Here Comes The Summer

Spring has sprung and has brought us two things: warmer weather and a ton of pollen! Tony, being an Arizona native, was quite surprised by how thoroughly caked in pollen Atlanta has recently become!

The climate change has also got us out working in the yard, planting things in the garden, making me think about all of my vintage planters, and how I should showcase some of my favorites here for you to see:

This large, multi-coned planter is my newest acquisition and it fits perfectly in the outside entryway of our home. I've never seen one quite like this before and I was very happy to find it. I love the color and the original speckled ceramic.

I've always wanted a Lagardo Tackett double-coned landscape pot made by Architectural Pottery, but they're outrageously expensive, so I was thrilled to find this tall Tackett-inspired piece a year ago. I love the hourglass shape and I really like the noodling design on this one, too. It's a very welcome addition to the foyer in our home!

Up next is the boat planter. I love its unique shape and size and it helps to bring some life into our great room.

We love bullet planters—we have a handful of them around the house. These two reside in our great room, between two of my terrariums and up against the glass wall.

This one rests in a cozy spot near our fireplace.

And, lastly, this one brings a colorful accent to our guest bedroom / home office.

So there you have it! This is just a small selection of some of my planters, but I think I'll save the rest of my exterior ones for a later post. I'd also like to offer a special thanks to Tony for putting up with my planter obsession and all of these plants and planters!
