This summer I wanted to grow some cotton for decorating purposes around the house. There are cotton fields all over our area and it is beautiful looking out into the fields of white.
I thought I would go buy some cotton seed and grow a few rows. I didn't realize you had to buy huge bags of seed! Perfect for a cotton grower but not me. Thankfully my husband knows a cotton farmer and he saved me a handful of seed after planting acres and acres of cotton.
I planted the precious seed and watched it grow all summer. It doesn't take much to entertain me :) I waited and waited for the pods to pop open. Finally I began to see white in those little pods.
I love my cotton arrangement. It looks like white flower blooms.
I needed something heavy to arrange it in and I remembered I had this old galvanized thermos with the glass insert still intact.
I love this old galvanized piece filled with my "white flowers".
I have three short rows of cotton and I have plenty to decorate with around the house. I may decorate a small Christmas tree and call it my "cotton pickin" tree. It will look like snow on the tree.
I still have plenty of cotton to pick but for now I love looking out the windows and seeing my little sea of white.
Have a good week and thanks for visiting!
