Teeny Tiny Secondhand Treasures: A Pair of Toadstool Planters

Vintage ceramic toadstool planters. Thrifted for $1.50 each. 

It's here! It's finally here! It's time to welcome flea markets and carnivals, garage sales, lemonade stands and the sweet, sweet smell of freshly tended gardens. Happy Spring, everyone! 

To properly introduce the first full day of spring, I thought what better than a post about my latest pair of Teeny Tiny Secondhand Treasures. I found this set of vintage toadstool planters for $3.00 and I'm absolutely smitten with with them. 

The green hues and faded golden spots on the toadstool cap, the detailed beige toadstool stump. And of course, the sweetest little details of all...

Awwww. Little kids with flowers. 

Aren't these pudgy little kids just the cutest? I sure think so. Now I just need to stop in Home Depot for some clay pebbles to prevent my miniature plants from getting root rot. That's the only drawback of vintage planters: no drainage. But... hey! We're talking about a pair of toadstools with pudgy little kids under them. Adorable! 

I'm linking up with Sir Thrift-A-Lot. Go check it out!

Hi Jackie, Happy Spring. My small thrifts are letter holders, no tiny but not big.

Adorable!

My vegetable/fruit garden didn't fare to well last year. I think I got 3 strawberries out of a full garden, so it's a flower garden this year. I've been on the lookout in the thrifts for adorable, cool planters. Haven't found any yet. Hopefully soon!

No finds to link up with - sorry!

No worries, Sir. You're always welcome to link-up when you've had a bountiful thrift.


And thank you, Tilda for stopping by.
