Tealight Holders As Pots For Plants

I had a super busy weekend as the spring cleaning in my home is in full spring! There were of course the usual errands. I had to also work on a book report for my son's school project.........so there was very little down time. I did manage to sneak a few moments of solitude which was perfect. I moved the couch away from the window to let some more light in. I now have a wooden bench placed there instead. I picked up a very interesting coffee table book on Antiques from the local library sale for a dollar. The pages are filled with stunning images and in depth information of the types of antiques that are found in different parts of the world. Fascinating to say the least!!

Did you notice the little plant by the window ? I bought a few of them from the nursery. I did not like the container they came in so I transported it into this glass container. This is really a large tea light holder but I thought it would make a pretty pot for my plant :) What do you think?? I re-plotted a few more plants the same way. I shall share the pictures soon.

Here's wishing you a wonderful new week ahead!

An update : Here is a picture of the houseplants re-potted into my old but large tea light holders. I remembered to take some pictures this morning :)
