Upcycled Vintage Items Into Planters

The Camellia Garden Club, Tiffany’s a member, had their September program at the shop last Friday where upcycled vintage items were turned into planters. It was a chore to have everything ready, but a deadline was something I needed or I’d still be puttering around trying to get things ready for fall and Halloween. Tiffany came a few days and lent her magical decorating hand to polish things off and Melanie helped when she could. May I say that I have The Bestest Friends? They have lives and jobs, Melanie’s full time, Tiff’s part time, and still found time to help me out. They will be blessed. Last weekend the three of us spent time at the lake, they (them?) creating garden junk, me (I?) making tags. (I realized in this big re-do that millions of things weren’t priced. I hate that, don’t you? No wonder people were always coming up to me asking how much things were. I’ve made a boat load of tags and still have that many more things unpriced!)

I wanted to share with you pictures of the garden junk projects and the club ladies, so here they are.

I’m saving the Halloween decorations for a later time. We’re planning a Halloween girls night out at the shop, dates to be announced.

  1. This looks like such a wonderful time and everything looks so lovely in the vintage settings and planters.

    The girls night out Halloween party sounds like lots of fun!

    thanks for stopping by my blog and leaving such a nice comment. I’m glad that you did because now I know about you and your blog. I’ll be back often.


  2. Love all the creative ways you all used lamp parts and funnels – so many great projects, so little time!!!
