The Plant Container No One Wanted

SONY DSC

I had picked up this plant container last year {just before Easter} on clearance, for my booth.  I thought it was cute and a bonus was that it had the plastic insert in it for putting some potted plants inside it.

Easter 2013

I liked it so much that I kept it on our dining table until after Easter and then brought it to my booth.  Last year it also held tulips, but I was lucky enough to find them in pots that fit perfectly inside.

It sat the whole year in my booth without any takers, so I brought it home with me just before Easter this year.

I put a couple of mason jars filled with water and some tulips and babies breath in it.

And it graced our dining table for another Easter.  I’m sure I will enjoy using it, even if no one else wanted it!

Such a lovely container for your tulips! I think the worn look of the wood is a perfect contrast to the cheerful color of the flowers. Maybe it was meant to be for you to have it a little longer~~~Blessings for a wonderful week~~~Roxie

It's beautiful, Kathy! I can't believe no one was interested in your box. It looks perfect on your dining table, bet you are happy now that it didn't sell!

You were meant to have it.

It is awesome - so homey and unique and spring-y. I adore it and love how you made it your own.

How is business going? Having a good spring? We're supposed to get warm this week. Kath, I swear I am gonna go postal if we go from all this grey cold rain straight to humid unbearable heat of summer. Seriously, I kid you not. POSTAL.

You do a beautiful job displaying the planter that nobody wanted :)

Manuela@A Cultivated Nest said...

Love it! It's the perfect size. I have a couple but they all need 4-6 mason jars in them and I'd love to find something smaller like this.

Maybe put a fake plant in it when you display it in your booth? Some people have no imagination!
