I had been searching through one of the “tote” storage containers in the basement for a specific car-shaped planter to use as one of this week’s Floral Friday projects. During the process, I not only found the car, but two other suitable items.
The vintage teevee lamp base was packed near the top of the contents in the “tote”. I honestly don’t remember purchasing it, but here it is, in pristine condition, minus the electrical socket. The integrated vase is just the right size and shape for a small handful of faux flowers.
The car, that was the focus of the search, was manufactured for Teleflora and endorsed by the Chevrolet Division of General Motors. An array of plastic tulips works well inside the collectible convertible.
The USA Pottery tiger planter was intended to be used for ferns. However, I decided to use a few simple yellow flowers instead. I prefer this balance between tiger and flowers.
The Blue Jay of Happiness quotes science writer Stephen Jay Gould. “Nothing is more dangerous than a dogmatic world-view–nothing more constraining, more blinding to innovation, more destructive of openness to novelty.”
