Having fresh florals and g r e e n e r y around seemed like a Good Thing To Do Now That It's 2015, and so last weekend I quadrupled our number of snake-plant-friends. They're inexpensive and low maintenance and they just look s o g o o d (apparently they're also great air purifiers but, you know, #visualpriorities).
I'm terrified to re-pot anything (my aforementioned thrill at a low maintenance plant is directly related to a black, black thumb) and so needed to cover up the plastic planters they came in, and once I honed in on that idea I realized I might want to start also thinking about using something other than a jar, at least every once in a while, for f l e u r s . Don't get me wrong, I LOVE a jar, but it just felt time to upgrade.
Last year I was thrift-hoarding vintage copper kitchen containers without an exact plan (but with every intention of finding SOME reason to stare at them), and I was glad to be able to pull them out for the new additions. Cheap-o and readily available secondhand, they're a perfect size to hide a planter, and a smaller version now serves as my go-to for big bunches of flowers or cut greenery. This is so simple that I almost feel like a cheat for making it a How Do You Do
, so lemme get lofty real quick and EXPERTLY ADVISE you to REPURPOSE VINTAGE KITCHEN CONTAINERS for ALL YR HOME DECOR NEEDS. There. Signing off.
