Mimi Sue's Cottage

A home is much more than a house built of lumber, brick, or stone. A home is made of love, sacrifice, and respect. We are responsible for the homes we build. We must build wisely, for eternity is not a short voyage. There will be calm and wind, sunlight and shadows, joy and sorrow. But if we really try, our home can be a bit of heaven here on earth.

Containers

 
I found a couple of new to me items to use as planters this year in the garden.
 
This vintage orange metal fertilizer spreader.
 
 
 


And this vintage red metal garden cart.
 
 


Both from yard sales and both under $10.

Your clever planters are adorable! We are getting ready to move and we will have a blank canvas to work with....almost no landscaping. It would be fun to find items like these to use for planting. You always have the cutest ideas!

Lucky you!!!
I've been wanting similar old garden gadgets like that to plant in, as well.

Hope you got the recipe that I posted on your last post.
Give it a try... you'll love it.
By the way, it makes chicken taste yummy too :)

Warm regards, my friend.
