Too many houseplants? This is a great way to utilize something old and make it totally useful again.

Lee Anne, what an amazing and useful idea. That would work perfectly in my tiny sun room. That would mean I could have more plants in the house over the winter. Hurray!
Thank you for such a great tip. Group hug

I agree Such a wonderful idea. I love it when people find unusual ways to recycle. I think the term now is "repurpose."
