Ladies & Gentlemen, will you please direct your attention to my back door? What a lovely way to greet visitors! What a darling vignette – how rustic, how charming! How does she do it? She’s a regular Martha – that Ann is so lucky – always finding treasures on the side of the road!
Yes, it is. It really is. The
shit milk box. Would you care for a closer look? The flowers are Nicotiana and the bright green vine is an Ipomoea batatas Margarita . That’s right, I planted flowering tobacco. I thought it only fitting that I plant my old, shitty habit in the box.
Admit it, all you nay sayers… The box looks great. And I swear to you – it doesn’t smell! Doesn’t it make it even lovelier just knowing what it’s been through? (if that’s true, then logic dictates that I’m a f*ing beauty queen!)
Today is a busy day. This morning, I am teaching my knitting class (geez- haven’t posted a thing about the class – it’s great and I love it!) and then it’s off to take a girlfriend to lunch for a belated birthday celebration.
and like all great beauty queens everywhere, I must add world peace to my to-do list …. hmmmm, where to begin? ~taps forehead~ ….oh, I know, I will promote world peace by taking shit and turning it into a thing of beauty …..oops! I mean poo.
ps. after you are done posting a comment about my lovely planter (and you know you want to), run on over to Cara’s, she’s selling her fabulous photos! get ’em while they’re hot!
It looks great. I admit I was hoping you were giving up on it and I was gonna steal it on garbage day.
Yeah, yeah (she says grudgingly) if I didn’t know any better, I’d say it looked all shabby chic and cute and all and I’d appreciate the irony of planting tobacco and stuff.
BUT STILL! THERE WAS SHIT IN THERE! SHIT YOU COULDN’T IDENTIFY!!!
Okay. I’m done. I promise I’ll never mention shit on your blog again. ;-)
Thanks for the link!
The planter looks great! Are you sure you didn’t come up with the story about the poo to scare people off from stealing your new treasure? Keep an eye on Kathleen when she visits or you will have one less milk box/planter! LOL
It looks lovely Ann. Would you like to come to my house for a visit to help me plant a garden? I could use a talented eye for plants like you have… :)
Wonders with a shit-box! It’s probably one of the cutest things I’ve seen and I might just have to get me one of those. I absolutely LOVE the planting of the Nictotiana! I bow…
I always get the most comments on my “Poop” posts too. Just look at Dooce, why the hell do you think she gets so many readers?
How are we supposed to tell shit from shineola when you turn one into the other? Leave it to the Swine to make lemonade from lemons. :)
That is very cool looking planter. Aren’t they all the rage right now?;-)
That’s some good shit you got there, Ann. And I mean that in the best possible way.
Brilliant! Especially the Planting of Tobacco…nice touch…
Ann, glad you liked the Feet Up Friday photo on my blog. You can use it if you like. I’ll post about where I found it later as I have a small file of wonderful photos I want to use, and then I’ll tell all!
Wow! I love the nicotiana! Is that right outside your door? It looks sooooo pretty!
