Whimsical Repurposed Flower Containers

I am sure I am not alone when I say I buy things with good intentions of doing something with them.

This was true when I purchased flowers and plants in pots from my local greenhouse and Costco that I intended on putting in a flower bed.  

As you can see there were lots of plants to choose from.IMG_1478

These found their way in my cart!!!


Needless to say, time got away from me and I didn’t get that flower bed dug and I was at that point of do something now or lose the plants…

I had no planter pots to put them in so I did the only thing I know how  to do -IMPROVISE.

Since I collect and sell vintage trinkets, treasures and fun things, I didn’t have to go far to find something I could use as a planter.

I choose an old bundt pan, an old angel food pan and a vintage agate gray enamel bowl.

The hubs drilled holes in the baking pans but I opted not to put holes in the vintage enamel bowl (after all I have ideas for it when the blooms are all gone (stay tuned – you will see it again in my bathroom  update)). I put rocks in the bottom of the enamel bowl before filling with soil to allow some sort of drainage.

The pans were filled with soil, plants added, all were well watered and I am still enjoying the blooms.

Finding new ways to use old things….It’s A Wandaful Thing!!!
