New pot for my plants

I’m not usually a shopper of finished products, but a few weekends ago I found myself down on Whidbey Island in Washington, and decided to take a stroll down a rather windy but quaint little street. On that street I happened upon a great antique store. Not one of those overpriced Vancouver stores filled with other people’s junk that they don’t want, but rather a great priced shop full of treasures.

My boyfriend picked up a great set of antique binoculars, and I grabbed an old glass soda pop bottle (that I plan on making into a lamp – but that’s another post) and the cooking pot you see above. It has a great hammered copper finish, and while it’s round bottom isn’t very stove friendly, it would have been great for a campfire. Instead, I brought it home and transplanted an aloe vera plant I had. It fits in nicely on my windowsill with a few other succulents in patina-ed pots I picked up at the flea market in the spring.
