NEW THRIFT FINDS

 

 

 

 

I visited one of my favorite resale shops last week and picked up these great Jackson and Perkins wall pots. I love them! Well maybe not the color of them, but stay tuned I am thinking lime green-what do you think? They will be on the wall of my garden shed and it is painted black. I may even tip them sideways and let the flowers look like they are spilling out. I have two free days this week an I am not answering the phone or the door-I am going to be out of pocket as we Southerner's say-I am planning on being in my garden! I am joining Debbie at Debbie-Debbiedoos for her party.

I like those pots a lot. And I think that blue is a nice complement to the green wall you have, esp. if you have greenery in them.

These will be so pretty on your wall. I like the blue, but think the green would be striking against a black wall. Let us see what you decide!

Those are some great finds. Looking forward to seeing them on your garden shed wall.

Those pots are so pretty. They'll look great with flowers spilling out of them. That was a great find.

I love that saying "out of pocket"! I think painting the wall pots green and then tipping them is a wonderful idea. They will look so pretty filled with flowers on a black wall. I'm visiting you from Debbie-doos.

Oh, I definitely think the lime green would look great against the black shed. I found you at Debbie's Newbie Party. I have a pie recipe linked there. I am a new follower of yours and I'd love it if you visited me and followed me as well.

Lime green will be a perfect color! Have fun in your garden this week. Blessings, Vicky

Great pots, I like the idea of 'tipping' them so the flowers look like they're spilling out. Being a southern girl too, I'm the same way when I have projects - no phone, no doorbell :) Enjoy your two free days!

Looking forward to seeing the finished projects. I spent Thursday of last week cleaning two flower beds and my old body suffered from it for a couple of days so today I am ready to tactcal another bed or two. I use that expression often as most southern do. Peace

I will totally be back to check out your gardening information. I'm a wannabe gardner. I know nothing, just learning from blogs and internet. It is so fun visiting all these great blogs! Thank you so much for visiting my newbie blog via Debbiedoos. "Woof" from my pups to yours! I look forward to keeping in touch! Take care, Sherry@TheCheerfulNest

Olga said...

Nice finds! I need to go shopping for pots and planters myself.

Hi, Vicky,
Just wanted to let you know that I was in Natchez last week for the pilgrimage, and as we were eating, I was sure I saw you sit down at the table next to me.
I went over and said, "Aren't you my Mississippi artist friend?" LOL. Well, of course, it wasn't you, but she was sure a dead ringer.
Happy gardening.
