I attended a very special, by invitation only, sale yesterday.  A very talented lady who repurposes furniture is moving, fast, and had a garage full of furniture and accessories she needed to get rid of.  She advertised that every item would be sold for exactly what she paid for it!

One of my purchases was this gorgeous white wicker plant stand.

I was compelled to purchase one of these equally gorgeous hydrangeas when I saw them for sale at Home Depot.

I placed a small garden statue on the little shelf below.

I put the plant stand in my entrance to bring some much needed "Spring" to this tiny foyer.

 The second plant stand was purchased with the intent of going outdoors.

Actually, I'm not even sure it is a plant stand.  It has 3 holes in the bottom tier.  (Cats are allowed but must enter at their own risk as there are 3 dogs in residence)! 

Both the seller and I have 'assummed' that's what this 3-tiered, half round table was intended for and after much pondering over this piece, I decided to 'bring it in'.

I used clay pots with ivy in them to fill the 3 holes.

Also a couple of sweet birds because what's a garden without our feathered friends (even the indoor kind)?
Love the details ... brass feet and wheels.

Intricate turned wood.
A vintage inspired garden journal sits atop the second tier ...
Along with a wire bird cage, complete with nest and bluebird.

And a small white urn.
The top tier holds a faux lavender topiary in a clay pot.

Although there isn't much happening yet outside, my indoor garden is looking
lovely, thanks to the addition of my new plant stands!

I'm joining the party at French Country Cottage! It's Feathered Nest Friday No. 30!
Come and join the fun!


  1. A perfect pair, I love both wicker and aqua. The hydrangea is very pretty, too.

  2. Yes your indoor garden is looking beautiful, my African violets are blooming! oxox, Diane

  3. Hi Lisa, I love both of your new plant stands! Especially love the aqua one, very French! Have a great week, kathee

  4. Hello, Happy Pink Saturday! Love your pink post this week. Very pretty plant stands! Thank you so much for stopping by and leaving a sweet comment.
    Bless you, Shirl

  5. Hi Lisa~ I am so happy to see you are joining in the party! I love your plant stands!! I actually have one very similar to your aqua one... unfortunately the weather was not kind to it this year and it was ruined. But I saved the parts and am thinking of rebuilding it. Seeing yours looking so pretty- it is definitely on the list of projects!! Thanks ahead of time for coming by and sharing at FNF! :) Hope all is well with you!

  6. Hi Lisa! Love both of your new treasures! How I wish I could attend a sale like that, you luck one! I love anything white and wicker... but that tiered aqua/turquoise plant stand is absolutely fabulous!!! It is so unusual and I love the color. Since the weather there doesn't seem to be saying "spring" yet... it's nice you could bring some inside!


  7. Greetings, nice to meet you! And how beautiful! I love anything wicker, and I love anything aqua/turquoise/robin's egg blue, so I love both of your new items! I also love those hydrangeas, my favorite flower. Wow, I "love" everything you have -- I should move in! LOL! ;)

  8. wow everything goes so beautifully together, great finds!

  9. What a treat Lisa! I just love the blue stand with the little clay pots tucked in, although I would have never guessed that's what the holes were for!

  10. I love the second "plant stand" but it might be the color that draws me to it... And I saw hydrangeas at home depot too, but couldn't bring myself to buy them knowing we'll be moving in 2 months.

  11. Both of these are real finds; Vintage wicker has become so hard to find. I wonder if your little tiered table was meant for African Violets...the way you have used it is very pretty. It is such a great color. Have a happy day!

  12. Lisa,
    O My!! I am totally in love with your great buys!! The plant stand with the hydrangeas just sings Spring!! And I so love wicker!!
    But the sweet half moon stand ( or whatever you want to call it) is just the cutest thing!! Loving the color of it too! And how neat is it that those posts fit in those little holes. You have accessorized everything beautifully and you home is really ready for Spring now. The inside is but i am assuming that the outside may have a few little signs of Spring?
    It is in the high 60's here today but I worked last night and have to work tonight so I will be missing most of it!

  13. Hi Lisa,
    Such pretty plant stands! The clay pots look like they were made for the table. Does it look like someone cut this table in half? It looks great against a wall. Love that shabby white bird cage!
    Have a great Sunday!

  14. Hi Lisa, oh I love your indoor garden! so pretty and fresh, always nice to get something to freshen up our spaces!
    thank you for stopping by and saying hi, I always look forward to your nice comments~ have a great week!


  15. I love wicker but it always gets too dried out in Phoenix.

  16. Oh Lisa, everything looks gorgeous and spring-like! You really scored on those plant stands and the hydrangea is so pretty. I love that white cabinet and wall mirror nearby, too!
    Have a great week,

  17. I am in love with the romance and chic style of your home. Both plant stands are just that. The decor you used for both are perfect.

    Have a great day.....

  18. Lisa! Great plant stand and the blue table. So cute! You house looks lovley! Judy

  19. Lisa,
    That concert must have been so great!! Joe would have thought he died and went to heaven!! He is such a Led Zeppelin fan!
    I really like a good majority of the current top 40 music that is out there today. There was a period of time where I really didn't but then the tide turned...LOL!!
    ROCK ON!!

  20. I would say you got it spot on with your 3-tiered plant stand idea. Love that color!

  21. Hi Lisa,
    Your finds are wonderful; love the tiered plant stand! I like the colour of it too. Such a pretty hydrangea! Love your shabby mirror! Thanks for stopping by for tea today. Hope you have a wonderful week.
