I started planting my tea pot and the other white wire thing. I was suppose to do this last year.

I have a solar light inside but you cannot see it but it looks really neat at night.

I am brain dead right now. I will take a pic of my other white wire thing that I cannot think of the name. It is getting to dark to take pic now.

Cute! I picked up a bunch of wire things at the Good Will store last year and hope by next spring I can cover at least one of them.

Thank you. I do not like cats but he is my love and he is more like a dog than a cat. When he wants to go outside he goes and get his chain. It is a Havana Brown. They are said to be the dog breed in cats. He was Photoboming every pic I took that day. Rolling on the floor laughing

Yes, that does sound like an awesome cat breed, and so beautiful.
We had Manx cats for years, they are also a very different breed, more dog like.

Wow, Suga your very first semps. That is so exciting. We can't wait to see photo when they arrive.
Goodwill, Salvation Army, Thrift Shops/Second had stores, Yard Sales, Estate Sales. All great sources of re-purposed containers. Hurray!
Love that basket Suga. I am not familiar with flex seal?

Flex seal is something that they advertise on TV that you spray to stop leaks like on gutters etc. they show a man in a boat where he put a screen in the bottom of a boat and sprayed flex seal on it and it didn't let any water in and he was floating away.... Well now it comes in clear and white and black and green. I'm not sure about any other colors. You can get it at Walmart. I am really excited to and I will be sure to post pictures when I get them planted and fixed just right.

I used the flex seal in a tree pot that I wanted to make a water fixture. I sealed the drainage holes and it held water all summer.

I picked up a can at Home Depot. I think it was 12.00.

Awesome! It's good stuff and now it comes in different colors! The basket I painted with the white flex seal. That way I figured it would last a little longer. Crossing Fingers!
