Beautiful Sunny Day

What a beautiful day it was today. Sunny and not too cold. Great day to have a tag sale. Usually I don't get much time to tag sale since they are usually more in the Summer when we're working so I was thrilled to run across one this early.
I love anything I can put a plant in. Some of the containers I've picked up in the past have been a bit small but now I know I can usually plant a succulent and it will stay alive and as long as there's drainage. That' s why I love finding colanders....built-in holes!!! The silver bowl will have to hold a removable pot. NO HoLeS!!! the pencil box is just that...I'm not going to try to do anything with that but just enjoy it for what it is.

Hen and Rooster salt and pepper shakers, too cute!!!set of metal salt shakers I plan on making little paper banners to stick inside the holes....I think?? Love the little lock.

Now looking at this picture all I can think of is Christmas!!! Red, white and green, but the inside of the tin box really is pale yellow. Not sure what I want to do with the laddles yet. I could try bending them and make a candle holder but that would ruin them and I have way too many candle holders anyways. Oh I just thought of'll have to check back and see what I come up with.
Well enjoy the rest of the weekend.......I have to go plant something.

Hi Carole,
Thanks for the sweet comments.
You did much better than I did on Saturday. I didn't get much at the garage sales, but maybe this week.
Chat soon,

Hi Carole!
I would love to be in Old Saybrook in this very moment, and go to a tag sale with you!
The colander is beautiful and so are the salt shakers!
Have fun with them!

I love the idea of planting in a collander. What a great idea! Great finds all the way around.
