Greetings Friends, I'm so glad you are here! Are you ready for The Fourth? I bet you are ready for a nice long holiday weekend! Friday's Find offered some colorful ideas for decorating your garden with festive thrifted treasures. Today I am continuing the spirit with these cheery patriotic planters for your porch, patio or even indoors...
Remember my thrift store tablecloth? It's lovely on my outdoor table in the gazebo but my thrifted milk glass arrangements have since been moved inside to the breakfast table. Milk glass is so versatile--I just love it!
I found this star stamped planter at a yard sale for .75! Isn't she perfect for my red petunias? Remember, shopping off season is the best way to find great bargains and that applies to thrifting and yard sales as well. I bought this baby during the winter months. Now it brightens my fence and makes me smile when I look through my back door window!
Repurposing is the epitome of thriftiness. Being the thrifty girl that I am, I am constantly recreating with otherwise cast offs like this chair. The worn out seat made it the perfect candidate for a planter. It just wanted to be this happy blue :) The thrifted tray only needed a few coats of chalkboard paint to serve as a garden sign. Little red birdie told me he and the welcome sign came from a yard sale!
I picked up several of these blue wire baskets from my favorite thrift store. Wrapping my vinca in red jute ribbon and tucking them inside made a nice deer proof arrangement for the bistro table near my back door. The finishing touch was my .25 pewter star!
My new blogging friend Carol reminded me with a helpful comment that our patriotic pretties are timely through Labor Day. If you haven't checked out her inspiring blog, you are missing out. I have to warn you though, you may be hit with a sudden urge to be at the beach! Do you enjoy adding stars and stripes to your outdoor space? Please share--I would love to hear from you!
