Seashells & Containers 

Standard

Sunday morning estate sales are the best. Some late morning casual browsing with no pressure from the early birds. Honestly I thought all the good stuff would be taken, but I got lucky and found some small items for $3. 

Can’t beat all the shells in this cute wicker container. Plus after making my hanging planters, I’ve been searching for a planter hanger bracket. The packaging is amazingly retro – I almost didn’t want to open it. 

My next project will be to fix the missing wooden veneer on the inlaid pearl box. Wish me luck!

Happy Hunting!

Hi Everyone,

I know it’s been a while since I introduced you to the odd shaped birdcage…but I finally completed the hanging planters! I just needed to borrow my dad’s dremel to break the spot welds holding the two wire tops together. I used one $2 coconut fiber liner cut in half and leftovers for the string. 

The one in front uses a leather boot shoe tie and the other is hemp that was wrapped around the candle from this post. The hooks at the bottom leave so many options for hanging – I could stack them or add other cute items like the teardrop air plant terrariums that are popping up everywhere. 

Next mission: find a nice spot for them to hang for the rest of the summer. 

Happy DIY-ing & Gardening!

The Candle & Fishbowl

The Candle & Fishbowl

With all the yard sales lately, I have acquired a bunch of random stuff like this candle & fishbowl.

They were both missing something, so I attempted to combine them. 

It’s not too bad – a bit earthy & funky, but perhaps I will come up with another combo when my air plants come in. It’s always fun to come up new combinations whether it’s rearranging the living room or something small like this quick project. 

Happy Thrifting & DIY-ing!
