Friday Foliage

Friday is here at last. One of the great things about the new place my boyfriend and I moved to is the big yard with room for a veggie garden and a wide front stoop that will hold a lot of potted plants. I have started looking for free and cheap planter ideas that also look great when I came up with the idea of using a teapot that had lost its lid or a thrifted pot that maybe I wouldn’t want on my table but would still be fun and whimsical as a planter. Of course I had to go on-line and see what other folks had done with this idea as it is nothing really new.

This pretty planting is from Verde Garden, she also has some fun succulents in tea cups.

Another great option for a low maintenance spot of green is a terrarium. This super cute teapot terrarium is from Wee Green Spot. Since being featured on the Etsy home page her shop has sold out and she is catching up on her back orders but keep an eye on the shop for fresh listings.

If you already have a chipped, slightly cracked or thrifted pot here is a fun post on how to make your own teapot planter from Susan Flemming of Super Mom-No Cape!.

Have a great weekend, cheers!
