An indoor garden.........

My favourite room in the house still is and I think always will be the kitchen.  I have been growing herbs on the window sill all winter but I decided to spruce it up a bit by adding a little widow box made from recycled wood.  The licence plate on it I got at a local antique store, I think it used to be a moped plate.  Just a touch of spring on a cold February day...........



I also brought in some forsythia branches in the hopes that they may sprout for another touch of spring indoors....


Aside from the moped plate I also picked up this sign when shopping with my good friend Chrissy......I just love the way it looks, a perfect addition to my kitchen.


Have a good week everyone xo

What a charming sign! I love finding quirky pieces like that. The plate was a great addition to the window box, too. Oh, how I wish I could grow herbs like that. I have a few but the Parsley is the only one that has survived :)~M
