I usually fill the rungs of the ladder in my guest room with old things, but it occurred to me that since the ladder sits right next to the window, I should take advantage of that natural light and use it as a plant stand – at least through the summer and fall months.
I took down the cafe lights I had hung in there (seen here), because I’m hoping to move the lights to either our front patio or back porch soon. I want to give the front patio a mini-overhaul this summer, and the lights will be perfect for it, but if that doesn’t happen, I can use them on the back porch, which I’ve never shared on the blog before. It’s an awkward space to photograph, but it’s on my to-do list.
I’ve never planted petunias in a pitcher before, but I figured it was worth a try, and they look so pretty in it.
The took the mini galvanized bucket full of flowers off of the pegboard organizer in my kitchen, and it’s bloomed really well there, so I hope it does just as well in the guest room.
Speaking of this guest room, I’ve taken to calling it my “she shed”, since it really was once an old shed that we converted into a guest room.
I mainly as a photo studio space, because the lighting is wonderful most of the time, but I love having it to use for occasional overnight guests as well.
I scored the rusty old wheel several months ago, when we were passing through Dodge City, Kansas.
The owner was going out of business, so I got it at a great price.
My husband informed me that Dodge City is one of the windiest cities in the United States. I’m not a big fan of wind, but I loved the old buildings and character of the town, and wished we could have spent a little more time there.
I used another galvanized bucket on the table next to the ladder to hold some wildflowers I picked yesterday.
They bloom in a small patch on the side of our gravel road, and I look forward to them every year.
Remember the blue and pale purple glass bottles I shared a few days ago? I’ve listed them in my online shop HERE, but I’m enjoying how gorgeous the look with the light shining through them in my she shed until they sell!
