I love the old truck planter !

In magazines I have seen old metal beds set in the yard & flowers planted ! THAT'S cute - I saw an old toilet as a planter too !! too funny !

I saw a combat boot used as a panter ! I LOVED that one !

I grew a cherry tomatoe once in a big Ketsup bottle - I just cut off the top down t the Heinz label -

I have seen vegitable plants grown in reused cans of the same vegitable ! Thats a sweet one !

An old wheel barrow makes a nice planter - you can wheel it wherever you want it !

An old high heel would make a cute planter too I think !

I found an old pipestand once & at a rummage sale I found some plastic test tubes that party drinks came in & painted some flowers on the top of the pipe stand & used the test tubes for plant starts !

If you want to make plant start to give to friends when they get a new apt- start them in nice little glass bottles with a ribbon wrapped around the neck so they can be hung in the window !

I actually have some plants in my kitchen in oven mitts. Way cute. I work with a company that sells a "no dirt" soil, so I can use anything for a planter because there is no mess. In the bathroom, I have a plant in a towel that is rolled up with a bow tied around it and the plant in the middle.

Love the idea about veggie cans. I'm going to try that right away.
