PLANTING STUFF UP!!

Spring is my favorite time of the year!!! I have been busy planting annuals this weekend and thought I would show you a project from a couple of years ago.  This old wagon was a freebie at a yard sale and made the perfect planter.  I drilled holes in the bottom for drainage, lined it with screen and then filled it with one of my favorite anuuals--bacopa.
I spend the entire year scouring flea markets, garage sales and thrift stores for fun containers that can be repurposed as plant containers.

Happy day!

One question...how do you get the letters on the silver platters or for the silver platter clock is that a transfer of the eiffel tower??? Can you give me a lil more detail on these two projects? I have so many silver platter I'm ready to do some of these beautiful projects!!! I'm loving your blog, can't get enough of it :)

Hi Janis, your wagon looks so cute! I have my original Radio Flyer wagon from when I was a little girl (that would be over fifty years ago!)... I just can't bring myself to plant in it, but I DO set pots of plants in it... I also love Bacopa, one of my favorites! xoxo Julie Marie

OH I have to agree with everyone, love it too! That wagon is just great and you are so clever to turn it into a planter!

Love your little red wagon. I've planted different things in a wheel barrel and can't seem to get them to take off. I thought maybe it was too much iron in the soil from the metal but your flowers look great! I should try annuals.

Hello Again, dear friend.
We found an old red wagon in our dumpster and rescued it. It is missing a wheel. My question is - should I replace the wheel and should I paint the whole thing white before I turn it into a little garden for succulents.
Thanks for any ideas.
