Leaking water from containers can be hard on your deck. Prevent water damage by placing decorative "feet" or stones under your containers to allow air flow.

I've seen those pottery 'feet' before, but not like that one--it's so cute! Wherever did you find those?

Those little things are the most useful "feet".
I am a strong believer in the simple fact is that what matters in this life is how we treat others. I think that's what living is all about. Not what I've done in my life but how I've treated others.

Sorry, but those aren't my "feet". Someone else submitted the photo. But they sure are cute!

It was me with the feet. I got them at Kinsman.

They are a bit expensive but the goods are really nice.
