Flower Basket

Good Morning!

I have a quick and easy garden project to share today.  Last week I picked up a basket from the thrift store for a dollar.  I liked it's shape and thought it would be prefect for flowers.

After a quick shot of spray paint and a little sanding to make it look more aged, I place a moss hanging basket insert inside the basket and then simply planted my flowers.

I love how it turned out and can't wait for the flowers to fill in a little more.  Plus I love how easy it's been to move it around the garden.

Hope you have a great day,


  1. brilliant idea! I have a similar basket, I just might copy you.
    Your yard is beautiful and giving me some good ideas. Our front yard is OK but our backyard is horrible and I hope we can do something to improve it soon. Love your border stones you just put in.

  2. What a cute idea! I have several cheapie baskets laying around that I can't seem to part with; this is very cute!

    Have a great week!

  3. Loved the way you aged that sweet basket, Robin! So pretty with the flowers in it! :)

  5. What a cute idea, Robin! I love how it looks painted, and it is really charming with the petunias in the garden!


I love hearing from you. Thanks for stopping by!
