You might remember I enjoy growing and decorating gourds. (Please feel free to take a peek at them on my CRAFTS Page!) This little project was completely serendipitous. Don't you love happy surprises?
Our new puppy somehow got one of my smaller gourds and chewed off the top! Can you see all the punctures from her puppy needle teeth? I do like the way it angles though and how much more rustic it looks with a jagged top. Usually when I create an opening, it's cut carefully then sanded smooth.
Hmmm... Thanks, Sadi! ;-)
I just removed what seeds were left from the chew-fest and added a bit of potting soil.
Next, one of my house plants received a hair cut. The snips were tucked into my 'new' flower pot and watered thoroughly.
For now the fun little plant container is in the greenhouse. Once we have consistent warm night temperatures, though, I think it will be the centerpiece of our table on the back porch.
What surprise projects are happening around your house?
