Thinking Outside of the Pot

This is certainly not a new idea, but still very unique and each person can put their own stamp on it. I love the use of different objects and the more unsual the better as planting pots. I've had this bowl(?) sitting in my garage for a while now. I picked it up at a thrift store with no clue what I'd do with it, but I knew that I loved the shape and print, so I had to have it. I tried it in different spaces in the house, I just couldn't find a spot that both of us were happy in, and that's how the little beauty ended up in the cold cold garage - but no more.

I don't know why I never thought about it, but oh well better late than never. I thought how great would be to house indoor plants and succulents in this bowl. So this is what I came up with.

While I was at it I thought the more the merrier, and after been alone all this time wouldn't it be great to have friends, so that is exactly what happened. :-)

This is just a regular cereal bowl that I picked up for 99 cents.  I love the roundness of the bowl and the "edginess" of the plant. 

This gorgeous bowl was also another lucky find. Its actually a deep purple that doesn't translate very well in the pictures.

Wishing you a beautiful Monday!
