Garden Treasures




We found this at a yard sale last year, it looked interesting. Thought it might be a plate holder, something you would use at a party to hold yummy treats, tried it but it didn't look right with plates so it was off to the garden and ended up on my deck




Stuck some flowers pots in it and voila, transformed into a plant stand



We did a bathroom redo a couple of years ago and when taking the mirror down broke the corner off of the mirror making it unusable for the bathroom but works pretty well in the garden




           The broken end is to the ground, so you don't see that it is damaged and makes it pretty stable. Helps distract from the fence.

Last but not least...could not resist showing off the hydrangeas, they are beautiful this year


Happy Gardening

I would have immediately thought it was a plate stand too, but I love it in the garden! I also love the idea of the mirror out there. Reusing things like that just jazzes me.

It all looks wonderful. I wish I had hydrangeas. I have to enjoy my mother's instead.
