      Your welcome!

  3. I loved all of your ideas! Still cold in Maine although my daffodils are blooming with snow predicted for the weekend. I did put a flowerpot of dirt in the middle of my old chair with the busted out seat and a faux fuschia in it! Anf 3 (new) volotgul GW flower pots on my front stairs with faux geraniums (B1, G2F at Joannes!)!

      We gotta do anything we can to help Spring along, right Kathy? My pansies had to be covered this week, and 2 mornings of waking up to the white stuff was not fun:(

  4. I enjoyed seeing all of your outdoor projects…. lots of great vintage inspiration!

    Loved this post with all the garden ideas. I’ve used many of them in my gardens over the years, but also saw new ideas. I never throw away a broken pot or anything metal because I’m sure there is a place for it somewhere. Another place to pick up “junk” is a metal salvage yard if they are willing to sell items. As the old saying goes “one person’s junk is another person’s treasure.”

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      Definitely, Luanne! There’s something about old metal pieces that look so beautiful filled with natural plantings! Glad you enjoyed it:)

  8. Carmen Montmarquet says:

  10. I really like how you repurpose and restyle your vintage finds. Your garden has so much personality. And I LOVE the chippy goodness throughout. Thanks for all of your creative ideas, Lora.
