Perfect Planter

Happy Weekend! I have been away from my blog this week because of the many projects around my home. I have been cleaning and reorganizing my cellar, planting in the gardens, pruning, weeding and today’s blog, my perfect planter. I have been looking for a french style planter for a while. The ones I found on the internet were rather expensive and I was not sure of their condition. While shopping at Pier One about a month ago, I spotted a planter that had a french style look to it, but it was painted black. I wanted a white one! It was on sale and I thought,”I could paint this!”

Guess what I did? I painted it white and it looks perfect! Just what I wanted!

I lined the basket of the planter with Spanish Moss and arranged some pink Impatiens (my favorite) with a few different types of Ivy. Placing a Pansy at the bottom, along with a cute garden sign ( I found on sale at Jo-Ann fabric and craft store) and a bow I made from burlap ribbon, finished the look.

It fits right under my dining room window on my front porch. I don’t have window boxes, but the planter works just as well…if not better! This is why it’s my “Perfect Planter”!
