Thrift Store Garden

Almost all decorations on the porch and in the garden have come from some form of thrifting: garage sales, thrift stores, estate sales, etc.
I found this great little plant stand at a garage sale a few weeks ago for $2.
Little iron cat sits in between herb plants, also garage sale find.

Cute little owl is a salt shaker without a mate - garage sale for $0.10.

Elephant watering can - found last year while thrifting.

This adorable owl planter was only $1, found him at a garage sale this past weekend. He is painted and winking on one side.
Plain on the other side.

Found this great little California Pottery planter from the 70's at an estate sale.

Green man planter, an older thrifted find.

And a lion planter, also a find from last summer.
