Since I’ve started shopping for my booth at the Antique Mall, I’ve really started going to lots more estate sales etc. And as would be expected, I often find things that I would really like to keep!
Recently I found these two cast iron vintage planters for $5.00 a piece at a sale! My son said they would bring a lot more than that at the Antique Mall!
We had beautiful weather here on Monday-temperature in the seventies-so I spent the day planting some pansies and ornamental cabbages in my pots in front of the porch.
The only thing I had to do to them was drill a few holes for drainage, fill with potting soil and plant! And the black and white is a perfect compliment to our house with white siding and black shutters!
I was lucky that there were 2 of them! You can also see in this picture an old fireplace grate that I’ve lined with a mat and planted. Sorry the sidewalk is so dirty-guess that means we’ll have to drag out the pressure washer!
I ran out of pansies before I got to the pots on the back porch, but I did have a few that I tucked in among the impatiens in this old log planter. I moved my steps that were in the post for Halloween back to the back porch and love the added height that they give to this old planter!
Thanks for stopping by!
