mini green flower pot

When you see something like this:

Don’t pass it up!

I got this cute little worn out flower pot at G-Will for ninety-nine cents.

One coat of Apple Green spray paint and a dollar store flower later…


So easy. Instant cuteness. And it only took me like 3 minutes to paint it.


I didn’t even prime it first. I just washed it and then spray painted it.


For those of you who don’t live in California, don’t be jealous that it says “Trader Joe’s” on the bottom.


For Mother’s Day my children brought me home this purple flower from the 99 Cent Store.


I love these colors together.


The best thing about this is that I didn’t even hassle with planting my flower in the new pot.


I just stuck it in there. It fits perfectly. So, two bucks later, I’ve got a cute little potted flower. And now I can reuse my planter over and over again.


We are CLOSING ON OUR HOUSE at the end of July! Thank you for being patient with me while I’ve been slacking on my blog. It’s been hard to find time to blog while I crash at friends houses.
