I got a magazine that shows how to use antique picture frames as hanging containers for succulents, etc. Have any of you tried this? It looks amazing.

Lynn - Here are the photos. They appear in the Early Spring 2012 issue of Country Gardens Magazine. Sorry some of them are blurry. Thanks - Clint

There sure isn't. Maybe Chris will find this thread. She has some time on her hands for awhile. I could see her doing this project. Green Grin!

Yup, found it and am drooling all over my keyboard. But a couple of problems with all this time on my hands - I can't bend over to get to my plants (for 6 months!!!) and most of them are still under snow! I'll just have to figure something out - where there's a will, there's a way!

Chris, how about me sending you a box of plants, that way your won't have to bend down. Just set the box on a table.
I promise not to send them covered in snow. Green Grin!

Lynn, that's such a nice offer, but I'd feel guilty using your plants with so many of my own. *Blush*
