Hey there everyone! It’s Friday- and a big Woohoo!! Your thrifty girl has been finishing up a couple of little projects to began my larger project, (I’ve finally mustered up the desire to freshen up the dining room). But moving along – I’ve had this planter hanging on the wall and just didn’t get to buying the coco fiber to re-line it.
Back in the winter I dressed it up with natural clippings
Well it’s summer (almost over) and I still haven’t touched it yet…Then I remember seeing how burlap was used as a liner, well, I didn’t have any of that either.. but what I do have plenty of is fabric. So – I figure I’d give that a try. I found this in the pile and figure it blends perfect with the shabby wrought iron look.
Found a plant that needs re-potting (my staghorn fern) and a few cactus for filler.. Simple little project finished for zero dollars. The fabric adds a bit of color to the wall space.
I tested it out and yes the water goes through.
Awhile back I received lovely new art ordered from HoeMama. His artwork is inspired by women who love to nurture, encourage, and build people up – sort of a “gardener of people”. I fell in love with this particular piece. The beauty of the woman and how he depicted her in the garden was very eloquent. I can’t wait to get it framed and hung. You can view more of his pieces here:
Let’s move onto Friday Finds:
This vintage bird cage was $12.00 – I have plans for it and it doesn’t include a bird :)
A mirrored tray always comes in handy – a Goodwill find for $3.75
And this cute little hand painted birdie planter by Bob White for Napcoware for $1.00
I’m not usually into birds, but there was something about this one that caught my eye to bring it home and like I said for $1.00 it sure didn’t break the bank – giggles…
not such a bad find…I’ll figure out some use for her. One last thing, I want you guys to find some friday fun to start a great weekend! Cheers to you! Kick your feet up, relax and have a happy… See you Monday !
