unexpected treasures

I love finding rare things, especially when it's by surprise.  A few months ago while I was out shooting some senior photos by a railroad track, my client stumbled upon several discarded track nails.  She gathered up a few for herself, and me.  I just knew I could come up with something fun for them.  And now I have that "something fun" in my flower pot!




I wrapped some thin twine around the bottom of the nail head several times and attached a zinc tag I purchased from The Graphics Fairy.  The tag says "sprout" in chalk.  You could also write grow or bloom.  I think these would be great as labels in a vegetable/herb garden, too.

Enjoy!

I like your cute pot in the ground. Did you just bury the whole pot?

No, it's jsut very shallow - bowl-like. :)
