Outdoor This and That 8 - Copycat & Metamorphosis

I wanted to use this idea for Debbiedoo's copycat party earlier this week but the frame had to be re-glued, and I didn't get it ready in time.


The frame is from an old country sign my Mom gave me. I threw the sign part away and copied Stephanie Lynn's (Under the Table and Dreaming) framed pot of sedums.

My pot has Angelina sedum, Blue Spruce sedum and hen and chicks.
A nail in the frame holds the pot in place.


This is my inspiration! I think these are Angelina sedum.





Now for the metamorphosis part...

This is outdoor vignette that I blogged about in Today's Garden Junk!

I just moved the bird houses, the white enamelware pot with a nicotiana, and the milk can top with boxwood basil to join my new frame.









Lovin' that little frame!





you are talking too much />

  2. So cute Carlene. Darn, I just gave me daughter a red (almsot identical in color to yours) wormwood frame that I have had for years. It would have been so cute to do something similar. I love how the entire outdoor vignette turned out.

  3. Loving your garden vignette. and love the pot in the frame. I also love milk can top planter, so cool. I have a milk can out in the yard and I'll be putting a plant in it soon. The old frame is such a pretty chippy color, and love how you hung in below, such a cute vignette! So glad you shared your creative inspiration with Sunday’s Best – your creativity helped make the party a success!

  6. Came over from Charmer to see your garden vignette. You did an excellent job of copy-catting. Love the red frame - don't know that I could put it outside. I really get excited when I see someone who plants in every imaginable thing like I do. I do not like the look of everything in matching pots.

  9. Carlene, I like your flower pot in a frame. I think I might just have to copy you next summer or maybe this fall. Wouldn't a frame look pretty with mums in the pot? When I first saw your birdhouses and potted planted, my eye immediately went to the milk can top but I didn't recognize what it was. Glad you told it's true identity!------------ Shannon
