Hi my friends, I wanted to share with you my newly found vintage planters.
A few weeks ago my SIL and I went to pick up a set of twin tubs from my friend, Dolly’s Aunt Bunny. You may remember that I scored treasures from her yard sale at the quilting retreat.
I spied a couple of rusty white metal planters in her yard. For me, it was instant love. Not sure how they felt about me.
Aunt Bunny sold them to me for $20 each.
The first one was a tall narrow planter with cute scroll work.
It’s newly planted, but when the plants fill in and trail I think it will be so cute.
Look at this darling circular one. I haven’t done anything with it yet. Just sat it out by my rose garden. Can’t decide if I want to plant sedums in the bowls or four cute pots. What do you think?
Now some of you may be thinking, “Aren’t you going to paint it?”. Nope, I love them both just they way they are!
Recently I was at a shop in Draper, UT. Outside there were a couple of vintage planters similar to mine (not quite as cute of course) lol! she wanted over $100 for each one. Wow, I had no idea.
How about you? Do you like things rusty, or would you paint it?
p.s. I noticed that I now have 500 followers. Yahoo! It’s time to celebrate. I will be announcing a give away later this week. Thanks so much to all of you!!!
