An amazing find...

We poppped into Reverse Garbage and the Bower at the Marrickville community center on Saturday... I love those places. It's so much fun trawling through the masses of ....stuff!  AND they were giving out delicious watermelon at the Bower!  I wanted to get some cool containers for some terrariums and to see if they had any pot saucers.
Jackpot! Not only did I find some glass dishes and some glass bowls but also these cutest little glazed ceramic dishes- and all for $10. How gorgeous would they be with bulbs in winter? In the meanwhile they make nice little homes for some succulent babies!

Little glazed pots - full of succulents
Had a nice morning of repotting ferns and succulents -  And here are the glass bowls.
Gave the garden some love- pumpkin flowers, germinating lettuce, aloe vera  taking off and disguised purple runner beans. 
I wrote this post as part of a blogging challenge devised by the Kitty from Polka Dots & Frocks for the Blog With Pip alumni on the topic “An amazing find”. Have a read of some other amazing entries, or add in your own here.


  1. How great are those purple beans....they are definitely going on my 'to plant' list! Would love to see pics of your terrariums when you've made them, Flick x

    1. The purple runner beans are certainly eye catching - and prolific! Lots of fun!

  2. Thanks for participating in the challenge! Those glazed pots are so cute - I want to go out and buy some now! Kitty @ Polka dots and frocks x
