Rain Boots

April showers bring May flowers, so while I wait for those showers, I decided to bring my rain boots inside to add a little color to our living room.

I love re-purposing items into flower vases in unconventional ways.  Flowers look great displayed anywhere, so way not spice it up a bit?

The arrival of spring always moves quite slowly here in Michigan, so I try to bring it indoors as much as I can until my garden is in full swing!  I see all of your gorgeous gardens well on their way, and I am just itching to get out in mine!  I will share outdoor photos as soon as I can, but in the meantime, I hope you enjoy the splashes of color I give you indoors!

Thank-you very much, Courtney at French Country Cottage and Debra at Common Ground for featuring my vintage ice cream bucket of blooms!

    I have been collecting children's boots at rummage sales so I can do a row of planted boots on the front porch.
