Samovors, Herbs, and Dogs!

Several weeks ago I remember seeing a photo in either a magazine or blog where the person had planted inside different vessels and such.
It was such a cute idea, I immediately started digging around in boxes in the garage for containers I knew I had stored away.
I came up with these four samovors and coffe pots that no longer worked, drilled holes in the bottom for drainage, and planted wonderful herbs.
What a sweet presentation for your kitchen window or counter.
And a great way to repurpose items that no longer function as they once did.
These will be in the upcoming Trade Days sale.


And then I turn around and Effie is climbing out of the fish pond....you may remember she is part of the "White Family" that came to "visit" about a month ago (seems longer :)......
They say once you name them, they are yours.
And how could you not love a face like this....dirt and all?
I do love my mammals!

  3. "She" loves to do this, but for some reason yours look much better! Do you think it has anything to do with the fact that I sometimes nibble on "hers"???

    Have a wonderful week!

    Purrs!

  4. Effie is f'in adorable! LOL I just realized that I won't be able to attend your Trade Days this go-round. Hubby & I are taking the grands to see Peter Pan on the 15th. Dang it! There's just not enough time nor enough days!

    It looks like "The White Family" is settling in quite nicely!
