flower pots


While out with Mary Kate today, 
she spotted the sweetest set of flower pots. 

She thought maybe I'd like one...
Oh, how little she knows.  
I'm teaching her, little by little.

If I didn't pick up all three, right then and there...
 I'd never lay eyes on them again. 
So sayeth the law of 'HomeGoods'.  


When stacked, their combined weight is more than I can lift. 
Not to be deterred, I carefully put them in the cart one by one.


Do they remind you of anything?


What is it about polka dots?


The fact that they're sweetly floral and polka dotted pleases me enormously.
I'm eager to start planting. But, I'll bide my time till the danger of frost is past.

Sweet April showers
do spring May flowers.

Have you entered the 'bring the spring' give-away yet?
There's still time...

Oh my gosh - those are the most cheerful flowerpots I have ever seen! They remind me so much of Cath Kidston's designs, which I love! I'd have probably come home with all three, too!

Your pots are so sweet and how pretty they will be with flowers in them also. Are they painted that way or do they have fabric on them I wonder. Great find.
