Well, that is until I bought this poor, unsuspecting vinca vine. Joe was surprised at my purchase. "You are buying a plant?!?" I know. I know. It's not fair to the plant. I get that. But this will be different.
Okay, after a week, the plant is still alive. And I remembered to water it already this morning.
This is my plant now.
I Joe made a frame out of an old metal clothes hanger and I weaved the plant around it from both sides. Pretty simple. I think the hardest part will be keeping this sucker alive.
And this crafty idea came via Sarah. This is an old, silver pedestal tray that I picked up for free at our swap shop. I didn't really know what I was going to do with it. It hung around on my dining room table and held small things I needed to repair. I was getting sick of it and decided it was going to be donated to Purple Heart. Well, that was until I saw Sarah's post.
Now it's a lovely pale pink pedestal tray. I love the transformation. And it has nothing to do with the fact that everything looks better when paired with chocolate chip cookies.
Edited to add: I have seen silver trays in the dollar store. It would be great to use this idea for a bridal or baby shower!
