entry garden bench…

ok, it’s kind of a bench…  my husband’s been out of town, and couldn’t build one, so, I grabbed two of my garden urns, an old plank board from the garage, and an architectural piece— instant bench!

the bucket is full of fairy roses, some dried, some fresh, and has a piece of the numbered burlap ribbon on the front.  and my chalkboard window found its new home here, too.

the light coming in the front door was so bright, I went with it and added a milky action to the pics.
