As I was finishing work on a new flower garden, I decided I needed a border. It couldn’t be just any border…it had to be an awesome border! Most items I use in my back yard are natural, like wood and rocks, so I wanted to stay within that theme.
I looked through some decorative plates, that will soon be donated to a thrift store, (thinking that they are made of clay and clay is natural), but they just didn’t quite seem to fit.
Then, I went to the garage. Voila!
In a previous post, Be On the Lookout for Free Stuff, I showed a photo of these Terra Cotta pot liners. I had just enough to make a border, plus they fit with my natural (clay) theme!
I don’t like to toot my own horn, but I think this looks adorable! I have my vintage Irises up front, bordered by the Terra Cotta liners. Both of them fit together well in my mind, because I remember both out on the farm when I was growing up. Plus, it’s fitting to have flower pot liners bordering a flower garden!
Now, I have a personalized border that means something to me. It makes me smile and reminds me of my mom and my childhood! So much better than anything I could have gotten in a store!
