Flower Pot Parade

Posted: May 19th, 2009 | Author: Katie | Filed under: Simple Solutions |

After this post - I promise - I’m done with flowers for awhile.

*That is really not true at all because this next weekend I’m planting flowers in my pots using Kirsty’s recommendation*



Only can get better from here…

From her link on my newsletter, many of you enjoyed the secret from her, including my friend Lori and my mom, who both worked on their flowering pots this last weekend. I can’t wait to see if Kristy’s idea works! (And Lori, I can’t wait to see yours. You know I will be doing a drive by!)

Anyways, after sending out my May Newsletter, it was so nice to hear back from many of you and I’m just so happy that you enjoyed it and can benefit from some of the ideas that I share with you. Just like Kristen from We are That Family loves baskets to use for storage - my new favorite has become the ‘flower pot.’ And for those who wanted to see more of the flower pot storage that I have going on in my house, here goes the flower pot parade!




{Pencil/Pen holders and a napkin holder}


Yep, those are flower pots from Pottery Barn


{Plain ones in the garage}


But it was truly like Where’s Waldo in my house - because as you will see right away - they all have one thing in common….

{Fabric Softeners}


{Stationary - not a flower pot, but close enough?}




…Someone likes polka dots!

And if you didn’t see the other ones I showcased in my newsletter (warning: more polka dots), or you would like the secret flowering tip from Kristy @ Momedy, along with other fellow bloggers creative flowering ideas, you can click the side button and I’ll send  you my May Flowering Ideas Newsletter right away along with some very exciting Etsy and Giveaway news!

    Oh, I am so impatient to see how your impatiens turn out :D Love your mulch and your pots! I’ve never planted them in pots so I’ll be interested to see how it works, I’m sure it will be beautiful. Thanks so much for the shout-out! :)

    Loving the polka dot storage. How cute are the socks? Love your site.

    That’s a really cute idea. I use old clay flower pots to hold my colored pencils.

    NOOOO - I just planted my window box last week and didn’t use the trick! That’s my only shot and planting flowers this year.
