Decorative Greenhouse Project

On a small side porch off of this old house, sits my mini greenhouse. Purely decorative, it will soon hold blossoming flowers. I will make sure it is filled with color.  I found six large, old windows at an antiques store in Smalltownland, but you could find your at salvage stores, flea markets, etc....



Constructed with old windows, it is a project that anyone can build.  The six windows MUST be the same size.  They can all be very small, medium, or large, it really doesn't matter.  I used "L" bracket to hold the base together and my husband used long screws to attach the, "roof".  Other options would be to put feet on the bottom or, as a friend did, build a small deck as the greenhouse base, for it to sit on.  She moves her mini greenhouse around her farm.  Mine will sit right here on the side of the house. 


I am also thinking of building a small one with some old tin for roofing. 


And, now on to other pressing news.....




I pulled Inger's name out of my Krispy Kreme Hat this morning as the winner of my book giveaway.  

Inger, just e-mail me with your address and I will get it out to you tout de suite!
