Garden Planter Storage

I love containers of almost any kind. Buckets, milk crates, woven baskets….
Now that Spring is on it’s way the stores are filled with garden planters.

This one is perfect for my magazine collection.
It was $16.99 at TJ Max.
It fits perfectly here by my favorite chair but would be great at the side of a sofa, too.
I like to use things in unusual ways. I could put logs in this planter for Winter.
We had a fun weekend. Look at the view from our room where we stayed.
Westbrook, Connecticut
We just had to catch up with a few friends we left last Summer when we moved away. We laughed just like old times.
Thank you and I LOVE you all!!!

I love things like that too. I found a couple of really cool, pale blue, aged looking, wooden plant boxes at the end of the summer this past year at Lowes. Great thing is that they were on clearance.
