Oh How I Wish Mr. Modtomic Was Possessed Of A Green Thumb. I Ain't Got Enough Pennies To Toss In The Well To Make It So. Status: Fake Plants It Is.
This post ain't really about the fake plants though. It's actually about the planters themselves. I've recently picked up a pair and I thought I'd show 'em off...see what you think of 'em!
This first one is ceramic bisque and I actually spotted it a couple weeks ago at a local Value Village
in south county. I didn't pick it up at the time but it stuck in my mind. I got to thinking that it might
actually be another piece of Architectural Pottery but it's probably not. It's still quite an attractive
And then I picked up this tripod planter base. It begs for a nice big bowl but it works nicely with
the bisque container as well. Gives it a real "Jetsons" feel. The bisque container goes nicely with
the Malcom Lealand Architectural Pottery hanging Totem that I picked up in Bloomington at the
Bronze Giraffe a while back.
This little plastic tripod planter was from the last estate sale I attended about a month ago. It was still
waiting for me out in the garage well after I had done a thorough recon of the rest of the joint. I was
kind of surprised when my partner Illuminate said that she had seen it out there but didn't pick it up. It
wasn't pricey at all and I think it's pretty cool!
