Cottage Shutters and Window Boxes
"The windows of my soul I throw
Wide open to the sun."

I just love the shutters framing the recessed window on the Brittany cottage above. And did you notice the flower box sitting on the window's ledge? Charming, charming.

This ivy-covered cottage with shutters closed is enchanting. I'm crazy for that shade of blue.
I once lived in a pretty little townhouse with this flower box under the kitchen window. I filled it with petunias so I could enjoy their lovely fragrance wafting through the open window above my sink.
A window box might be nice under this window of our cottage.
How do you feel about shutters and/or window boxes?
