Okay, if you've read my blog for a while you know I have a bad black thumb.
I can plant em, and they look great, but I just can't keep em lookin that way!
Could it be that I haven't been home long enough to take care of the little babies?
I think that is probably the problem. So, now I'm home for a while and can plant away!
our house is on the Reynold's tour in a little over a week, so I had to get busy with my containers!
so this is what I had to work with
first up, my precious antique planter (I admittedly don't know what this thing is called)
and this plant was still thriving and I couldn't bring myself to dig her up...
then I have this. Found at Scott Antiques for 40 smackers. I'm going to use it as a planter
then we have this. Still thriving pretty well and omg it killed me to pull all of this out.
but I had to put them out of their misery before dying a long, slow death.
so, here's my fall container planting. It's amazing what will fit in the trunk of a convertible.
It went from here:
I'm gettin there! just a few dozen more pots to go!!!
a tutorial on how to make that Butterfly Chandelier that is floating all over Pinterest.
my version in progress:
thank goodness I ran out of fishing line because I would have never gone to sleep!
Level of difficulty: average.
Level of time: a lot.
p.s. after I got all the stuff to do this, I checked on Etsy and someone sells a kit.
Sometimes I just shake my head at myself.
have a great day y'all!
I'm hitting that lil white ball today! yippee!!!
