Strange Finds

Strange Finds To Recycle for Flower Containers

Now don’t laugh, but last year the neighbor lady asked if I knew what this “certain” red pot that I had sitting on my deck was. I said nope, I got it free at a yard sale and it was perfect for what I needed to plant. Small pot, perfect for a little arrangement….anyone? Give up? It is an old enamel pee pot – strange finds.
