Unique Planters Found in the Store

 I am dreaming about spring and warmer weather, and with the cold weather we are having in Colorado it won’t get here soon enough!! I am tired of the brown, and cold. I want COLOR, and more COLOR!!

Since it is too cold to plant and we can’t plant outside until Mother’s Day, I am collection some new (OLD) planters for my spring planting. I am also collecting small planters for inside the store! Now I just have to get to the store to get plants for them 🙂

All of the unique planters I am sharing today can be found right here in the store, so you can get your new (OLD) unique planters before spring gets here!

 

 

If you want to see some of my unique planters, just stop by the store. I have many that I just love looking at!

Tag me in a photo with your unique planters! and spring color! We love sharing.

I hope you all feel inspired by todays pics, and unique planter ideas. As always thanks for stopping by today to see what we are up to!

Look at the stunning centerpieces that you can put together with vintage ball jars and milk bottle holders.
