Repurposed …Floral Friday

Have you ever looked at a food container and thought to yourself, “That would make a nice plant holder”?  The concept of reusing and recycling old wares is an old one. People have used old water pitchers and decrepit tea pots as clever planters quite artfully.

I took three random kitchen wares to recycle as succulent planters this week.  Three random books were then used as display props for the photos. The combinations make interesting still-life compositions.


One of Tolstoy’s classics supports a small old porcelain glazed steel refrigerator pan. The two pink plants seem right at home in this atmosphere.


The vintage Hull cereal bowl holds a ball cactus. The plant reminded me of a world globe, so why not perch it on top of a world atlas?


A cheery turquoise Tupperware cream pitcher is just the thing for a small cactus and floral elements. An anthology of stories from The Sun magazine is appropriate for this composition.
