If you look around my house you'll notice that I obviously love toile but that I also like urns. Never met an urn I didn't like! As a matter of fact as you approach my house you'll be welcomed by two black (spray painted by the way) urns. I always plant a fern in them in the summer.
In the house I recently planted some urns with smaller ferns. Did you guys get your Home Depot Garden Club coupons (from the HD GC giveaway I had)? There was one for buy one house plant get one free so I bought two ferns. I already had an asparagus fern.
I had one white urn but the others were all different colors so I spray painted them all different shades of white. All these ferns are in my living room usually. I had to take them outside to take a picture because it's pouring rain and I just couldn't get a good picture of them inside.
I really love the simple unfussiness of ferns when planted in a pretty urn. Oh and I repaint my urns all the time!
I think ferns inside the home and out are just the perfect summer time plant!
LOL! O.K. the sun came out for a hot minute so I whisked them back inside where they usually are!
To answer some questions people have asked recently:
The Plates in my 4th of July post with the gingham, flowers and flags say modahome.com on the back. Although I got mine at a local shop. They seem to have lots of cute, cute plates!
I used deck paint in white from Lowe's for the black and white checkerboard pattern. They couldn't mix black deck paint for me so I used exterior black paint. I didn't go to HD or anywhere else to see if they had black deck paint.
The mirrored pediment on top of my china cabinet came from Michael's years ago.
The teapot in the teapcup birdfeeder post is just hanging from an old Shepard's hook.
The colored chalk that I use on my chalkboard I got from ebay - it's called Chalk Ink - Amazon usually carries it too
