What to do , what to do .....

What do I do with an ugly hanging basket that never grows anything and always aims itself at unsuspecting peoples heads ?
This week I've sprayed it white and filled it with balls of wool , so pretty . Next week it's going to be a Christmas decoration . Stay tuned .

Very creative young lady. If that basket is handing on your front verandah it might have another use. For any cars that might speed up your street, you could also put a ging and a lovely little packet of rocks in the basket to use at a later date. Kind regards, Anita

Hey Clare! The basket looks lovely and fresh painted white - very shabby chic! :0) Hmmm ... a Christmas decoration?!?! Well ... you certainly have me intrigued, so I shall just have to wait until all is revealed, won't I! Have a great weekend! Bear Hugs! KRIS

A much better idea. So you have a green thumb like me? I hate hanging baskets. So much watering and still nothing grows. I like your idea. Can't wait to see the Xmas decos.
