      "Replace traditional window boxes with a row of old-fashioned Brown Betty teapots for a quirky take on the English window sill. Line them up facing the same direction to increase the humorous tone and plant them with cottage-style flowers for a charming shabby-chic look. The spout is ideal place for watering the plants.": Common Floor*

      Window sill herb garden; row of similar teapots with chives (I think). Very well done, aesthetically speaking. Would love to do this, but afraid it's not really practical.
