Here's a fun little scenario with a red impatiens plant and a little crafty doodled-on plate that's making me very happy right now, and it all happened quite by accident. Of course it's no accident that I saved this chipped plate to use under plants, just when I doodled the red design on the plate with a paint marker and baked it in the oven to see if that would help it be more permanent, (It helped a bit, but not entirely) well, I didn't have in mind pairing it with this plant.
I was cleaning up for Shabbos and wondering around with this plate in hand trying to find a place for it, when quite by accident I placed it under this little pot and voila, a great combination was born! So my friends, do save chipped plates to use under plants, and do apply some simple designs to them with permanent markers or paint pens, or if you want to go the whole route, you can do something really permanent with Pebeo pens. There really isn't anything much simpler that can give you so much visual pleasure and add a little personal touch to your container garden! And you can trust me by now, right?
