I am very patiently waiting for spring. It starts ever so slowly here in Minnesota. I see signs of it though. It starts with some crocuses and scilla.
But while I wait for it, I thought I would put together a little miniature garden to enjoy for now.
I bought this ironstone tureen at Junk Bonanza. I just loved how crackled it was. It didn’t have its lid any longer, and I just thought it would be fun to use as a little planter.
It has a great mark on the bottom. Apparently this is a “classic shape”.
Anyway, I popped in to my local Bachman’s store and came away with some miniature plants and a bag of pebbles.
I put some pebbles at the bottom of my tureen, since there won’t be any proper drainage with this planter.
Then I just tucked in my little plants and added some tiny little white pots that I found at a garage sale last summer. I had added my house numbers to them and they usually reside in my fairy garden outside.
For now I am going to put him in the window at the bottom of the stairs. Hopefully I will remember to keep him watered. Maybe I’ll reconsider and bring him to the office to remind me of gardening while I am crunching numbers at the day job.
