Old Fashioned Window Boxes

window

I love window boxes!  I’m talking adore every little part of their sweetness and beauty!  However, my house really can’t have window boxes…..its a long story that ends in bitter sadness and then a quick but effective switch to the “over the railing flower boxes.” 🙂  But if any of you lucky ducks out there have window boxes or are thinking of getting window boxes, than know you have my utmost love and admiration!

Below are a few of my most favorite window box ideas and their sources.  I hope they bring you some wonderful inspiration!

This first one has amazing pops of color!  Don’t you just love their use of a hot pink window frame?!

This example really has the feel of the 1800’s to me.  Earthy, textural, and wild!  Love!

Now this window box isn’t outside, it’s inside, and features potted herbs.  A wonderful option for those out there, like me, who can’t drill holes into their siding.

I can’t tell what I love more about this next one….the robin’s egg blue shutters, or the varying tones of green used?  I guess it must be all of it! 🙂

Clean, soft, and very happy, these lovely shades of pink and rose geraniums are lush and perfect for window boxes!

Whether you put them outside or inside, make sure you have a little pot of nature’s pretties somewhere to greet you every morning!

    Have a blessed week!
