this brightens up a rainy sunday

i've been admiring a set of terra cotta pots on pinterest that were painted with a house number and decided yesterday that this would be my rainy day project for today while the mister finally finished getting all the tongue and groove up on the ceiling on the porch.  was i in his way? definitely. 

so now my mom and my sister each want a set. 

i work part time once a week at j. crew as a personal shopper (yes, i do it just the the discount). a few years ago we sold the cutest rainboots ever and i think i have 4 pair that have been sitting in the hall closet for a few years now.  they're getting more use now.  i loaded the bottom with some 3/4 stone, used some larger rocks in the shaft and a plastic chinese soup container with holes drilled in the bottom fit perfectly in the top.
these boots have an adorable floral strap on the side, that i didn't get in the photo :(  and those are two real birds nests next to the boots.  we found the nests between the joists of the porch.  no birds were hurt during this project, they'd long ago flown the coop.

and one more photo of my painted pots.  i'm totally digging these, so glad i tried it.
