A SCALE PLANTER and HAPPY EASTER!


 Hello everyone!  I hope you have all been well.  I've truly missed visiting with all of you...
Before I say anything else, I first want to say thank you so much for your thoughtful and encouraging
comments!  Even though I may not have the time to respond to all of you right now (preparing to
move), I read each and every one.  They truly lift me up with each word, and I can't thank you
enough! :)

Okay, so now that I've had a chance to get that out to you... let's move on to this fun scale
hanging planter.  This is something I did about two years ago, but this simple idea seems to be a
 big hit on Pinterest, so I thought I would share it here again on my blog for those of you who
may have missed it.


 When I found this scale in a local antiques shop, I thought I would use it in my kitchen, but my
ceilings were too low, and it just didn't feel right in there.  So my creative juices started flowing,
and I started thinking of the different ways I could use it.  This is what I ended up with... 

...a hanging planter for some pretty spring flowers.  I made the basket using some chicken wire and
lined it with some moss that was actually growing in my garden, but I've since used moss that you can
buy at the local craft or hardware stores, such as Lowe's or Michael's.


I'm missing being able to do gardening right now... my favorite time of year, but I've finally
found a rental home that I'll be moving into very soon!  I get the keys next week!  I have
lots of painting to do before we can officially move in... lots to do!  I'm actually excited about
having a clean slate to make a cozy home that I love to come home to again... a home for me
and my girls. :-)

HAPPY EASTER WEEKEND EVERYONE!

Thanks for visiting and for your sweet comments!

'Til next time...

Jo :-)
