I find myself looking everywhere, and at everything wondering...hmm, maybe I could plant semps in that?
I found some actual flower pots at the dollar store, but I also found a few other containers that will work not only for semps, but my other plants too!
Popcorn bowl $1.

The semp area is usually not this messy. We had rain last night and it splashed soil all over the siding and made a bit of a mess on the risers. Guess I should have swept before taking photos. *Blush* LOL

When you look around at some of the photographs posted by the rest of us, you might not feel that way, Terri. Ask me how I know... Whistling Whistling Whistling Big Grin

Whew, glad I'm not the only one! At least my semps don't sit in mess for very long, the glass studio is another story. Rolling my eyes.

DEFINITELY not the only one. Hilarious! Hilarious!

Glass studio? Do you make artwork for outside, maybe? We have a forum for that...and we lov.v.e pictures. Smiling Even if for indoor display, I, for one, love glass art and would greatly enjoy seeing photographs.

Hurray! Wow, Terri what a haul for almost nothing. I love that. Hurray!
I really like the shape of the popcorn bowls, they do a great job of setting of the semps.
I'm with the others here, you can never post to many new ideas for containers. Smiling

I haven't made any glass for outside...yet. Mostly wall art for the home and decorative bowls.
