Mum's The Word!
Its time again for another fabulous Lowe's Creative Ideas project and this month it is All About Mums!
So when I heard that was the theme I knew it would be a fun one to challenge myself with.
So after thinking about it for awhile...
And being inspired by Pinterest and pictures on Facebook....
I decided to do an entire week just about MUMS!
This vignette started with my favorite plaid fall rug and a new McCoy small pottery piece I got at a yardsale this weekend. Isn't it darling? I think it was $2! What a steal :)
I added it with some greenery and two containers of sedums. The green one is one that has been on the deck all summer. It is just a groundcover sedum start from the garden. But it has been so pretty even during the hot, dry weeks.
The hen and chicks is a new one from Lowe's, I loved the big fat petals. The container is from the same yardsale, I think this one was $1. It doesn't have any markings but I think it is old as well. Love the colors.
Another shot of the sedum. It was marked down to $3 and I will move it to my kitchen window for the winter then back outside next spring.
The mums I picked up were in the 4" pots. They were $1.99 and look beautiful. I love the smaller sized ones to tuck into nooks and crannies. I also have very good luck planting them and having them come back year after year if I buy the smaller sized ones.
I really loved the deep magenta color as well. They will be beautiful in the borders next year.
Okay, this is just day one! So come back for new ideas every day this week.
