Pot found curbside. The bottom was broken and couldnt seem to get it to stay glued on so I just left it off and put container in ground.
Black iron chairs were found curbside on different occasions.
The whole picture. Trellis is part of a daybed, bust in back and the column it is on all found at thrift store for a few dollars each.
Flower containers are a galvanized pot and old watering can found again curbside.

I am decorating my garden with curbside finds and thrift store bargains.

Thanks for sharing & happy spring!
