New Life for Old Shoes

It's always rewarding to me to see old things take on a new life.  These worn  work shoes show signs that they spent my hours working in the garden before they became planters for hens and chickens.
I found these little boy's cowboy boots at a flea market and filled them with chickens too.  They haven't done as well because they dry out so quickly but they're still so darn cute!

In just a few weeks it will be time to plant spring bulbs.  I can't wait to plant those big yellow daffodils.  I might start looking for bulbs this weekend!


  1. That is so cute! Hens and chickens are the only plants that I can seem to grow. I love them! They are so easy. Just plant them and leave them be.

    Have a Great Weekend!
