Vintage White Planters




I spent a little time this afternoon pampering some of
my indoor plants.  They've been put into new pots,
fed, watered and trimmed.  I think I heard a few
 little happy sighs when I was all done.  haha.

    1. Miss Maiden is coming right along! Some new growth, too, so I've stopped holding my breath over her.
      I dare not move her, but she's in a little white pot, too and would look cute on the window seat with the others.
      Not taking that chance, though!

  8. I was wondering the same about Miss Maiden Hair. I guess we are all holding our collective breath!
    I'm in love with your pots. Might some wander upstairs into the shop at some point? :-)

  9. Yes I see smiles on all of their faces. I know mine when move up just go wild. I like your pots. I don't know if they are found in connection with your auction work but they are all beautiful containers.

    1. Yes, they do look happier when they get a little TLC, don't they? The pots are from the auctions...some from the trash and some I bid on!

  10. What lucky plants you have to be pampered by such salubrious habitats . . . . was the sigh from them or was it from me appreciating the beauty and design by your gifted hand ? . . . . your sign on your sidebar says "be classy". Well classy should be your middle name . . . you ooze it . . . :)

  12. You do so good at auctions! It wouldn't make a difference to me though. I can't keep indoor plants alive. :)

    1. You should ask your florist at the grocery to give you a hard to kill plant and try again. A philodendron is the best, really. (far right) I think the thing people do wrong the most is the watering. Most plants do well with a once a week soak in the kitchen sink....a slow drip from the faucet until the entire pot is saturated and draining from the bottom. That and some indirect light from a window and I bet it will do fine!

  14. Cute planters. I especially like the white one with the handle. And, who doesn't love a little pampering? I need to do the same. I know my plants are root bound and they would probably scream for joy, if I let them loose and let them breathe a little. I give them haircuts occasionally, but I'm sure repotting would make them go Woo Hoo!

    1. When our plants sigh and say Woo Hoo, it's all good! haha....Mine were long overdue for a makeover!

  20. Very pretty. Perhaps when the summer winds down I will find myself sprucing up a few of my own plants.
    There is a part of me that thinks I might do a little rearranging of the house in the months to come.
    It sounds like fun anyway.
    :0)
