New Addition ~ Wire Planter

by Sherry
Hi everyone! 
I hope you are all doing well.
A couple of days before leaving for Florida I purchased this vintage wire
planter.  I have always loved these but I could never find one that was not too
expensive. I bought this one at an auction for $15.00!  
There wasn’t enough time for me to really style it before my trip but I
wanted to share it with you anyways.   

There are two identical mirrors hung above each other on the wall.  The
mirrors were a very bright gold color until I painted them gray with

Isn’t she a cutie?

The salt (sale) jar was purchased on a trip to France.


 Thanks for dropping by and for all the sweet comments you leave me.  I
so appreciate your friendship and your prayers for my dad.

Your wire tiered stand is very pretty! It reminds me of the ones in Victorian days that you'd place flowers on for your porch. I know you will have fun styling it many different ways in the years to come. Hope you're doing well with your dad.

Hi Sherry, love that planter. OH, love the jar from France, too. I didn't realize I hadn't added you back to my blogroll. I lost it when I moved to .net. Hope all is well.

That is a lovely planter. I saw one, but much smaller, at a local antiques shop for $50.

Michele September 23, 2012 - 9:31 pm

Love your plant stand. It looks like a great resource for future displays.
I always laugh when I encounter your blog because its name is pretty much the story of my life too. When I hear about people wanting a space "bare and not fussy" it makes me shake my head. I want colors and textures and plenty to look at!

The tiered planter is a terrific piece! You will have fun styling it when the time is right.

Hi, Sherry. Sorry to hear about your dad. I will be praying as well. I've been absent as well. I finally got to take my dream trip to Paris and it was wonderful. I see your salt keeper that you got in France and I have always loved tiered planers like the one you got.
