RE-PURPOSED for the Garden.

Posted by on May 19, 2012 | 0 comments

Ahh, The May long weekend….for some it means a great reason to throw a party, do some camping, or just relax ..and for others it means time to get a kick start on a little gardening and sprucing up outdoor spaces.
.
Lately we’ve been falling in love with the use of untraditional plant pots, wicker baskets, boxes and potting tables to help spice up this year’s garden decor. This summer we are all about re-using and re-purposing items to create pretty and unique garden and patio accents, vases and floral displays. Rules are meant to be broken and interesting uses of old things, make for great conversation.
Here are some of our recent favourite inpiring photos and DIY ideas borrowed from fellow bloggers.
