet in a crowded day – like writing a poem, or saying a prayer.”
-Anne Morrow Lindbergh
I think the same goes for potting a plant.
What is it about sinking our hands into the soil, you know? 🙂
I got the basket on the far end of the shelf from my Mom a while back. Seems like I found it in her yard sale “sell” pile. Seems like I squealed, “Ooh! I want this!” when I saw it. Seems like she let me take it home for free. 😉 (Thanks again, Mom)
Since it was so close to the color of the shelf, we decided to give the bottom a coat of white spray paint. I covered the top half and the inside with a plastic sack, and sealed the bottom edge of the painters tape with some glazing medium in hopes of creating a nice, crisp line.
I found the ($12) shelf several years ago at a flea market in Prattville, the “Be Kind” sign was made by my friend, Susie, and I made the shell art at my Mom’s house a few years back.
Got the cute little plant pot from my friend, Shannan, and the blue and white bowl is an old eBay find.
I’m thinking about painting the inside of the front door next. I used Photoshop to see what it would look like if I used a charcoal gray color:
What do you think? Should I go for it?
