A walk to the potting shed

I thought I would share some *rusty whites* from
outside my potting shed today.

My shed still needs some work inside, but it will probably be a work in progress for awhile. I do have great plans to get it finished next year though.

This basket and the window box (in the 2nd photo)
hang outside the front of the shed.
There was a wooden window box here , but it rotted
and fell apart this year so I opted to put a
wire one up and I do like it.

love the curly wire

Love these window box brackets too.
I don't even remember where I bought these
as I have had them for several years.
Four of them just perfect for two window boxes.

This is still the old wooden window box on the west
side of the shed. It is falling apart too so we
will have to replace it soon as well.

I just plopped these clay pots and insulators in here
for now until next year when it is planted again.
I might put some greens in it at Christmas time
as I think that would look great!

I am linking up with White Wednesday again this week. I think by now you know the drill , but just in
case you don't...visit Kathleen over at Faded Charm
for more beautiful posts.

Love your shelf brackets, I seem to be drawn to these things lately, Except I'm wanting to use them as book ends. Am I weird?

When we came over I walked Jon into the potting shed. He asked where the bathroom was since it's clearly a house :) lol

Hi Sandi, I love your rusty white planters! The window box is amazing:)

I'm so glad you mentioned making the crinkly ribbon when you visited my blog. I knew I'd seen a tutorial on it but I couldn't remember whose blog it was, I drove myself crazy trying to remember! I'll have to try my hand at making it:)

I have those same metal brackets. I got mine from either Home Depot or Lowe's, can't remember which.
