Like the first time a little kid sees their teacher at the supermarket – seeing things in a different light can be mind blowing!
Everything isn’t always as it seems ( she eats too? with who? where? ). Looking at things differently challenges our notions and broadens our minds.
Deep thoughts for a post on ‘succulents in a sifter’!
While I don’t put this project in the “my teacher is coming down the supermarket aisle” mind blowing category, I do think even the simplest re-purpose challenges our minds & creativity. I believe those to be the real reasons we all enjoy a re-purpose so much.
Take something, turn it on its head & make something else. Challenging, creative & really fun.
So that is what I did with this vintage sifter I picked up at a yard sale.
It was sitting in the cabinet next to the other sifter I use. I don’t need two sifters, but I do need more charming places to plant succulents.
You know I have a bit of an obsession with these hardy little gems.
The sifter is the perfect container. A good size, with superior drainage.
I added a layer of pebbles for good measure, sandy soil, the plants & some moss.
Love my new succulent planter and found a perfect spot for it.
Go through your cabinets I bet you have an extra sifter too!
What have you looked at in a different light & re-purposed?
