Welcome to Saturday Nite Special #136, the multi themed DIY link party!

* Theme of the week
Flowers are beautiful in their own right, however when paired up with creative containers, they make for amazing focal points.
As luck would have it, Folk magazine’s issue 6 will show what I did with flower arrangements. Here are a couple of them…
Beautiful freshly cut blooms look better tucked inside a vintage lemon puff biscuit tin, wouldn’t you agree?
The deep toned laundry line wheels plus a vintage sewing machine drawer set the stage perfectly to highlight some bright yellow flowers set into a glass jar.
(more of my ideas will be in FOLK)
How about the planted variety?
Fellow FOLK writer Michael at Inspired by Charm has you covered there!
A mounted old shelf becomes a vision of wonder with a collection of old funnels and lots and lots of gorgeous flowers in full bloom.
The junker in me gasped when I caught hold of the chicken feeder planter. Isn’t this the coolest idea?
Oh yes, and then there’s the vintage hanging scale planter…
Isn’t this stunning?
And don’t forget about the food mill planter. We called this an apple sauce maker when I was a kid.
Simply outstanding, wouldn’t you agree? Thanks Michael!
