Sometimes it's the little things.....

Sometimes a very small change, for a very little amount of money, can make me so happy.



I had this fake plant, but I never liked how orange the pot was.
I meant to paint it, but never got around to it.



Then I found this little piece of pottery at the thrift store.
I really liked the texture. It reminded me of faux bois.
I didn't know what I was going to do with it, but it was cheap so I brought it home.



Then one day it occurred to me....why not put the fake plant into the thrift store pot?
So I put some floral foam into the pottery, pulled the plant out of the old pot and stuck it in the new pot.
Easy, peasy! :)



I placed a bit of Spanish moss on top of the floral foam to cover any gaps.


I really love the way it looks now!

  4. This is such a cute pot and your plant looks real! Are they teardrops? I had a real once and killed it. I am NOT good with plants at all! ;-D

  18. Your vignette is lovely. I have several of those little plants and think they add a look of softness to an area just the way it looks in your vignette. I would like to invite you to show this or anything pertaining to the home at my "Your Cozy Home Party". now through Thurs. at 10 pm. I have some of my faux plants in pretty containers similar to yours but sometimes I like the clay pot look. I think they are cute either way.------- Shannon

  23. I have this same little plant , Lisa. I usually stick it in a basket or crock because I don't care for the color of the pot either. I love the pot you used ~ very charming!
