Decorating with Pyrex

Friday morning in the commuter train, while meditating....I thought about this....

This poor succulent was way too big for this little planter and was in jeopardy....

I needed to change its pot pronto!

But what could I use?
Believe it or not, I had a vision....

Using this....


This little guy was hanging out unloved in my garden shed....I'm not a big fan of the brown Pyrex.
But I needed  a planter and it was ready and willing!

Don't they look great together?


I could almost hear the plant giggling!

Have a great week!

What a smart idea! Is there a problem with drainage though because there's no holes in the bottom of the bowl? I'm wanting to buy some plants for spring and want to find cute ways to display them in the house.

There's no problem with drainage because it is a succulent. I would only try those and cactii in Pyrex because there's no hole. Unless you're willing to drill a hole...If you do please blog about it! ;)
