I know it was all the rage a couple of years ago, but this one is special because a friend of mine found it up in the mountains, near an abandoned mine - so there's a sense of history to it!!
I'm posting several view...since I like the plants in it Smiling

Looks like something that might be found around Carbonado, up in the sticks. I used to visit the area a lot. Love the handle and everything else about it. Good job Greg!

Well, that is really a nice pot full of semps.

At least you cannot say you don't have a pot to ........ plant in. (excuse me I could not resist even if this if a bit vulgar) Hilarious! Hilarious!

Rolling on the floor laughing Rolling on the floor laughing What nice posts to come home too!!! Thumbs up Thumbs up You all crack me up!! Someone had planted in it before me, so I'm only hoping that she washed it first - eeewww hadn't even thought of it until now! Rolling on the floor laughing
Connie, it was somewhere up in the Cascades, but I'm sure one can find this sort of thing all over!! I don't think this pot is really that old either, probably from the 30's or 40's I'm guessing Sticking tongue out
Marilyn, yes one always needs a pot...to plant in! Hurray! I agree

If you promise not to tell I will tell you a secret. When I was a kid we had one of those babies under each bed. I am really old you know. You deserve a thumbs up for that planter for sure. Thumbs up

When we'd go cabin camping they would be available, for those who didn't want to go all the way to the outhouse. Rolling on the floor laughing
Of course, we "boys" didn't have to worry about such things! Rolling on the floor laughing
This planting did turn out well though!! And the plants keep growing so I'm happier and happier with it! Thumbs up

Greg, I hope you did not put holes in the bottom to drain. Those antique things should never be damaged just for plant drainage especially when you may need to use them again someday. *Blush*
