I am a sucker for corner store flowers. Especially the potted bulbs. Not so fond of the plastic pots and coloured paper wraps they come in. I always yank them out and re-pot them in something a little prettier. This was my Sweet Mama's mixing bowl from when I was a kid. I remember her making steamed puddings in this. The bottom is a bit worse for wear due to her old hand cranked mixer, but the glaze on the outside is still lovely and it's simple and fresh, so I use it for planting.
I treated myself a little pot of daffs and one of crocus for $2.99 each. Once they are spent, I shall replant them in the garden and the'll re-gift me next year. I decided they look prettiest on my old dresser along with my stag horn-a gift from my sister who found it while walking. I had hidden away from the banana eating Foster Dog (you can read about his antics HERE and HERE) lest he think he had a new 4 point bone. Foster Boy has however passed muster and I am happy to say his "trial" is over and he is now officially adopted into a family who adores him with 4 cats. I anxiously await for "the Call" regarding Foster Dog 2. Perhaps this weekend. I am hosting a dinner party Saturday night so that may prove interesting. Enjoy your weekend.
