I usually don't like to keep the plants I buy for indoors in the containers they come in. So when I found a large white gravy boat on clearance at Target a few weeks I ago I knew it would make a great planter.
I planted some little Grape Hyacinths and some mini daffodils in it!
I've planted various Paperwhites and Jonquils in this black transferware tureen all winter
This Campanula is planted in a small galvanized bucket from IKEA. This is actually a spring through summer flowering perennial. I'll plant it in my garden when it starts to look a little tired. Actually all the potted flowers get planted in my garden when they're spent. Double the bang for my buck as most of them will either come back next year or bloom again now in my garden. In the mean time they brighten my interiors!
Don't forget that this weekend I have a guest post by one of my readers and also check out the beautiful "Inspire Me" board that Karen made! Let me know if you make one as I'd love to see it! Have a great weekend!
