Cute planters. I love how unique each one is. For me, I like to collect old tea cups and saucers. We have several antique stores, thrift shops and a big antique mall nearby that I visit to see what's "new."

Hi Deb!
Your planters are delightful. Thank you for sharing them with us and telling us a little about them. Your green McCoy planter is quite beautiful in a simple way and I bet it looks lovely on your windowsill. Isn't it funny how some thing can 'trigger' a childhood memory?! Have a good day!


Hi Deb!
I had come over for a "visit" yesterday and as always, you had so many interesting posts! :) I like your planters!! I too enjoy having a plant on the kitchen windowsill. At the moment, I have an Aloe Vera plant. I haven't had an opportunity to look for antiques, but my Mother-in-law, gave us some beautiful things when she broke up her home. We were quite blessed. One of the special pieces was a clock. It gets wound with a key and has a lovely chime. When we were looking at photos from my husband's Great-Grandmother, that lovely clock was on her mantle! Due to it's age, it is needing repair, but it holds a special place in our thoughts.


Thanks for sharing this post was like a mini stroll in an antique store. I cannot remember the first time I went antique shopping, I grew up going. Now my girls and I go antiquing. My grandmother and mother both have many pieces of McCoy. And my mother collects Shawnee, Chinese figures. How exciting to have these new planters, I hope you enjoy them.

Hey, I too really like favorite piece is a cute little green pot that has a chipped area around the top but that does not keep me from using it. I have a small red ornamental pepper in it right now...

I love McCoy and Shawnee pottery and have a little collection of my own. I try to limit myself to yellow pieces and that turtle would be one I'd love to have too -- great present! Thanks for sharing -

I came here last night, but something prevented me from leaving a comment here. Maybe I left one on a different post of yours. I think I am the queen of scatterbrains.

I like your pottery. I have a number of pieces, but not much McCoy. I have a flower frog collection, and some of those are pottery. I have a couple Roseville pieces. The only way I was able to afford them was because they had chips or cracks.

You asked me about joe pye weed. Mine is 'Gateway'. It doesn't get quite as tall as the wild kind. It's a perennial. I don't know if one can collect seeds to plant. They don't seem to self sow. I sure am enjoying having the plant in the front where I can see it when I look out the door. The insects sure like it, too.
