Colander Planted with Succulents

My Garden Style

I would describe my decorating style, both inside and out, as “Flea Market Chic.” I love things with character, patina, and a story. I admire the cleverness of repurposed items, and especially enjoy having things with extra meaning because they were made by a friend or loved one. I didn’t plan it, but my front yard has a kitchen theme. There’s an old colander planted with succulents, an old teapot made into a bird house, old silverware made into wind chimes, and an oversized coffee cup and saucer made into a bird feeder that was a gift from my sister. I guess those things just “speak” to me.

This barn-style bird house is special because it’s made from debris that was picked up after the Joplin tornado. I bought it from the couple that made it when I happened upon their garage sale. I wish I knew their names so I could give them credit for it. It’s a treasure.
