Veggie Garden Flower Pot Wreath

Hey you all! What a day yesterday was...
Storms most of the day. Hail, (marble to ping pong size), lightening and anywhere from 5-9 inches of rain in about a 3 hour period. All the blooms on my plants were ripped off, and my hydrangeas that I have marveled over and pampered are in a heap on the ground. I'm just hoping they will survive somewhat intact. Our yard looks like a shredder has been through the trees with leaves covering everything. The pool wasn't flooded with mud, but it is filled with tons of oak leaves, sticks and small branches. Thank the Good Lord, no tornadoes. I'm hoping that today we can get out and clean up the mess.

Another kind of bad news is that a lightening strike took out the modem for my big computer that is my workhorse. So it will be a few days of pinch hitting here on my laptop that I keep in the kitchen. It's not set up with any of my photo storage, links, or my email. I'll be blogging with one arm tied behind my back. Hope you all will understand if things are sparse around here. I'm just glad I can post at all.

I did have these photos in draft for a blog post, so I'm sharing them with you today. In last week's post of the Vintage Wheelbarrow Tablescape  I used some vintage French seed packet labels for tags that could be used for guest seating place cards, and then some cute little flowerpot napkin rings. I've been wanting to do a flower pot wreath since last year when they went wild over on Pinterest. I know several of you gals have done them recently, so hope you don't mind if I'm a copy cat.

I just used gardener's twine to attach the flower pots and then filled them with moss. The base is an old grape vine wreath I'd had out in the garage for a few years. I thought about putting faux daisies and other flowers in the pots, but in the end with the veggie tags it was much too "busy".

Sorry these photos are a little blurry. I was using my big lens and didn't realize they were fuzzy until after I'd already hung the wreath up, and then by that time I had put away the step ladder and cleaned up my mess.

Here are the vintage French seed packet labels attached to the tags, 
from the tablescape post.

and then one of my whitewashed flower pots that was holding silverware.

Here's the wreath hanging above the sideboard;
I'll show you the rest of the "recycled veggie wheelbarrow" 
that's now on the sideboard, soon...

I've looked through Pinterest, and love all the different flower pot wreaths, but this was the only one I'd seen done in whitewashed pots. And you know me, I love me some whitewashed, chippy anything.

Hope you have a wonderful Sunday, 
and that you're weather is better than mine.
