I have a confession.  This fever hasn't broken.  That spring fever I spoke of feeling last month is only getting stronger.  As the fever grows, so does my husband's list of outdoor accent and planter projects.  The fever took me over last week and I bought a planter.  As I stood contemplating buying two more today while it was 9 degrees outside, I knew I had to take action.  Admitting you have a problem is the first step, right?
My name is Jess, I have spring fever, and I'm going to do everything in my power to tuck it away for the next 8ish weeks.  Think of me, pray for me, whatever you do, please send some thoughts to mother earth and maybe she'll bless us with an early spring!!

I ordered this medium galvanized planter from the Williams-Sonoma sale last week.

$100 for one of these!? Not when I can build it myself for $25! Mark this one down as a summer project! 
I've asked my husband for two of these, and two rocking chairs, and 3 more pallet boxes.  I might need to learn to use the woodshop!


  1. Ha! While the spring fever does surprise me, you snow-lovin' girl, I do like that your fever for creativity never seems to go away. :) Btw, those black planters are TDF.

  2. Haha you crack me up - love you, gf!

  3. I'm telling you... only the thought of the 50 grape hyacinth that I planted in the fall is keeping me sane right now! :) Love the black planters too!!!
