Odds and Ends
A Touch of Summer -
While we’re busy sprucing up the yard and gardens, we shouldn’t forget to let summer shine through in our indoor decorating, as well. It’s as easy as packing your darker colored accessories away for the season and replacing them with a few summery ones.
While these ceramic watering cans do function as intended, you might also use them to house a small fabric plant or a bouquet of garden posies. However you use them, they are a perfectly delightful addition to summer decorating and only cost a dollar each.
We loved this small ceramic planter with the attached saucer. If you don’t want to plant in it, use it for a votive or tea light candleholder or plant three floating fabric flowers in a bed of decorative stones. The floating flowers come on a card of four for $1.00 and the sunflower tea lights are 3 for $1.00. It’s worth noting that these little planters come in a variety of designs and colors so you can pick one that suits your tastes. For a dollar each, why not get three and group them together on a tabletop or line them up on a shelf.
We liked this embossed 5” square ceramic pot because it reminded us of the large cement planters used outdoors. Here, we’ve used three sprays of fabric flowers anchored in some Spanish moss to make a floral display for the living room. Total cost was under $5.00.
