Basic Planters …Floral Friday

On a whim, I decided to bring out three mid 20th century planters this week. The idea was to create a some pleasant, long lasting room accents to replace several that needed dismantling. I’d also have a little fun in the process.

The small satin-green planter pot was manufactured by Shawnee subsidiary Kenwood. A cluster of moss roses provide contrasting and complimentary colors. This will eventually grace a knick knack shelf.

It’s fun to assemble a container garden. The large, USA Pottery planter finished in sea-foam chartreuse glaze is the perfect vessel for a collection of succulent plants.

You might say that the small USA Pottery jardinière is now a micro container garden. A stem with fuzzy seed pods accents a pair of succulent plants. Simple plantings in small pots are my go-to activity if I feel fidgety.


The Blue Jay of Happiness quotes horticulturist, Luther Burbank. “Don’t wait for someone to bring you succulents. Plant your own and decorate your soul.”
