Found In My Totes …Floral Friday

I’m in an ongoing process of culling my pottery collection. This week, I found some unusual pieces to work with and share with you. Two of them will go away and two of them will stay.

This whimsical footed metal pot didn’t make the keeper category, but I wanted to use it one last time. The silly container is perfect to use for a cluster of some of my favorite fill-flowers.

I don’t think a fish monger will accept the trout planter on consignment but it will go to my friend Jonathan because he laughs when he sees it.

The vintage McCoy finger vase is definitely a keeper. I’d lost track of it and even forgot I still owned the piece. Five bright Gerbera daisies are individually showcased today.

The other one to save is a late 1950s or early 1960s boat planter by California Pottery. It contains a Zen-inspired array of bamboo.

The Blue Jay of Happiness quotes organizing consultant, Marie Kondo. “It’s human nature to take the easy route and leap at storage methods that promise quick and convenient ways to remove visible clutter. Putting things away creates the illusion that the clutter problem has been solved. But sooner or later, all the storage units are full, and the room once again overflows with things.”
