Have you noticed spring weather is a super hot topic already? So why not prepare early and look for some fabulous junk for your garden? Here are a few ideas I’d LOVE to do myself…


French Country Cottage – Old bicycle flower planter

Who doesn’t love the framework from an old bike? Well, this one just got better with toppled over lilacs. Gorgeous! I love these kinds of ‘planters’ because it’s an easy move when you need to mow the lawn. Easy is good.


Chipping with Charm – tool box flower planters

Laurel stacks some tool boxes filled with annuals to brighten up a little spot in the yard. I think this idea is darling.


Snowflakes and Dragonflies – chicken feed flower planter

A sweet old rusty chicken feeder has never looked so good, filled to the brim with violas. So pretty!


Eclectically Vintage – Umbrella flower wreath

Kelly’s fresh take on a front door wreath chimes in well with April showers. The umbrella containing water is genius!

Old kettle herb garden – Funky Junk Interiors

This collection of quirky old kettles that have seen better days are prettied right up again sprouting fragrant herbs. I really enjoyed moving this little group around to different locations just for fun.

  1. Oh, how I wish Spring would get here soon….it’s gonna be a miserable blustery weekend here! I am curious how I can find out what your theme is going to be each week. It just always says “to be announced” so I haven’t known for a while. Thanks.

    I appreciate you allowing me to share my post on my latest collection….like I need anymore!


  2. I am in NEED of Spring! We have had a taste of it here in TN. . . just a couple of warmer days here and there. Just enough to make me despise the winter weather all the more! I can’t wait to start getting in my garden and seeing some green! Thanks for hosting! Life to the full, Melissa @ DaisyMaeBelle

  3. What a nice surprise to come by to link up and see my vintage bicycle!! Thank you so much for the feature Donna! I actually pulled that bike out to take a few photos of it today too 😉 Thanks for hosting~ hope you have a fantastic weekend!! xoxo (typos make me crazy-posting again) 🙂

  4. I’m sure missing the gardening space I had in my previous home :/ Oh well, someday, right? In the meantime I never get tired of seeing all the cool gardening stuff everyone else is up to! I just linked up my cloche in home decor. Thanks for hosting, Donna! Have a good weekend.


  5. Thanks for featuring my tool bin planters Donna!! My husband actually bought those to use in his garage..imagine that?? I think they are “living” a much better life all pretty on my porch 🙂 LOVE the theme…can’t wait to peek around for some Spring inspiration!! Laurel
