La petite...

I love small cute pots and fancy containers. I filled them with mini begonias, money plants, spider plants, different varieties of coleus and other house plants that Im not sure of their names as long as they look pretty and cute for indoor and outdoor decorations. Mostly for my own use, but I did give them to friends and family as a birthday or house warming party gift. And I even manage to sell two at a Flea Market a few months back!
Various types of small cute containers n pots,
look good on a coffee table in the garden,
in your living room or on your rack





















Dont have to buy those fancy pots and containers, you can always recycle your plastic bottles to make small pots with money plants or other creepers to hang in your bathroom, giving it a refreshing new look. I did that when I was working in a company once, my boss liked it so much he asked me to make a few more for his garden and bathroom!

They are beautiful, Puteri. Do show those that you made on your own. I would love to see them. Btw, did you manage to create a collage?

You have many cantik containers. I would like to collect some make it look more interesting like yours. At the moment, I am recycling the use of polystyrene containers and plastic pots.

I like miniatures too. You are so full of new ideas. Your creations are so sweet and practical.

Thanks One but at the moment Im into recycling perfume bottles cos their shapes n design are very unique. Now we sent all plastic bottles to the recycling centre (at least my brother is!):)


Kadazan-Malay Girls, thanks..I want to try recycling polystyrene containers like yours but they are hard to come by unless you buy electrical items like TV or washing machine..hehe


Thanks Autumn Belle, I like to collect them n turn them into something else when Im in the mood to create...but hope Im not going to be like those in Hoarders! Cluttering my house with
them all over...urgghhh..

One..forgot to tell you, Im still not successful in having mosaics in my post, Im scared if I press the wrong keys, all my photos will be lost! I have to learn more...

I love unique little pots - the more unusual the better. Your photographs are lovely.

One said...

They are beautiful. Do you think that bigger is better? As for the mosaic, you already have created one right? A mosaic is the same as a photo. Just post it like you do for a photo.

I like your containers! They are so adorable. I was wondering what that flower is in your header? It is a very delicate and beautiful flower.
thanks for stopping by!

Very cheerful pots and plantings. I just cleaned out my pots for the winter and am already looking forward to planting them next spring.

Leavesnbloom..Hi, welcome to my small garden! Thanks for the compliment..yes I love them too!



Hi Rosey...thank you. The flower is water hyacinth grown in my small pond, from the species Eichhornia crassipes. Yes they are beautiful but delicate and last only for one day. I love their lavender colour and the patern on the petals, almost like the patern on a peacock feather.


One...yes indeed they look better, thanks for the advice. Ok I have to experiment again...thanks.

Hi Chris...thanks for dropping by my small garden. You dont need pots, one look at your beautiful garden with gorgeous flowers n foliage esp the lavender make me wish I could live there! Have a great weekend!

Love your new 'look makeover'! You have a wonderful collection of cute pots. Gorgeous with all the lovely blooms and plants.

Thanks kitchen flavours...sometimes the same old pots look boring to me so needs to improvise and be creative!
